Foundation 23.1

When a change is necessary for a deployment instance, it can be updated or a new instance can be created. To update an existing instance or create a new instance:

  1. Select Start | All Programs | Hyland | Deployment | Deployment Wizard. The Welcome to the Deployment Wizard Creation Wizard dialog is displayed.

    Select Advanced Mode to enable the ability to update certain aspects of the update where the default values are populated by the installer. Not selecting this option automatically uses the default values populated by the installer.

  2. Click Next. The Package Selection dialog is displayed.
  3. Select the deployed module for which you are updating the instance.
  4. Click Next. The Instance Settings dialog is displayed.
  5. Select the name of the application instance from the drop-down list under the Instance Name section. To create a new instance name:
    1. Click the Add button to the right of the drop-down list. The Create New Instance dialog box is displayed.

      If you create a new instance name for an existing deployment, the package must be redeployed to client machines under the new instance name.

    2. Enter a name for the new instance in the field provided. The name entered is used to distinguish this deployment from other deployments, so it must be unique.

      The instance name cannot contain any of the following characters: [ ] < > , ; : + = " / \ | ? * # '

    3. Click OK.
  6. The Deployment Version Number fields can be used to manually set a new version number for this deployment. This number is used by client machines to determine if the application installed needs to be updated.

    The Deployment Version Number is incremented automatically by the deployment wizard. There is no need to change this number.


    The Deployment Version Number is not available unless Advanced Mode is selected on the Welcome to the Deployment Creation Wizard dialog. To enable the Deployment Version Number, click Back and select Advanced Mode on the Welcome to the Deployment Creation Wizard dialog.

  7. Select the Require clients to upgrade to version check box to force client machines to upgrade to the current instance. This option is selected by default.
  8. Click Next. The How do you want to deploy Unity Client ? dialog is displayed.
  9. Click the Web Server icon to deploy the application to client workstations via a URL (e.g., https://web-server/Application/DeployedApp.application).

    Click the From a Shared Folder icon to deploy the application to client workstations via a UNC path (e.g., \\machine-name\Application\DeployedApp.application).


    If you are upgrading an existing instance, you can only select to deploy it in the same method as it was deployed originally. For new instances, if IIS is not installed, you cannot select Web Server and must deploy the application via a UNC path.

  10. Click Next.

    For Web Server installations, go to the Web Server Add or Update Steps.

    For From a Shared Folder installations, go to the From a Shared Folder Installation Steps.
