Step 1.1: Copy the interactive install wizard to the target machine for Installation

Step 1.2: Run the interactive install wizard to configure the install options

Step 1: Downloading the installation script and running the interactive wizard

Step 2: Configure the installation

Step 2.1: Run the interactive wizard to configure the install options: The tool will gather inputs for most common install options and generate a configuration file that will be used during the installation.
Step 2.1: Basic configuration

Step 2.2: (Optional) Configure the advanced install options. The default install configuration includes the products used in the core automation platform, and a shared SQL server to be used by all products. To customize the products installed or have separate SQL servers used for specific products, you can do so by editing the configuration file. If you use a proxy to connect to the internet, you will configure it at this point.
Step 2.2: (Optional) Advanced configuration
After you finish editing the file, you can re-run the wizard to complete the installation.

Step 3: Installation complete

You have completed the installation successfully.

For a successful online single-node Automation Suite installation, take the following steps.

Step 1: Downloading the installation script and running the interactive wizard


This step needs to be performed from a machine with internet access where Automation Suite will be deployed. While these are finishing downloading, you can continue with the next steps.

Step 1.1: Copy the interactive installation wizard to the target machine for installation


  1. Connect to the machine using SSH.

If you set a password, the command is as follows:

ssh <user>@<dns_of_vm>

If you used an SSH key, the command is as follows:

ssh -i <path/to/Key.pem> <user>@<dns_of_vm>
  1. Become root:
sudo su -
  1. Move to home directory:
cd ~
  1. Download the installation package. Make sure to keep the ' (single quotes) around the download URL.
yum install wget -y
wget 'https://download.uipath.com/automation-suite/installUiPathAS.sh' -O installUiPathAS.sh
  1. Install unzip and jq:
yum install unzip jq -y

Step 1.2: Run the interactive install wizard to configure the install options


📘

Note:

This step generates a configuration file that will be used during the following installation process.

Run the script to begin interactive wizard:

chmod +x ~/installUiPathAS.sh
./installUiPathAS.sh

 

Step 2: Configuring the installation


Step 2.1: Basic configuration

Run the interactive install wizard to configure the installation options. The tool gathers inputs for most common installation options and generates a configuration file that you can use during the installation.

By running the installation using the default configuration, you are opting to run our default experience. You will install our core platform: Orchestrator, Insights, Test Manager, Action Center, Automation Ops, and Automation Hub.

Screen-by-screen interactive CLI guide

Upon start, you are at the main menu. Here you need to choose the deployment mode: single-node or multi-node. You are prompted with details about each mode once you make a choice. After that, you have the option to continue with the current choice or go back to the main menu.

Deployment configuration steps

  1. Select Install the UiPath Automation Suite.

  2. Select the deployment mode: select the single-node option.

  3. Select continue.

  4. Select online installation.

  5. Enter the DNS hostname.

  6. Specify whether you want to use Kerberos Auth for SQL connections.

  7. Enter the SQL Server URL. Follow the prompt to enter the connection port, username, and password.

  8. Specify whether you want the installer to automatically create the necessary DBs (see the next step for details).

  1. Once the configuration parameters are defined, the installer will autogenerate the configuration. You can edit the configuration parameters directly in the terminal.

📘

Note:

At this step, you can directly edit the cluster_config.json for advanced configuration settings in the UiPathAutomationSuite folder. After you edit the configuration file, you can rerun the wizard to complete the installation or complete manually.

You can go to the following section here: Advanced configuration step for more details. After editing, you can re-run the wizard to continue with installation.

Note: If you are installing Task Mining, make sure that you enable both AI Center and Task Mining in the cluster_config.json.

  1. At this point, you can proceed with the installation.
  1. The process will complete and you will have the suite installed on a given machine.

 

Step 2.2: (Optional) Advanced configuration


This step is optional.
You can find the cluster_config.json file in the UiPathAutomationSuite folder. You can use this file to enable additional products, disable any of the default products, configure your SQL DBs and their respective connection strings, and certificates. You can also enable proxy settings if you use a proxy for internet connection.

For single-node installation, note that you cannot enable High Availability.

For advanced configuration, see Advanced installation experience.

📘

Note:

You can re-run the wizard after the complete installation.

Note: If you only installed AI Center, we recommend resizing the PVC to 200 immediately after the installation to avoid downtimes. For more information on this, check Resizing PVC for AI Center.

 

Step 3: Installation complete


📘

Note:

You have completed the installation successfully.
