Before you install and start the DataDirect Cloud On-Premise Connector, make sure that the environment is prepared:
Exit or close all applications to prevent file-locking conflicts.
If you are upgrading an existing installation, it is recommended that you stop the On-Premise Connector services before performing the upgrade. To stop the services, select Stop Services in the Progress DataDirect Cloud On-Premise Connector program group.
The default installation directory is C:\Program Files\Progress\DataDirect\Cloud_OnPremise_Connector. You can change this during installation.
During installation, you must provide your DataDirect Cloud User ID and Password. This is the same user ID and password used to log in to DataDirect Cloud. The DataDirect Cloud On-Premise Connector uses this user ID and password to register the On-Premise Connector with DataDirect Cloud. An active DataDirect Cloud account is needed for the On-Premise Connector to be registered with DataDirect Cloud. DataDirect Cloud can only access Connectors that have been registered with it. The On-Premise Connector handles registration automatically. The user only needs to specify the DataDirect Cloud User ID and password.
Optionally, you can watch a video about installing the On-Premise Connector.
