  1. Check that you have fulfilled the Enterprise Console prerequisites before starting.

  2. Open a browser and navigate to the GUI: 

    No Format

    9191 is the default port.

  3. Select Express Install to install a Controller and Events Service on a shared host.
  4. Name the Platform:

    1. Enter a Name and the Installation Path for your platform.


      The Installation Path is an absolute path under which all of the platform components are installed. The same path is used for all hosts added to the platform. Use a path which does not have any existing AppDynamics components installed under it.
      The path you choose must be writeable, i.e. the user who installed the Enterprise Console should have write permissions to that folder. Also the same path should be writeable on all of the hosts that the Enterprise Console manages.

      Example path: /home/appduser/appdynamics/product


      You do not need to specify the installation or data directory for Events Service installation. If you do, use a different one from the platform directory.

  5. Add a Host:


    If the Controller is to be installed on a Windows machine, the Enterprise Console should be on the same machine. This is because Windows hosts are not supported on the Enterprise Console.

    1. Enter the host machine related information: Host Name, Username, and Private Key. To add the Enterprise Console host, leave the host name as "platformadmin" and you don't need to provide a credential. The Controller and Events Service will be installed on the same host as the Enterprise Console.


      If you use the platformadmin host to install the Controller, then no Username or Private Key is required. You can also install the Controller and Events Service on a remote host. In that case, the Username and Private Key of the remote host would be required.

  6. Install the Controller:
    1. Select a Profile size for your Controller. See Controller System Requirements for more information on the sizing requirements.
    2. Enter the required Username and Passwords. The default Controller Admin Username is admin.
  7. Click Install.
