So this is going to be a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to install HP ALM QC onto your (virtual) machine.
First, Find & Run the application setup
2nd, Select the Next Button >> Select “I Agree” to the License Agreement >> Select Next Button past Customer Information.
On the “Select Installation Folder” segment, choose the directory where you want to save the ALM software. I personally leave the default directory in place. >> Select the Next Button to start the Installation.
Now you just wait until ALM finishes installing >> Once it finishes the installation, select the Next Button.
Now a new dialog box pops up called the “HP ALM Platform Configuration Wizard”. >> Select the Next Button. >> At this stage the configuration wizard will ask you for a license key & maintenance key. Don’t do anything with those. Instead, below those next to a Check Box is the text, “Use Evaluation Key”. Check the Check Box.
Select the “Quality Center Start Edition”. >> Select the Next Button. >> On the Security segment, locate the “Confidential Data Encryption” box. In the “confidential data passphrase” input field, enter the number “1” 13x times. Alternatively, I think checking the check box next to the text, “Use default value (unsecure)” would work just as well. >> Underneath the 1st box is the “communication Security” box. In the “Communication security passphrase” input field, enter again number “1” 13x times. >> Then Select the Next Button.
At the Application Server to the Mail Server segment, don’t change anything and Select the Next Button. At the Database Server change the password to abc >> Select the Next Button. >> At the “Site Administrator User” leave abc as the Admin Username and Password. Then Select the Next Button.
Select the Next Button pas the Installation Summery. Now the HP ALM Platform Configuration Wizard will Apply the Configurations you specified. >> Now your done at the Finish segment. You have the option to Start JBoss. To end the application, Select the Finish Button.
Your HP ALM Quality Center Software is now installed. However, it is not yet ready to be used. There are a few things you need to setup in order to start using the software, which you can see here.
