Where to install CAAgileCentralConnectorforTFS2017WorkItemsInstall?

I need to sync TFS 2017 and Rally per Microsoft TFS for Work Items Installation & User Guide | CA Agile Central Help  instruction, is the instruction for installation in the Team Foundation Server or should it be installed in the local machine (developer's laptop)?  Just want a confirmation.  Thank you in advance.


Installation For Windows

Double-click the CAAgileCentralConnectorforTFS2017WorkItemsInstall-4.7.3-master-17.exe to open the install wizard. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

The Windows installer will install the following files (by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\CAAgile CentralConnectorforTFS2017WorkItems):

  • ca_agile_central2_tfs_connector.exe: Executable to run the connector
  • tfs_config.xml: Sample configuration file
  • WinTail.exe*: Utility to tail the log file output for debugging purposes
  • starttfs.bat: Batch file that automatically runs the connector and shows the log file; useful for testing

*WinTail is a free text file tail utility for Windows, generously made available by Bare Metal Software Pty Ltd. for redistribution without restriction. We have found it to be far superior to Notepad and other text editors for watching log files in real time as they are updated by the connector.
