Is a TEM client required to be installed on the TEM server machine?

Technote (troubleshooting)


TEM Client installation required on TEM Server

Resolving the problem

Yes, for a fully and properly working deployment a TEM client (agent) is required to be installed on the TEM server machine.

Many settings to manage the functionality of the various server's processes and product extensions are stored as client settings or require the client process to perform a necessary activity. If the TEM client is not installed on the TEM server machine then these processes and activities may not work.

Another advantage of having the client installed on the server machine is that the server machine can itself can be managed via TEM settings and actions for the purpose of configuring and patching.
