How to Convert a Standalone Installation of MET/TEAM into a Server Installation

When installing MET/TEAM, you have the option to choose either a standalone or server installation. If standalone is chosen, only the computer with MET/TEAM installed on it will have access to its website. A server installation, on the other hand, makes the website and its shared resources available to all networked computers.

This article shows how to convert a standalone installation into a server installation without having to perform a complete reinstall.

On the MET/TEAM server, first open an administrator Command Prompt. It can be found by searching for "cmd", and can be ran as administrator by right-clicking on its icon.

When it is launched, you should notice the word "Administrator" on the title bar of the window.

Once the Command Prompt is open, enter these four commands individually:

  1. netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="MET/TEAM Web Site" dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=35853
  2. netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="MET/TEAM Customer Portal Web Site" dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=35855
  3. net share metteam=”C:\Program Files (x86)\Fluke\METTEAM” /grant:Everyone,full
  4. net share metcal=C:\ProgramData\Fluke\METCAL\Shared /grant:Everyone,full

Executing the first two commands opens up firewall ports 35853 and 35855 on the server, which are the default port numbers used by MET/TEAM and Customer Portal, respectively. The second two commands create network shares for the MET/TEAM installer directory and the MET/CAL shared directory.
