Refer to the Lookout Release Notes for detailed information about installing Lookout. This section describes additional installation considerations.
The Lookout software requires Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (SQL Express). This component is installed by default when you install Lookout. During the installation process, the Lookout installer creates an instance of SQL Express named CITADEL. To prevent unauthorized access to SQL Express, the installer also generates a password for the SQL Express administrator sa. The default password is the computer ID. Complete the following steps to find the computer ID using NI License Manager.
The Lookout installer enables a mixed security mode on existing SQL Servers. If the target computer does not have an SQL Server installed, the Lookout installer installs SQL Express in the mixed security mode.
Use the following command line prompt to change the default password for the sa user:
Sqlcmd -S"localhostCITADEL" -U"sa" -P"COMPUTER_ID" -Q"sp_password 'COMPUTER_ID', 'NEW_PASSWORD', 'sa'"
If the mixed security mode is not acceptable, change both the SQL Express and Citadel login modes. You must set the registry DWORD values HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMSSQLServerMSSQLServerLoginMode and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARENational InstrumentsCitadel.0IntegratedSecurity to 1.
National Instruments recommends that you change the login mode immediately after you install Lookout. Otherwise, you must relink all existing Citadel databases. Restart the SQL Express and Citadel services in order for changes to take effect. If you use integrated NT security, you might need to configure the server machine and all clients explicitly.
Note: Lookout 6.0.2 and earlier use Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000), not SQL Express. If you upgrade Lookout 6.0.2 or earlier to Lookout 6.5, any existing databases continue to use MSDE 2000 for alarm logging, but new databases you create use SQL Express. If you detach an existing database from Lookout and then reattach the database, Lookout migrates the database to SQL Express.
You might want to uninstall MSDE 2000 after installing Lookout 6.5. Complete the following steps to uninstall MSDE 2000.
Exit Lookout if Lookout is running.
Open NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) and select My System»Historical Data»Citadel 5 Universe from the Configuration tree.
On the Databases page, detach all databases from the local computer.
Open the Windows Control Panel and uninstall MSDE 2000.
Restart the computer.
Open MAX and reattach all databases.
Lookout relies on licensing activation. You must activate a valid Lookout license before you can run Lookout. To activate Lookout, use the serial number you received as part of your installation package.
Refer to the Lookout Release Notes for more information about licensing in Lookout.Features and Changes
