Installing TSM

Installing TSM

1. Obtain a copy of the TSM installation file. This is can be found on the TSM Installation CD provided to new customers. If the Installation CD cannot be found, please contact the TSM Support desk for a temporary link where the file can be downloaded.

Once the file has been found, execute it. You will be greeted with the welcome screen. Click “Next”.

2. The TSM Licence Agreement will now be displayed. Advise the client to carefully read the Licence Agreement. When they approve of the Agreement, have them select the “I accept the agreement” option and click “Next”.

3. You will now be asked for the directory to install TSM to. The preferred standard is to create a mapped drive (usually T:\) and to install to a ‘TSM’ directory under this.
Do not install to an IP address.
Do not install to the root of a mapped drive.
Once you have selected the correct location, click “Next”.

4. The next screen will ask you which Start Menu group to add the TSM icons to. You may either click browse and select an existing group, or leave the default and click “Next”

5. The next screen will ask whether you would like to create a desktop icon and a quick launch icon. Tick or untick the box as appropriate and click “Next”

6. A screen will appear which allows you to review the choices you’ve made in the previous steps. Once you have confirmed the details, click “Install”

7. The installer will now begin copying files.

8. Once this is finished, the final screen will be displayed. Click “Finish” to close the installer.

You may now run TSM, either by double clicking the desktop icon which was created, or by launching the executable from the directory you chose to install to.

When TSM is run for the first time, it will begin a check and reindex. This will take 2-3 minutes to complete.
