How to install IBM Director ?

I have a task to setup IBM Director v 5,20 on a network running around 20 IBM servers.

I have been told that the reason i should use the v5,20 instead of a newer, is because of some compatibility issues on the IBM Xseries 346 server.

There is supposed to be 1 server, and the rest is clients/agents.

The IBM Director Server is installed on a management server, running windows 2003 enterprise.
After installing the server program, and rebooting into windows again, the service : "IBM Director Server Service" won´t start. In the notification area i have a green triancle, instead of a green circle.
I get no errors in the event viewer.
I have not tried to continue with installing agents, since i thought the server should run as a first.

No you need to install one of the agents on at least one of the other "managed" servers.  The reason is, the IBM software has to find a "client" server in order for the management server to authenticate it is in control.
