Human Resources VIP Installation

Over the summer of 2012 VIP users will be converted to the VIP 7G Desktop Portal environment.  IT support staff should follow these instructions to ensure the installation of all needed components of VIP on their users' systems.  Some users will still need to access the VIP 6G environment while they await training.

Installation requirements:

Windows XP/Windows 7 (Windows Vista is supported on a best-effort basis)
Zenworks 7/10*/11
Novell CNS authentication (Novel Client installed)

* Use and support of Zenworks 10 will be discontinued by I.S.T. in August 2012.
The installation is handled through Zenworks application objects/bundles .   These are found by clicking on the Start button and then browsing to:
Zenworks 7/10: CNS Programs – Software - Business Systems
Zenworks 11: Corporate – VIP

Please follow all recommended reboots.  These steps should be executed on the client workstation by the user who will be accessing VIP.  They should have administrative privileges to the machine when performing the installs.  The user can be elevated during the installation process and then have their rights downgraded after the install is successful.

Installation instructions for Windows XP and Zenworks 7

As Windows XP and Zenworks 7 support is being withdrawn from the industry I.S.T. recommends their users upgrade to Windows 7 and Zenworks 10/11.2.

Step 1 – VIP 6G Client Server Environment

The VIP 6G install is optional.  If your users will be operating only within the VIP 7G environment then you can skip this step.

1.  Install an Oracle InstantClient on their workstation.  Further development in Zenworks 7 is being halted, and there are no up-to-date Oracle clients available through these means.  If your user's workstation does not already have a properly configured Oracle client please contact the Help & Solutions Centre to have your request directed to the appropriate department for assistance.
2. Install "Human Resources VIP Run-time Installation"

Step 2 – VIP 7G Desktop Portal Environment

Please note that an Oracle client is NOT required for the VIP 7G environment.

1. Launch "VIP 7 - Upgrade Install"
This app object has several VIP upgrades bundled together and will run the needed installers.
By default it will create a "VIP 7G Launch" icon on the desktop that the user needs to run to access VIP.

Installation Instructions for Windows XP/7 and Zenworks 11.2

Step 1 – VIP 6G Client Server Environment

If your users will be operating only within the VIP 7G environment then you can skip this step.  As the VIP 6G install is optional and the Zenworks 11.2 environment is still under development currently there is no support for the VIP 6G environment under Zenworks 11.2.  I.S.T. will be looking at providing support later in 2012.  Please contact the Integration Support team at ist-cns-integration@lists.umanitoba.ca if your users need assistance.

Step 2 – VIP 7G Desktop Portal Environment

Please note that an Oracle client is NOT required for the VIP 7G environment.

1. Launch "VIP 7G Full Install"
This app object has several VIP upgrades bundled together and will run the needed installers.
By default it will create a "VIP 7G Launch" icon on the desktop that the user needs to run to access VIP.
