Rotabull integrates with Pentagon 2000. See below for setup instructions.
Check your Windows version
Rotabull supports the following versions of Windows on the machine where you are installing the Rotabull Windows Service (a
+symbol represents the minimum version):
- Windows Server: 2008 R2 SP1 + (x64, x86 architectures)
- Windows Client: 7 SP1 +, 8.1 (x64, x86 architectures)
- Windows 10 Client: Version 1607 + (x64, x86 architectures)
Use an administrator account on the machine the Rotabull Windows Service will be
installed on (either the Pentagon server or a machine with persistent access to it).
Download the installation package at: https://app.rotabull.com/install.
Open the archive and run the
.msifile to install the deployment system ("Octopus"). When the installer window comes up, close out of it. The purpose of the installer window is to configure Octopus, which we do via a script in the next step instead.
rotabullDeployment.batin the same archive as an administrator to configure
Octopus to point to Rotabull servers.
Send a message to the Rotabull team that the steps have been completed. Please include the following information as well:
- The local name of the computer the service was installed on
- The Company DB information (this can be found in My Pentagon > My Settings > Check DB Connection)
It may take several hours (and up to a day) for Rotabull to complete the Pentagon setup after you have finished step 5, and begin to see inventory in Rotabull.
To function correctly, the RWS must be able to make a request to

https://app.rotabull.com over port
