MySabre Migration / Installation Guide 1. Introduction The MySabreTM Installation process has been automated to provide you with a smooth installation and migration to Sabre Travel Network’s new desktop platform. This document was created to provide you with a comprehensive set of instructions to reference when installing or migrating to MySabre.

2. Before Installing Verify the following: You have an Internet connection. The workstation(s) meets or exceeds the MySabre minimum requirements that are found in Appendix A of this document. You have a valid Sabre® system Sign-in, Password and Psuedo City Code. If not contact your manager or Sabre Travel Network representative. Your browser must be Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 or higher. You have a valid Sabre system Workstation Address or LNIATA. If not contact your manager or Sabre Travel Network representative.

Important Notice for Sabre eVoya WebTop agents: We are unable to automatically transfer the Sabre system workstation address or LNIATA from eVoya® Webtop to MySabre due to issues with browser cookies. You or your installer will have to manually configure the MySabre desktop with your LNIATA. If you do not know your LNIATA, you can obtain this information from your eVoya Webtop desktop through the Options tool. You may want to write this information down so that you can use at the end of the MySabre installation.

3. Installation Before installing or migrating to MySabre, it is suggested that you close down any open applications. Note: Sabre eVoya Webtop customers must exit the eVoya portal and shut down the browser before starting the MySabre installation.

If your browser is not Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher a message will be displayed informing you of this. If your browser has met the minimum requirements, proceed to the next step. •

Workstations with Windows 98 and above will be directed to the Microsoft download site for an updated browser.

Workstations with Windows 95 will be directed to a Sabre Travel Network download site for an Internet Explorer 5.5 download.

Once the browser has been downloaded and installed, the workstation will be required to be re-started. Return to to continue the installation. (Step 1) 3.9.

Page 3 Revised April 15, 2004

If all items Pass, proceed to the next step.

If all items Fail and have “ActiveX Failure” in the “Your System” column, this is due to the browser not being able to run the ActiveX plug-in. Directions on how to enable the ActiveX plug-in are located in appendix B. Once this has been resolved, return to this step.

If the Video Resolution is the only item that failed, this is probably due to the workstation’s current video resolution setting and can be corrected very easily. Directions for changing the resolution are located in appendix C. Once resolved, return to step 9.

If there are any other hardware components that do not meet the minimum requirements, the installation can not continue. −

If your hardware is supplied and maintained by Sabre Travel Network, a message will be sent to the Installation Operations team and they will contact you within ten business days.

If your hardware is not supplied by Sabre Travel Network, please contact your provider for assistance and possible upgrades. Once your hardware meets the minimum requirements, please return to to install MySabre.
