Installing Application Migration

Application Migration 3.1 is installed through Tachyon Platform 5.2 setup. The Select Configuration section of Tachyon setup allows you to choose whether to install AppClarity.

For full details of how to setup Tachyon, please refer to Tachyon 5.2 - Tachyon Setup.

On this page:

Select configuration

This screen lets you choose between installing all the Tachyon Server components onto a single server or selecting the components you want to install individually.

The options in the Select configuration list are:

  • All components on a single server (default) - all components required for Tachyon Master and Response Stacks
  • Tachyon Master Stack - all Tachyon systems require one Master Stack
  • Tachyon Response Stack - this is required for Real-time features of Tachyon
  • DMZ Server - this is required to provide Real-time features to Internet-facing clients
  • Business Intelligence - this is required for Patch Success

This screen automatically selects "DMZ Server" when installing a DMZ Server, and you have provided an ini file in the Setup folder that has the same name as the server hostname. For more detail, please refer to Implementing a Tachyon DMZ Server.

Optional components

When you select All components on a single server, or Tachyon Master Stack, you can also select optional components:

  • Experience - if you want to use the Tachyon Experience application from 1E
  • Nomad - if you want to monitor Nomad in your environment, and install Content Distribution to support Nomad features such as Single-Site Download and Pre-cache
  • Business Intelligence - required for Patch Success
  • AppClarity
  • Application Migration
A component is included in this list because its installer .msi file has been detected by Setup in its Installers folder. A component is automatically enabled if its feature is enabled in the License File.

Setup will also automatically install additional applications it detects in its Installers\Apps folder, which includes apps that do not have their own installers, such as Explorer, Guaranteed State, Inventory, and Patch Success. After installation, these apps are visible in the Tachyon Portal if its consumer is enabled in the License File. The Settings app is always available.

Custom configuration

A custom configuration can be made available where you can select the Tachyon components you wish to install on the server. For guidance please contact 1E.

The Tachyon Setup wizard supports the fully configured installation of Tachyon components onto a single server, with optional remote databases.

While you can select to install individual components in isolation, in practice additional configuration will be needed to get those components working together. So, before selecting the custom configuration option, you should contact 1E in order to get an overall picture of the complete custom installation and configuration process.

One particular custom configuration is to install Tachyon to use an existing 1E Catalog server, for example if you have an existing deployment of 1E Windows Self-Service (WSS) solution. Although in this instance you should be aware that SLA Platform cannot be shared between Tachyon and WSS.

Please review Design Considerations to determine your Tachyon system architecture and decide which configuration to select.

You can also change the folder you wish to install to.

After selecting the installation options you want, click Next.

Relicensing Application Migration

Licensing of Application Migration version 3.0 and later is handled through Tachyon. You will no longer need to license Application Migration using the installer. Please refer to the Tachyon 5.2 - License information page for details about Tachyon license requirements for Tachyon applications.

Installing the 1E Task Sequence tools

The 1E Task Sequence Tools installer extends the Configuration Manager Task Sequence Editor, adding the Application Migration step that can be added to OS deployment task sequences. This step executes during the OS deployment, calling an Application Migration API that returns a list of Configuration Manager Applications and Programs to be installed on the computer being deployed.

Install the 1E Task Sequence Tools on the following systems:

  • The Configuration Manager Primary Site server. In a multi-site hierarchy, install it on the CAS and each primary site.
  • If any site has one or more remote SMS Providers, install it on each remote SMS Provider server
  • Any remote Configuration Manager console systems that are used to edit task sequences.
Version 2.5.300 of the 1E Task Sequence tools installer is included in the Windows Serving Suite 4.1 download zip, and in its own download zip, which can be downloaded from the 1E Support Portal.

To install the 1E Task Sequence Tools:

  1. Start a command prompt with elevated rights and run the following command-line from the location the installer was downloaded:

    msiexec /i 1ETaskSequenceTools.msi /l*v C:\Temp\TSTools-Install.log
  2. On the Welcome screen, click Next.
  3. On the License Agreement screen, accept the terms of the agreement and click Next.
  4. On the Ready to Install screen, click Next.
  5. On the Completion screen, click Finish.

Reviewing 1E Task Sequence Tools installation 

To review your Task Sequence Tools installation:
