Troubleshoot Issue During AWDMS Setup Tool

Friday, July 29, 2022 TimeTec 0 Comments



Introduction
During the installation of AWDMS, it is required to run the AWDMS setup tool once the AWDMS installation is completed. This setup tool will create a database for AWDMS which is located on your MySQL Server.
However, there will be several errors which you might find when running the setup tools. The following will explain which error you should ignore and which you will need to solve before the installation is completed.
 
Steps
1.       During the configuration of AWDMS setup tools, it is advised to run the following query in any 3rd party MySQL database management software. Normally we will advise using SQLyog Community for 3rd party MySQL database management software. You may download the installer from the following links and install it on your workstation.
 
SQLyog Community Edition - 13.1.5 (64-Bit): https://s3.amazonaws.com/SQLyog_Community/SQLyog+13.1.5/SQLyog-13.1.5-0.x64Community.exe
SQLyog Community Edition - 13.1.5 (32-Bit): https://s3.amazonaws.com/SQLyog_Community/SQLyog+13.1.5/SQLyog-13.1.5-0.x86Community.exe

Run the following query in your SQLyog: GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON AWDMS.* TO 'ingress'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'ingress';


2.       Some cases will face the following error when running the AWDMS setup tools.


 
Please note that this is due to the Windows Server/Windows PC set-up. Please make sure to update Windows to the latest version and install all the necessary updates required for Windows Server/Windows PC. You may also check your Windows Server/Windows PC date and time settings and make sure that Windows is using a normal date and time setting. To check this, go to the control panel > click clock and region > click change date, time, or number formats > refer to screenshot. If the issue persists then we advise you to reformat your Windows or install it on another workstation and make sure to not configure Windows with any security or access privilege so the installation proceeds accordingly.

Friday, July 29, 2022 TimeTec 0 Comments



Introduction 
In previous technical tips, (refer to links below) we have explained how to configure your email (Gmail account) settings and allow it to send messages from the Report Scheduler feature in Ingress and TCMS V3 software.
https://www.fingertectips.com/2018/07/tcms-v3ingress-how-to-utilize-gmail-in.html
Recently, Google no longer supports the use of third-party apps or devices to help keep your account secure as of May 30, 2022. Thus, we are no longer able to use Gmail as an SMTP server by using the old steps from the link above as the Less Secure Apps feature has been disabled from Google. Even though the enforcement option has been removed, you can still allow the software to send Emails by referring to the steps below.
 
Steps
1. Please go to https://myaccount.google.com/ > Choose Security

2. Go to Signing in to Google > App Passwords

3. Please verify your Gmail Account

4. Then, Select app > Mail & Select device > Windows Computer and Click Generate

5. Then, it will generate a password

6. Next, you can copy the generated password above and paste it as your SMTP Password in the software. Once the email has been configured, click on Test Account Setting and Save. Finally, you can configure the Report Scheduler setting and send the email through your Gmail account.
