Web Starter - Setup Notes

If you have deployed one or more servers using the Web Starter template, you may need the following information to get started quickly:

1. SQL Server Installation

In the attached file you will find a short-cut file for both the SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 installation. Copy the file you need (2008 R2 or 2012) to the server you have deployed and then double-click it to initiate the SQL Server installation.  If you are not familiar with SQL Server 2008 or 2012 you may need to seek some guidance during the install.

2. New Relic Installation

New Relic is already installed and ready to start monitoring your web applications (.Net).  In the attached file you will find a short-cut file that will link to the New Relic configuration file for your server.  

Within the file, locate the following:

<service licenseKey="put-your-key-here" ssl="false">

Replace "put-your-key-here" with your application license key from the New Relic website (keep the quotes).

To get the New Relic key, log into vGRID customer portal, click on the 'Applications' tab and then click on 'Control Panel' for New Relic. This will finish setting your New Relic account up and provide the key you need to use. 


The attached zip file contains the following short-cut files that relate to the two installation/configuration guides above.
