You can install an Endpoint Operations Management agent on a Windows platform from a .zip file.

By default, during installation, the setup process prompts you to provide configuration values. You can automate this process by specifying the values in the agent properties file. If the installer detects values in the properties file, it applies those values. Subsequent deployments also use the values specified in the agent properties file.


  • Verify that you have sufficient privileges to deploy a Endpoint Operations Management agent. You must have vRealize Operations Manager user credentials that include a role that allows you to install Endpoint Operations Management agents. See Roles and Privileges in vRealize Operations Manager.

  • Verify that the installation directory for the Endpoint Operations Management agent does not contain a vRealize Hyperic agent installation.

  • Verify that you do not have any Endpoint Operations Management or vRealize Hyperic agent installed on your environment before running the agent Windows installer.


  1. Download and extract the Endpoint Operations Management agent installation .zip file that is appropriate for your Windows operating system.
