Checklist for completing post-installation tasks

  Configuring to use IPv6 addresses

You can use IPv6 addresses for the primary server and some of the other IP addresses in Ricoh ProcessDirector.

  Logging in for the first time

After you install, reboot the primary computer and log in to Ricoh ProcessDirector using a Web browser.

  Verifying the installation

If you have finished installing Ricoh ProcessDirector and want to verify the installation, use this procedure to enable the Sample printer, submit a test job to the HotFolderPDF input device, and process the job.

  Optional: Deleting temporary installer files

If a file system named /aiwtmp remains on your system after the Ricoh ProcessDirector installer has finished an installation, you can delete that folder and all its contents.

  Installing features using Feature Manager

After you install the base product, you can install features using the Feature Manager.

  Downloading and installing license keys for Ricoh ProcessDirector

If you have purchased Ricoh ProcessDirector or any feature, use this procedure to download license keys and install them.

  Configuring Ricoh ProcessDirector

You use the user interface to complete configuration tasks for Ricoh ProcessDirector, such as setting up job processing, defining input devices for job submission, defining your printer hardware to Ricoh ProcessDirector, and adding users. The Ricoh ProcessDirector information center describes these configuration tasks.

  Optional: Enabling Transport Layer Security

You can activate Transport Layer Security (TLS) in the Web server component of Ricoh ProcessDirector and link it to an existing digital certificate.

  Scheduling automatic maintenance

Ricoh ProcessDirector provides maintenance scripts that must be run regularly on the primary computer to improve performance. By default, Ricoh ProcessDirector runs these scripts every day at midnight. You can change the time or frequency, and you can run your own maintenance scripts at the same time.

  Optional: Replacing your control files with the sample files

When you install a new version of Ricoh ProcessDirector, the installer automatically adds new sample control files to the /aiw/aiw1/samples directory and copies them to your control files directory, /aiw/aiw1/control_files. It does not overwrite any of your customized control files in /aiw/aiw1/control_files. You can use the copyConfigurationFiles script to install the default control files or to overwrite your customized control files.

  Optional: Copying objects from another system

To reuse objects from another Ricoh ProcessDirector system, you can use the other system to export them. On this Ricoh ProcessDirector system, you can import the objects rather than recreating them manually.

  Optional: Installing and configuring the pdpr script

If you are migrating from InfoPrint Manager and you use the pdpr command to submit jobs, you can install the Ricoh ProcessDirector pdpr script on the computers that submit jobs and use the same command to send jobs to Ricoh ProcessDirector.

  Optional: Setting up to use LDAP authentication

If you have an existing LDAP or Active Directory server, you can use LDAP or Active Directory user names and passwords to authenticate into Ricoh ProcessDirector.
