Checklist for SnapStream Setup

There are a few things that you will want to do to make sure that Enterprise TV 6 will run well on your network.  Please see below.

Static IP

Make sure that you have a Static IP available for the server to use.  If you have more than one server to be used in a cluster, make sure that you have a Static IP for each SnapStream Node.


Make sure that you get a DNS record setup for each SnapStream Node on your network.

LDAP Integration (Optional)

If you plan on using LDAP integration, each SnapStream Node should be joined to your domain.  

You will also need to have a domain user account available for our software to run as.  This domain user will need to have a password that never expires and must have the rights to query the LDAP server.

Windows Update Policies

We suggest that each SnapStream Node NOT be set to install windows updates automatically.  This will cause the SnapStream Nodes to automatically reboot on occasion, and we don't want your important recordings to be unexpectedly interrupted.  Please keep this in mind if you have any policies on your domain that would force this setting on the SnapStream nodes, and consider making exceptions for them.

NOTE:  Windows updates are still a good thing, we just suggest that you make plans to implement them so that they don't cause unexpected interruptions in your recording schedule.

Anti-Virus Exceptions

If you plan on installing anti-virus software on the SnapStream Servers, make sure that the necessary anti-virus exceptions have been made.  Those anti-virus exceptions can be found here:  Antivirus Exceptions for SnapStream

Network Communications

Setup any external firewall exceptions so that the SnapStream servers have access to the necessary communications for our software to work.  That information is detailed here: Network Configuration for SnapStream

Client systems will need to have local firewall exceptions in place to allow communications to all nodes in the cluster via ports 80, 443, 9190, and 9999.  This is what will allow the webplayer to work.
