System Requirements

See the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server System Requirements web page for a detailed description of the system requirements for TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3.

Installation and Configuration

Read the Installation and Configuration Manual on how to install and configure TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3.

Important note: The 3.3.3 version of TIBCO® Spotfire® Server is a maintenance release. If you already have version 3.3.0, 3.3.1, or 3.3.2 installed you should not install version 3.3.3. Instead you should apply the latest 3.3 patches available at the TIBCO® Spotfire® support site and download the latest documentation from the TIBCO Spotfire Technology Network.

Main steps:

  1. Run the supplied SQL scripts to generate the new 3.3.3 database, unless you intend to upgrade a previous 3.x installation.
  2. Install TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3.
  3. After installing the server, please register the product on the http://support.spotfire.com/dsregister/ web page.
  4. If you intend to migrate from a TIBCO® Spotfire® Analytics 10.1 server to a TIBCO® Spotfire® 3.3.3 server, the recommended procedure is to complete the migration of data and configuration before starting the 3.3.3 server, see Migration from TIBCO® Spotfire® Analytics Server 10.1.
  5. Start the server and launch the TIBCO® Spotfire® Configuration Console to perform the Server configuration. Note that the URL for the Configuration Console has changed from http://server:port/admin in version 3.0, to http://server:port/config in later versions.

Migration from TIBCO® Spotfire® Analytics Server 10.1

You must install TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 according to steps 1 through 3 above before you can do the migration.

It is very important that you read the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 Migration Manual.

  1. Install the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 Migration Tool.
  2. Shut down the TIBCO® Spotfire® Analytics Server 10.1.
  3. Run the migration tool on the TIBCO® Spotfire® Analytics Server 10.1.

Upgrade from a Previous TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.x

During TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 installation you can choose to upgrade from a previously existing TIBCO® Spotfire® 3.x installation.

It is very important that you read the Upgrade section in the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 Installation and Configuration Manual.

  1. Shut down the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.x.
  2. At the end of the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server 3.3.3 installation, choose to perform an upgrade.
  3. Perform the upgrade according to the TIBCO® Spotfire® Server Installation Manual.
  4. If the Composite JDBC driver has been deployed on the 3.x server, it will be automatically moved to the 3.3.3 server during upgrade. We recommend that you always upgrade to the latest version of the Composite JDBC driver.
