    The installation process will create a Control Room database with the name Automation360-Database on your SQL database server instance.
    However, if you are migrating from Enterprise 11 to Automation 360, the restored Enterprise 11 database will be used instead of the Automation 360 database.
    Note: Ensure the SQL database server is installed on a different server than that of the Control Room.
    The installation process checks for supported operating system and recommended hardware requirements. The following message appears if the requirements are not met:
    This system does not meet all the installation prerequisites for Automation Anywhere Enterprise. 
    Some features might not work as expected after installation. For details, verify the Control Room Installation Prerequisite. 
    For more information, see Automation 360 On-Premises prerequisites.
  2. Select the On-Premises deployment type and click Next.

  5. If you are upgrading from one Automation 360 version to another, confirm the upgrade and choose whether to use the existing installation parameters.
    Existing installation parameters include, for example: the installation path, HTTPS ports, database names, IP addresses, and TLS configuration. The username and password have to be manually entered.
    • Yes—all the installation parameters are pre-filled and disabled. You cannot change pre-filled fields.
    • No—enter the same or different installation parameters through the installation prompts.
      Note: Choose No if the previous installation did not use the default installation path C:\Program Files.
  6. To make changes to the destination folder, click Change, enter a new destination folder name, and click OK.
    Note: Do not install the application directly in the root directory (C:\). You should create a folder, for example, C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Automation360\.
  7. Click Next .
