            LanSchool Connection Service server requirements and installation

            Problem: What are the requirements for the LanSchool Connection Service and how to install the LanSchool Connection Service.


            Prerequisite(s):
            • LanSchool Installation media
            • Windows OS Server


            Solution(s):


            You can find this information in the LanSchool manual here : https://www.lenovosoftware.com/support/lanschool/documentation


            LanSchool Connection Service cannot be installed with any other LanSchool Software, Tech Console, Teacher or Student.


            Teacher and Tech Consoles can only support ONE Connection Server at any given time.


            The LanSchool Connection Server does NOT broadcast out to the Internet.

            • Dedicated machine or virtual machine that is always up and running 
            • 64-bit Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2016 or higher

            • Optional: LanSchool AD Secure mode is supported 

            To support 10,000 users 
            • Dedicated machine or virtual machine that is always up and running 
            • 64-bit Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 or higher 
            • Static IP Address 
            • 16GB+ RAM 
            • 1GB Ethernet network adapter connected to a gigabit port on a switch 
            • Requires port UDP 796 (teacher communication) port 8080 (communication) and 8085 (Status) to be open 
            • Optional: LanSchool AD Secure mode is supported

            LanSchool Connection Service Setup:
            1. In File Explorer, go to the LanSchool product download location
            2. Double-click the LCS.msi in the Windows\ConnectionServer folder.
            3. Click Next.
            4. Read the license agreement that appears, then click I Accept, then Next.
            5. Setup the LanSchool Secure mode if you plan on using it.
            6. Click Install.
            7. Click Finish to complete the installation.
            8. Once the installation finishes a new LanSchool Connection Service Status shortcut was added to the start menu. Run the LanSchool Connection Service Status shortcut to view the server state.

            Note: If during the installation you receive a 1603 error, this is related to the automatic creation of a nightly task to restart the LCS service (in Windows Services).  To resolve this issue, use the command line property RESTARTLCS=FALSE to disable the creation of the task.

             

            Example command:

            C:\Users\Lenovo\LCS.msi RESTARTLCS=FALSE
