Advanced installation uses the installation wizard to install Metalogix Archive Manager for Files and associated features on dedicated servers as described in the Deployment Plan. The installation wizard guides you through the installation of each feature on the various servers. In addition to the installation of the features, the installer wizard also helps you to verify, install and set up the prerequisites and accounts that you would have to do manually to prepare the environments for the installations.
