EMS Administration Guide

Installation and Licensing

Before you install and license FortiClient EMS on a server, ensure you have:

  • Reviewed Licenses
  • Met the requirements listed in Required services and ports
  • Completed the Server readiness checklist for installation
  • Logged into the server as the administrator. The administrator user account is equivalent to a Windows administrator account and provides access to all common services, FortiClient EMS, and other application tasks. You can use this account to initially log into the server and to create other user accounts for normal day-to-day use of the applications.

It is recommended you install FortiClient EMS on a dedicated server in a controlled environment. Installing other software applications can interfere with normal operation of FortiClient EMS.
