Installing the Client Tools

The Spectrum™ Technology Platform client tools are applications that you use to administer your server and design and run dataflows and process flows. You must install your Spectrum™ Technology Platform server before installing the client tools.

Before installing, be sure to read the release notes. The release notes contains important compatibility information as well as release-specific installation notes.

This procedure describes how to install the following client tools:

Note: As of Spectrum version 11.0, Management Console is a web-based tool rather than installable client as it was in previous releases.

To install the client tools:

  1. Open a web browser and go to the Spectrum™ Technology Platform Welcome Page at:

    http://<servername>:<port>

    For example, if you installed Spectrum™ Technology Platform on a computer named "myspectrumplatform" and it is using the default HTTP port 8080, you would go to:

    http://myspectrumplatform:8080

  2. Click Platform Client Tools.
  3. Download the client tool you want to install.
