vFabric tc Server has several options for installation and setup. Installation options vary according to the tc Server edition you choose; whether you install tc Server standalone or as part of vFabric Suite installation; and whether your operating system is Linux or another supported platform. Installation also varies according to whether you are installing tc Server for the first time or are upgrading from a previous version.
If you have already installed a previous version of tc Server; have created one or more tc Runtime instances; and now want to upgrade all components to the latest version, see Upgrade and Migration Guide.
If you will be installing vFabric tc Server as part of a vFabric Suite Standard package, complete the procedures for installing vFabric License Server and activating vFabric Suite licenses in Getting Started with vFabric Suite.
