Installing Storage Servers

Installing a storage server allows you to use Media Shuttle to transfer content to on-premises storage. Each storage server should be installed on a different computer.

You can download the Media Shuttle Storage Server software from your Account Administration Console.

After installation, you can assign a storage server to a portal.

An upgrade of your on-premises storage may require that you uninistall and reinstall a storage server.

To download the Media Shuttle Storage Server software:

  1. Log into your Account Administration Console.
  2. Click on the Storage tab.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Read and agree to the terms of the license agreement.
  5. Click Windows or Linux to download the software.
  6. Copy the storage server registration key.

The registration key authenticates your server to your account. A unique registration key is required for each storage server installation.

Note: Media Shuttle upgrades do not require a new key.

To run the installer:


  1. In your terminal, untar the storage server package: tar zxvf Install_Signiant_Media_Shuttle_v2.9.0.tar.gz.
  2. Run the installer: ./ -registration-key=<registration_key>.

Note: If you do not include your registration key when installing a storage server, you must uninstall your storage server and reinstall with the registration key provided.

For a silent install, use ./ -help to provide feedback with the supported arguments:

./ -s -registration-key=<registration_key>


  1. Run the installer and follow the prompts.
  2. Enter the registration key you copied from the Account Administration Console.
  3. Click Register storage server. The new storage server will appear in the server list in the console.

After installation, assign your storage server to a portal to allow it to send and receive file transfers.

Registering a Storage Server After Installation

For your storage server to be registered, port 8080 must be open during installation. If the port is unavailable, the installation will still complete. You can then open port 8080 temporarily to complete registration.

To register your storage server after installation:


In your terminal, run curl -vv --data installKey=<registration_key>.


  1. Click the Configure Media Shuttle Storage Server link on your desktop.
  2. Enter your registration key.

Uninstalling a Storage Server

When upgrading your on-premises storage you may need to uninstall and reinstall your storage server.

To uninstall a storage server:


From the command line, run sudo /usr/Signiant_Media_Shuttle/bin/siguninstall.


  1. From the Start Menu, click Settings.
  2. Click System, then Apps & features.
  3. Choose Signiant Media Shuttle from the list.
  4. Click Uninstall.

To reinstall a storage server, complete the installation procedure again using a new registration key.
