Running the Avalanche Installer

The Avalanche installer is designed to include all components of the service, including the Web Console, device servers, Certificate Manager, and Remote Control server. This installer allows you to create all services on the same computer through one installation process. If you want to install the device servers on separate computers, see Installing Device Servers.

Avalanche installs its own JRE and changes the JRE_HOME system variable. If you have a JRE already installed, it is not affected by Avalanche. However, any program using the JRE_HOME variable will be redirected to use the Avalanche JRE.

Do not install Avalanche 6.2 on any machines currently running LANDESK Management Suite or Mobility Manager. This will prevent integration between applications.
