This section shows you how to run the 1E Nomad Branch Admin Extensions installer.
All users require the following permissions to install and use the 1E Nomad Branch Admin Extensions:
Preparation in Tachyon required to support Nomad Download Pause
The Nomad Download Pause feature requires Tachyon to be installed with some manual configuration steps to create a Nomad consumer, upload some Tachyon instructions and configure permissions to allow CM administrators to execute them. These steps should be completed by a user that has Global Admin role in Tachyon.
The animation displayed opposite shows an installation account ACME\CMAdmin01, confirmation of permissions in Configuration Manager, configuration of its permissions in Tachyon, and the installation of the 1E Nomad Branch Admin Extensions. The steps to take are described in the following headings:
To perform a successful installation the full Configuration Manager administrator account must be added to Tachyon and have the following roles set:
To configure Tachyon permissions:
The following steps describe how to run the 1E Nomad Branch Admin Extensions installer. See also Installing the Configuration Manager console extensions.
The Configuration Manager console must not be running when the 1E Nomad Branch Admin Extensions installer is run.
The Tachyon API is Tachyon's Consumer API. You can learn more about Tachyon in Tachyon 5.1 documentation.
It is good practice to confirm the installation of the Nomad Download Pause components in both Tachyon and Configuration Manager. The animation opposite illustrates the process described in the following headings:
A 1E Nomad instruction set exists, and contains two instructions:
Resume the paused Nomad job queue
On the Roles tab check that the Nomad Admins role has been created with Actioner permissions on the 1E Nomad set
Click on the Management Groups tab, and click on the Add button. Select All Devices in the Add management group popup, and then click Add.
If other management groups are selected instead then members of this role can only use the instructions on devices belonging to those management groups.
On the Users tab check that all Configuration Manager users and groups that have the "Full Administrator" role have been added to Tachyon as users.
You may remove users if you know they do not require Tachyon permissions. However they will be re-added the next time the installer is run and the installation account has permissions to add users.
You may add additional users and groups manually.
Select each of the added Configuration Manager users in turn and check that they have the Nomad Admins role added
These permissions ensure all current "Full Administrators" are able to use the Nomad Download Pause feature by allowing them to execute the Tachyon instructions. Any other users or groups will need to be manually added to the Nomad Admins role.
If all these checks have passed you should have a working installation of the Nomad Download Pause feature.
The Nomad Download Pause feature can be applied to a collection of devices. To do this:
When a collection has been successfully paused an entry will appear on the Monitoring 1E Nomad, Paused Collections page, as shown in the picture opposite.
From here you can view the following information:
|Collection Id||The Configuration Manager ID for the device collection|
|Collection||The friendly name of the device collection|
The current paused status for the collection. The values in this column can show one of two states:
|Remaining Time||This column shows the time remaining for the pause to be in effect. After the stated time the devices in the collection will automatically resume their Nomad job queues.|
From this page you can also select to resume the paused collection by clicking on the Resume button or by selecting the Resume menu item from the collection's right-click context menu.
As soon as the Nomad job queue for the entire collection has been resumed the entry will disappear from the Monitoring 1E Nomad, Paused Collections page.
You can also check the progress of the pause process by looking at the instruction history in Tachyon:
If you want to resume the Nomad downloads for a collection at any time during the 24 hours, you can
As soon as the Nomad job queue for the collection has been resumed the paused collection entry will also disappear from the Monitoring 1E Nomad, Paused Collections page.
You can check the progress of the resume process by looking at the instruction history in Tachyon:
A typical error that may occur during the pause or resume process is if any of the devices in the selected collection do not have Tachyon Agents or 1E Clients installed. To rectify this install the Tachyon Agent or 1E Client on all devices in the collection.
