INTRODUCTION
The Logi Ad Hoc Management Console is the primary management utility for the
centralized administration of all Ad Hoc Reporting instances. As such, it is
version specific and allows the System Administrator to exercise various utilities
related to an Ad Hoc Reporting instance.




Create Ad Hoc Reporting instances
Upgrade Ad Hoc Reporting instances to the installed version
Remove Ad Hoc Reporting instances
Exercise various utilities related to an Ad Hoc Reporting instance
Note:
When installed on the same server, Management Console also allows the
System Administrator to create, upgrade and repair Ad Hoc instances. This is the
recommended configuration. For more information about this configuration,
please see our online document: General Guide to Installing Logi Ad Hoc Report
Builder.
Note:
The Management Console is not our web-based reporting application. It is,
as the name implies, the application used to create, configure and manage Logi
Ad Hoc instances. A Logi Ad Hoc instance is our web-based reporting
application.
This Guide covers the installation of the Logi Ad Hoc Management Console
(referred to as “the MC” in the remainder of this document). The following
information is included in this guide:

Target Audience
This guide is intended for the System Administrator. The successful installation of
the MC requires knowledge of the network and reporting architecture. For
additional technical documentation or support for this or any other Logi Analytics
product, please visit our web site at http://www.logianalytics.com/support/.

System Requirements
The MC requires the following components installed server-side:


Windows 2000, 2003, XP Professional or Vista
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
Installation Process
The MC is typically installed on the primary web server; however, this is not
required. As a central management facility for all Logi Ad Hoc Reporting
instances, the MC should be installed on a server that has connectivity to all
potential reporting web servers.
The expected end result of the installation process is:
 Creation of an installation folder, if necessary
 Establishing the base application in the folder
 Creation of a program group and various shortcuts to exercise the
application
 Acquisition of a license file
Note:
Privileges sufficient to allow installation of software on the server are required to
install the application. Typically this implies “Administrator” privileges.

New Installation
The MC is typically deployed on a web server; however, it may be installed on
any machine that is configured to serve as a central management area for all
intended web servers.
Note:
The MC requires the .NET Framework 2.0. If the.NET Framework 2.0 has not
been installed previously, the installation script will attempt to acquire and install
it. In that case, Internet connectivity will be required to complete the installation.
Simply confirm the installation when prompted.
Note:
The installation script is a typical wizard-based application. You may Cancel the
installation at various points and may exercise the Back button to review or respecify information.
Hint:
The MC is very version oriented! It is strongly suggested that the version
information is retained in the Program Group as well as the physical folder name.
Following are the execution steps and expected results of a new installation of
the MC:
1) Launch the installation executable. After a brief examination of the
installation package, the script will present the following dialog:

Logi Analytics was formerly known as LogiXML
2) Click on the Next button to continue the installation.
3) The installation script will present the following dialog:
Page 7
4) Click on the “accept” option after reading the agreement
Note:
The Logi Analytics Software License Agreement may also be reviewed online. A
link is presented in the Logi Ad Hoc Management Console.
5) Click on the Next button to continue the installation
6) The installation script will present the following dialog:
7) Use the Complete option if you want to also install the Logi Ad Hoc
Scheduler on this server. Otherwise click the Typical option.*
* For information about Logi Ad Hoc Scheduler see our online document
Introducing the Logi Scheduler for Ad Hoc.
8) The default destination folder is presented

9) Clicking on the Change button will present a “select folder” dialog. You
may either select an existing folder or create a new folder for the
application
10) Click on the Next button to continue the installation
11) The installation script will present the following dialog:
Page 9
12) Click on the Install button to continue the installation
13) The installation script will present the following progress indicator dialog:
Page 10
14) When this portion of the installation is complete, the Next button will
become active
15) Click on the Next button to display the final dialog.
16) Dismiss the dialog by clicking on the Finish button.

1)
2)
3)
4)
Make sure that the folder specified during the installation is populated
Look for the program group and shortcuts
Launch the Management Console from the shortcut
Using the Documentation shortcut, review a few of the documents. For
information on using the application to manage Logi Ad Hoc Reporting
instances, refer to the Logi Ad Hoc Management Console Usage Guide.

Acquisition of the License File
For new installations of the Management Console, the System Administrator
must download a license file and place it in the proper location.
Note:
If any Version 10 edition of the Management Console has already been installed
on the server, there is no need to acquire a license file. All Version 10 editions
will operate using the original license file.
Note:
With Version 10, the License and Activation Manager used in prior versions is no
longer necessary.
Target Location
The default location of the license file is in the root folder of the Version 10
Management Console install. The typical installation folder structure looks like:
C:\
Program Files\
LogiXML Ad Hoc 10\
LogiXML Ad Hoc Report Builder 10.0.n\
LogiXML Ad Hoc Report Builder 10.0.nn\
In this case, the root folder would be “LogiXML Ad Hoc 10”. The subordinate
folders would contain different versions of the Management Console.
Downloading the License File
To download the license file, go to the License Manager on Logi Devnet web site.
You will be required to login.
For additional background information on licenses, go to the License Document
on the web site.
If additional licenses are needed or there are questions, please contact Customer
Support. The contact information is on the last page of this document.

Removal Process
There are two techniques to remove the MC from the server; use the Windows
Add/Remove Programs facility or use the original installation executable.
Note(s):
Removal of the MC will not remove any instances of Logi Ad Hoc Reporting.
These instructions will remove only the Management Console. Removal of the
MC will eliminate the option of managing the Logi Ad Hoc Reporting instances
using this version of the MC.
It is strongly recommended that the System Administrator understand the
implications of removing the Management Console!
The Windows Add/Remove Programs facility is well documented elsewhere.
To remove the MC using the original installation executable:
1) Launch the installation executable
2) The installation script will detect if an existing application already exists
3) If so, the following dialog is presented:
Page 13
4) Click on the Next button to continue the removal process
5) The following dialog will be presented:
6) Click the Remove option and Next to continue the removal process
Page 14
7) The following confirmation dialog will be presented:
8) Click on the Remove button to continue the process
Page 15
9) The following notification dialog will be presented:
10) Click on the Finish button to complete the removal process
At this point the original installation folder should have been removed along with
all of the contents. In addition, the program group should have been removed to
the extent possible.

Repair or Modify Processes
In the event the MC becomes corrupted or unstable, it is possible to repair the
MC using the installation executable. Usually this happens by an inadvertent
manual adjustment to the folders/files of the original installation.
If there are additional features that need to be installed, such as the Logi Ad Hoc
Scheduler, that were not installed initially the Modify option will install the
necessary features.
To repair the MC using the original installation executable:
1) Launch the MC installation executable
2) The installation script will detect if an existing MC already exists
3) If so, the following dialog is presented:
4) Click Next and you get the option to Modify, Repair or Remove the MC
Page 17
5) Select Repair and click on the Next button to continue the repair process
or if you didn’t install Logi Scheduler before and wish to do that, choose
Modify and click Next
Page 18
6) If Modify has been selected, the following dialog will be presented:
7) Select the items from the list that should be installed. Currently the only
extended feature is the Logi Ad Hoc Scheduler
8) The following dialog will be presented:
Page 19
9) Click on the Install button to install the Logi Ad Hoc Scheduler
Page 20
10) Once the Modify or Repair process has completed, the following
notification dialog will be presented:
11) Click on the Finish button to dismiss the dialog
At this point the MC will have been repopulated with the correct files. Any broken
program group or shortcuts will have been repaired.
To verify the repair process:
1) Look for the program group and shortcuts
2) Launch the Management Console from the shortcut
3) Using the Documentation shortcut, review a few of the documents. For
information on using the MC to manage Logi Ad Hoc Reporting instances,
refer to the Logi Ad Hoc Management Console Usage Guide.
4) Verify that the original reason for the repair or modification has been
addressed
