Installing vFabric tc Server

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.

Note

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.
