Reference installation introduction

This section details how you can create a reference installation of IPC and how IPC components are installed and pre-configured, as far as possible, allowing for large installations to be completed as smoothly as possible.

A reference installation may be copied to all the tills in an estate in advance of IPC go-live.

Note: To set IPC live, some tasks must be completed on the day. These tasks are minimal and can be scripted to allow an unattended go-live process.

The IPC installer creates the required directories, checks and locates pre-requisites such as JRE, and creates executable scripts required for IPC startup etc. The IPC configuration utility allows you to configure IPC for the correct PED, PED connection, and a myriad of other options.
