Running the Windows Servicing Suite Installer

The easiest way to install the 1E Windows Servicing Suite in a new environment where no 1E products have been implemented is to use the Windows Servicing Suite Installer (WSS Installer).

You can choose the features you want and it will install the products in the correct order on either a single server or on distributed servers according to requirements defined in the wizard. It also executes the 1E Client Deployment Assistant that creates Packages and Applications in Configuration Manager that can be used to deploy the 1E Client to client workstations.

The Windows Servicing Suite Installer does not currently support upgrading existing installations. Each component product of the suite must be upgraded individually following the documented upgrade process for that particular product. See upgrading from previous Windows Servicing Suite releases for further details.

Installing products individually

In an environment where one or more 1E products are already installed, it may be necessary to install the additional products individually using their respective installers. The following specifies the order in which the 1E products should be installed if the Solution Installer is not used. Refer to the specific product documentation for details on how to install each product.

  1. ActiveEfficiency (required for peer-to-peer and self-service features). The ActiveEfficiency Scout must also be installed for the self-service feature.
  2. 1E Catalog (required for the Application Migration feature).
  3. SLA Platform (required for the Application Migration feature).
  4. NightWatchman Management Center (required for the wake peers for content feature).
  5. WakeUp Server (required for Wake-on-LAN feature).
  6. Shopping (required for the self-service feature).
  7. Application Migration including Task Sequence Tools (required for the Application Migration feature).
  8. Nomad (required for the content distribution and peer-to-peer features).
  9. PXE Everywhere (required for peer-based PXE feature)
  10. BIOS To UEFI (required for the BIOS to UEFI feature)

When the 1E products have been installed, use the 1E Client Deployment Assistant which creates Packages and/or Applications in Configuration Manager that can be used to deploy the 1E Client to client workstations.
