This section describes the installation and configuration procedures that you perform specifically for CA Anomaly Detector.
Co-Installation
You can install CA Anomaly Detector on the same server that hosts 
DX NetOps
 software or on a separate server. However, even though installing it on the NFA console is supported, it is highly recommended to have CA Anomaly Detector on a separate server.
Installing CA Anomaly Detector on the same server as
DX NetOps
is only recommended for short trials.
The following table shows the supported configurations for co-installing CA Anomaly Detector with related software.
  • With 
    DX NetOps
    : You can install CA Anomaly Detector on a server that already hosts a stand-alone 
    DX NetOps
     deployment or the NFA console in a distributed deployment.

    • CA Performance Center (CA PC)
    • CA NetQoS Performance Center (CA NPC)
    • CA Application Delivery Analysis (CA ADA)
    • CA Unified Communications Monitor (CA UC Monitor)

Prerequisites
Before you install or upgrade CA Anomaly Detector, perform the following tasks:
  • If you are co-installing CA Anomaly Detector on a server with
    DX NetOps
    , complete the 
    DX NetOps
    installation or upgrade before you install CA Anomaly Detector.
    You can install CA Anomaly Detector on the server that hosts a stand-alone 
    DX NetOps
    deployment or the NFA console server in a distributed deployment.
  • (Recommended) Review the topology of your network. For example, create a diagram of your network and its connections to ensure that you monitor the correct devices for the traffic that interests you.
  • (Recommended) Collect information about the Performance Center deployment, including the locations and IP addresses for all related components.
  • Verify that you have access to the servers that host Performance Center and the products you want to monitor. Make sure that all of the products are configured and functioning properly, including flow configuration on the routers.
  • Prepare the server as described for 
    DX NetOps
    .
  • Stop other programs from running during the installation or upgrade.
  • Restart all servers to ensure that all operating system patches are applied.
  • Ensure that no one else is logged in to the server during the installation or upgrade.
  • Download the installation and upgrade files.
  • Check the
    nsas
    database.
  • Stop the services.
  • Back up the database and restart the services.
