You can install an End Point Operations Management agent on a Windows machine using silent or very silent installation.

Silent and very silent installations are performed from a command line interface using a setup installer executable file.

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

Use the following parameters to set up the installation process. For more information about these parameters, see Specify the End Point Operations Management Agent Setup Properties.

Caution:

The parameters that you specify for the Windows installer are passed to the agent configuration without validation. If you provide an incorrect IP address or user credentials, the End Point Operations Management agent cannot start.
