A system administrator typically installs the agents on the vRealize Automation server that hosts the active Manager Service component.

If an agent is installed on another host, the network configuration must allow communication between the agent and Manager Services installation machine.

Each agent is installed under a unique name in its own directory, Agents\agentname, under the vRealize Automation installation directory (typically Program Files(x86)\VMware\vCAC), with its configuration stored in the file VRMAgent.exe.config in that directory.
