The VantagePoint Portal will start at the end of the installation process and allows you to start viewing and analyzing your manufacturing data. This Quick Start Guide will help you with your initial configuration. Detailed information about each step and the capabilities of VantagePoint can be found in the online Help file which is installed with the server. Please check the website www.incuity.com for updates to this document. Step 1: Installing FactoryTalk VantagePoint Server Preparing the FactoryTalk VantagePoint Server Machine Network Considerations  The FactoryTalk VantagePoint Server should be installed on a server that has: ã   Network access to the plant data sources (Control systems, HMI systems and historians) that VantagePoint will be configured to access data from; and ã   Is accessible to the intended FactoryTalk VantagePoint Users. In environments where control networks have been separated from business networks the Server will require a network card attached to each network.    VantagePoint Getting Results Guide v3.1, Rev A  Page 2 This figure shows a typical architecture with the server running VantagePoint having access to several data sources. Users of VantagePoint connect to the VantagePoint Portal (which runs on the server) to begin working with the system. Server Platform Considerations Production installations of FactoryTalk VantagePoint Server require: ã   Windows Server 2003; ã   SQL Server 2005, Standard Edition; and ã   Microsoft Excel 2007.  These products in addition to all applicable service packs and updates should be installed prior  to the installation of the FactoryTalk VantagePoint Server.  The Windows Server should be configured as an Application Server and a member of the domain (if applicable to your organization). If you are using a domain, it is recommended that you be logged onto the server where you will be installing VantagePoint as a domain user that has local administrator rights on the server.
