I'm trying to install the trial version of InDesign Server 2017 so that my team can show we need the licensed version. The dev server I'm trying to install InDesign Server on is configured so that it doesn't allow internet connections. This will also be true of the test and prod servers for security reasons.
The installer I've found so far fails with a Return Code of 1 on the server. In digging further I've found a description of a "Type1Exception" processes, but it asks for a serial number and I haven't been able to find a serial number for the trial version.
Does anyone have suggestions or advise to get the software installed?
a moderator moved your question to the Adobe InDesign Server Developers sub-forum.
You'll get more answers here than in the Adobe InDesign forum where you posted initially.
If you are trying to install Indesign server with a trial adobe ID, you will not need any serial number instead you can license the product using a PRTK tool (APTEE) . Just follow the commands mentioned in InDesign Help | InDesign CC Server 2015 Release Notes . i am in the engineering team at adobe who looks into it. Try the commands on a terminal if you are using a mac or on a command prompt if you are working on the windows machine.
Hope that resolves your query.
