Verify readiness for installation on Microsoft Azure

Use these steps to configure third-party products for the Control Room installation.

Note: There are many possible system configurations and requirements. These installation steps do not account for all those possibilities so your specific setup and installation steps will vary and Automation Anywhere does not make any warranties that these steps conform with your specific configurations.
To configure third-party products prior to installation, do the following steps:


  1. Ensure the installation environment meets the data center requirements and collect the necessary information about the following components:
    • Load balancer - IP address

    • Microsoft SQL Server - port credentials

    • Azure SMB file share - address credentials

    • Enterprise identity management system (optional)

      If you have Active Directory (AD) - AD server domain credentials

    • SMTP - host port HTTP/S ports for TLS (optional)

    • Control Room servers - Have Windows credential manager installed

    Refer to Supported data center component versions on Microsoft Azure for configuration and version information.
  2. Configure the Network Security Group as per the recommended security policies for Inbound Port rules:
    Data center object Port Protocol
    Control Room
    • 80
    • 443
    • 3268
    • 3269
    email SMTP 587 Any
    SSH 22 Any
    RDP 3389 TCP
  3. Configure the AD server.
    Ensure all users are part of the AD domain and the AD server is setup in IaaS mode for Azure cluster environment installations. To add user, navigate to Active Directory Users and Computers > <domain> > Users and add the necessary user.
    To configure the AD server on Azure with IDaaS, refer to the Microsoft Azure documentation.
  4. Ensure the Control Room servers in the cluster can ping each other.

    If the ping is not successful:

    1. In Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security>Inbound rules, set the following values for the file and printer sharing firewall rule:
      • Name: File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)
      • Group: File and Printer Sharing
      • Profile:All
      • Enabled: Yes
      • Action: Allow
      • Override: No
      • Program: Any
      • Local address: Any
      • Remote address: Any
      • Protocol: ICMPv4
    2. Ping the Control Room after enabling the firewall rule change.
