Working on a new ES install. Does the ES search head need the app and add-on for each technology or just the add-on? Does it matter if the app and add-on are both installed?
ES doesn't exist without the app so it must be installed. As part of the installation process, you will be asked to choose the add-ons you need.

I went through the install and I don't remember a step asking me about choosing add-ons. Fresh install of ES 6.4.
As of ES 6.2, almost all of the add-ons have been removed from the installer:
