Commerce Server 2007 Configuration Wizard

Use the Configuration Wizard to enter the user accounts and the corresponding passwords for the Commerce Server 2009 Administration database, Direct Mailer Service and database, and Commerce Server Staging. You can also use the Configuration Wizard to configure the Reporting Service for Commerce Server Staging.


In SQL Server Enterprise Manager, make sure that SQL Server is running before you start the Configuration Wizard. The icon in the Enterprise Manager window displays a green light when SQL server is running. If it is not running, right-click the computer name, and then click Start. In addition, in order to configure the Commerce Server Staging Reporting Service, you must have enabled ASP on the computer that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) by using Internet Services Manager.

In multi-server deployments, SQL Server may be on a different computer than where Commerce Server 2009 is installed. In these cases, you should make sure that the remote computer that you are configuring for the Administration database or the Direct Mailer database has a running version of SQL Server.

Besides the Configuration Wizard pages that require user input to select or specify Commerce Server 2009 settings, the Configuration Wizard automatically performs the following operations:

  • Creates and sets up the following COM+ applications (for some COM+ applications, 32- and 64-bit versions are created on 64-bit systems):

    • Commerce Server 2009 Config (for the Administration API)

    • Commerce Server 2009 List Manager (for handling marketing lists)

    • Commerce Server 2009 Catalog Import Host (for handling catalog import and export)

    • Commerce Server 2009 Orders (for running the Commerce Server 2009 pipelines and orders transactions)

    • Commerce Server 2009 Promocode Generator (for generating promotion codes)

  • Sets up Commerce Server 2009 performance counters

  • Sets up the Widgets virtual directory (for the Commerce Server 2009 Profiles System schema administration)
