Install Domain Time II

    Please read the Installing Domain Time II overview pages before installing. Domain Time II Manager and its supporting programs are included as part of the Domain Time II Management Tools.

    IMPORTANT:
    The Domain Time II Management Tools software for Windows comes in two distinct versions: one made specifically for 32-bit (i386) processors and the other for 64-bit (AMD64/EM64T) processors.

    Domain Time II Manager can remotely control and monitor machines already running either the 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Domain Time II Server, Client or Audit Server; HOWEVER, it can only install, upgrade or remove components from machines running on the same platform as the Domain Time II Manager machine. In other words, if the 64-bit version of Domain Time II Manager is installed, it can only install software to other 64-bit machines. Conversely, if the 32-bit version of Domain Time II Manager is installed, it can only install to other 32-bit machines.

    The above restriction applies to the Domain Time II Update Service as well.


    IMPORTANT NOTES:

    • If you will be installing Domain Time II onto machines with AMD processors, we highly recommend you update your processor drivers (a.k.a. PowerNow!) to the current version for your operating system available from AMD's website to avoid known hardware timing issues. Please see this article from our knowledgebase for more info: KB2007.817.
    • Any tools that calculate comparative time variances (such as Domain Time II Monitor Service, the Domain Time II Manager variance report, DTCheck utility, etc.) cannot be relied upon to provide accurate results when executed from a virtual OS. These should be run on physical machines.

    Installation/Upgrade

    • To install or upgrade Domain Time Management Tools on a single machine from the distribution setup files:

      1. Run the Setup program from the CD to install the program. Choose the option to install the Management Tools (If you have an older version of the Management Tools installed, Setup will give you an upgrade option. Your original configuration settings will be preserved during the upgrade). See this page for details on using the Setup utlity.

      2. Start the Domain Time II Manager program from the Start Menu --> Program Files --> Domain Time II folder.

      3. Use the Advanced tab page to enter the broadcast addresses for all subnets you have on your network.

      4. Use the Advanced tab page to edit the DOMTIME.INI template file to include any default settings you want the Domain Time components to have when they're installed.

      5. Use the Batch Operations tab page to scan the network and install Domain Time II Servers and Clients on all machines.

      6. Double-click any machine name on the Browse tab page to individually install/upgrade/remove or configure the Domain Time service on that machine (machines can be manually added to the Browse list if they do not appear automatically).

      7. Use the Advanced tab page to install the Update and/or Monitor services if desired. If you have purchased Audit Server, you may install it from this tab (see the Audit Server documentation for details).

      8. Use the Browse tab page to connect to (double-click) any machines you want included in variance reports, and click the Options icon and enable the "Respond to DTCheck (variance query)" function.

      9. Use the Variance Report tab page to test your network to be sure all machines are synchronized

    Removal

    • Use Add/Remove Programs utility from the Control Panel to remove the program (you may also need to separately remove any installed services such Monitor Service, Update Server, or Audit Server).

    • You may also use the original Setup program to remove the program. Run Setup as described above and choose the Remove option.
