Install a Remote Pipeline Server via the Windows Installer

These instructions explain how to install a Remote Pipeline Server using the graphical installer for Windows.

A Remote Pipeline Server works in co-ordination with an existing LabKey Server installation, especially to execute long-running, data-intensive pipeline jobs assigned to it by the LabKey Server machine. You cannot install LabKey Server and a Remote Pipeline Server on the same machine: install the Remote Pipeline Server on a physically different machine than the one running LabKey Server. LabKey Server (i.e., the web server and database server) is not included in the Remote Pipeline Server installation.

Steps to Install: Remote Pipeline Server

  • Download and run the Windows installer: free download after registration.
  • On the Installation Type page, select Remote Pipeline Server.
  • Accept the license agreement.
  • To use the wizard-based installation, select Config Wizard.
  • Specify the JMS Server to communicate with the Remote Pipeline Server:
    • host
    • port.
  • Specify the pipeline file locations.
    • LabKey Server webserver path to data files
    • Pipeline Remote Server path to data files
  • Specify how to mount the network file share, either automatically or externally.
  • If you choose automatically, you'll also be prompted to specify information for mapping a network drive where LabKey Server can access files on a remote server:
    • Drive Letter
    • Network Drive Path (the UNC path to the remote server)
    • DOMAIN\username and password for accessing that share. User name and password can be left blank if they are not required by the file share.
  • Accept the MSFileReader agreement. MSFileReader is a 3rd party tool that converts binary mass spectrometry files to the mzXML format.
  • Specify the directory location for the Remote Pipeline Server installation.
