We have created a new installation bundle for the Starfish Engine.
StarfishETL uses a SOAP interface that is dependent on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). Starfish requires IIS to be configured and additional folder security permissions be set. Previously users were required to configure IIS manually and set the appropriate folder security permissions. This process was somewhat complex and prone to issues.
We recognized that a lot of issues that our customers were seeing were related to this installation so we set about creating a more robust installation package that would remove the risk of installation failure by removing these manual setup requirements.
The version of StarfishETL that is available for download from our website now uses this new installation bundle.
Users need to install IIS on the machine that is running the Starfish Engine but the new installation bundle handles all the IIS configuration automatically.
