Distributed Information Server Deployment and adding new components - Detailed Steps

I thought of sharing certain steps I followed to install new components on existing Information Server deployment in distributed environment so can be useful to others.  In our example we discuss how we can install and Configure Information Server Director (ISD) Product as new install in distributed environment with following configuration and then adding products DataStage(DS) and QualityStage(QS).

Machine 1 – Services tier and Repository tier
Machine 2 – Engine tier

Steps to perform Initial Install (ISD on Distributed Environment)
Start the installer on Machine 1 to install Services and Repository tier for ISD product and follow the wizard using below flow.

Invoke the installer on Machine 2 to finish Engine tier install for ISD.  Use below flow - Initial flow is same as above.

Steps to perform Add-On Product Install (Later Stage)

Now start installer on Machine 1 to add products DS and QS.  Use below flow - Initial screens of the wizard are same as shown above.


Invoke the installer on Machine2 to complete adding products DS and QS.  Use below flow – initial screens are same as described above.

Restart the machine once to finish the installation before use.
