TITLE: HP PC Session Allocation Manager VERSION: 2.0.0 Rev. B DESCRIPTION: This software package contains the HP PC Session Allocation Manager (SAM) installation files for the supported blade PC models and operating systems. HP SAM serves as the control point for managing desktop session allocations within a Consolidated Client Infrastructure (CCI) deployment. Specifically, HP SAM manages the assignment of Microsoft Remote Desktop and HP Remote Graphics Software connections from a user's access device (client) to a remote computing resource (blade PC). HP SAM 2.0.0 supersedes previous 1.x.x versions. You should upgrade to this version as soon as your schedule allows.

PREREQUISITES: - Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 must be installed on the HP SAM Web server. Download this software from the Microsoft Web site and install it on the HP SAM Web server prior to installing HP SAM 2.0. If you get an error message relating to the .NET Framework 1.1 when you access the HP SAM Administrator Console, the HP SAM Web site was not configured to operate with .NET Framework 2.0. To fix this issue: 1. Run the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. 2. Right-click the SAM Web site. 3. Select Properties. 4. Click the ASP.NET tab. 5. Select 2.0.50727 in the ASP.NET version list. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Download the EXE file to a directory on your hard drive. 2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. INSTALLATION NOTES: - Do not install HP SAM 2.0.0 if you have less than 1 GB of memory (which is below the HP SAM requirement) on the HP SAM Web server. - If you want to keep the HP SAM Web and SQL database installed on the same server, do not clear SAM Web site from the list during the installation of version 2.0.0. Doing so will uninstall the HP SAM Web site from the server. - HP SAM 2.0.0 is compatible with previous HP SAM 1.x.x releases. You can mix between 2.0.0 and 1.x.x for the HP SAM client, blade service, and Web server. When doing so, the environment steps down to the 1.x.x level features in order to maintain compatibility. To fully take advantage of all the available features, upgrade all HP SAM components to the same 2.0.0 version. The recommended order of upgrade is: 1. HP SAM Web/SQL server 2. HP SAM blade service 3. HP SAM client - If you are upgrading from SAM 1.x to SAM 2.0, make sure to follow the instructions in "HP SAM 2.0 Readme.htm" file.
