SUMMARY

This article describes how to create a new Web site for the SoftGrid Management Web Service.

MORE INFORMATION

When you install the SoftGrid Management Web Service, two virtual directories are created in the default Web site. These virtual directories are named SoftGridManagement and SoftGridReporting.

Other applications may modify the default Web site. Therefore, the SoftGrid Management Console may be unable to connect to the SoftGrid Management Web Service. You may have to move the virtual directories to a new Web site on the same server.

Create the SoftGrid Administration Web site

To create the SoftGrid Administration Web site, follow these steps from the SoftGrid Management Web Service server:
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  2. Expand server_name, and then expand Web Sites.
  3. Right-click Web Sites, click New, and then click Web Site.
  4. In the Description box, type SoftGrid Administration, and then click Next.
  5. In the Enter the IP address to use for this Web site box, click the appropriate IP address.
  6. In the TCP port this Web site should use (Default: 80) box, type the appropriate port number.
  7. Leave the Host header for this Web Site (Default: None) box empty, and then click Next.
  8. In the Path box, click Browse.
  9. Expand %SystemDrive%, expand Program Files, and then expand Softricity.
  10. Click Softricity, and then click Make New Folder.
  11. Type SoftGrid Administration, and then click OK.
  12. Click to clear the Allow anonymous access to this Web site check box, and then click Next.
  13. Click to select the Run scripts (such as ASP) check box, click Next, and then click Finish.
The port number must not be in use by any other Web site or service on the server. If two Web sites share the same port, only one Web site can be running at a time.

Create the SoftGridManagement virtual directory

To create the SoftGridManagement virtual directory, follow these steps from the SoftGrid Management Web Service server:

  3. In the Alias box, type SoftGridManagement, and then click Next.
  4. In the Path box, click Browse.
  5. Expand %SystemDrive%, expand Program Files, and then expand Softricity.
  6. Click SoftGrid Management Service, click OK, and then click Next.
  7. Click to select the Run scripts (such as ASP) check box, click Next, and then click Finish.
  8. Right-click SoftGridManagement, and then click Properties.
  9. Click the Virtual Directory tab.
  10. In the Application pool box, click DefaultAppPool.
  11. Click the Directory Security tab.
  12. In the Authentication and access control box, click Edit.

Connect to the SoftGrid Management Web Service

By default, the SoftGrid Management Console uses port 80 to connect to the SoftGrid Management Web Service. Existing SoftGrid Management Console connections must be updated to use the new port number that was specified when the SoftGrid Administration Web site was created.
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  2. Expand Console Root, and then expand SoftGrid Systems.
  3. If a connection exists, right-click the connection, and then click Configure Connection.

    Note If a connection does not exist, right-click SoftGrid Systems, and then click Connect to SoftGrid Systems.
  4. In the Web Service Host Name box, type the host name, the DNS name, or the IP address of the SoftGrid Management Web Service server.
  5. In the Port box, type the port number that was specified when the SoftGrid Administration Web site was created, and then click OK.
  6. Click File, and then click Save to save the updated connection information.
