Installing the Lionbridge Connector

Important: Before installing the Connector, back up the inRiver PIM databases.

To install the Connector:
  1. Use SQL Server's installation package to restore the database backups.

The Connector uses the following databases to store translation data:

Database Description
Lionbridge.Pim.Adapter stores information about translation information
Lionbridge.Pim.Adapter.Job stores information about the scheduled jobs that send and receive information from the Clay Tablet Platform

Note: You cannot use the Clay Tablet account with additional databases, since Clay Tablet communication is message based.

  1. Use IIS to create a website that to host the Connector administration features.
  2. Open Internet Information Manager (IIS) Manager.
  3. Right-click Sites and select Add Website from the context menu.
  4. In the Add Website dialog box, configure the website. Assign a name, and point it to the web site provided in the connector installation package. Add a hostname if needed.

Click OK.

  1. If the website does not start, then under Manage Website, click Start.
  2. Apply the correct permissions for the website .
  3. Under Browse Website, and click Browse to verify that the website is started and running.

Important: Make a note of the URL of the server. You will use this to configure the inRiver server.
