Installing the Centrify Agent for Windows interactively using the setup program

The procedure in this section describes how to use the agent installation wizard to install the agent on a Windows computer. After the agent is installed, you will enable the agent to use one or more services that you installed earlier on the main administrative computer as described in Installing authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services and updating Active Directory.

To install the agent on Windows using the setup program:

  1. Insert the Centrify distribution CD into the computer on which you wish to install the agent or browse to the location where you have saved downloaded Centrify files.
  2. On the Getting Started page, click Agent to start the setup program for the agent.

    If the Getting Started page is not displayed, open the autorun.exe file to start the installation of Centrify software.

  3. If a previous version of the agent is installed, click Yes when prompted to upgrade the Centrify Agent for Windows.

  4. At the Welcome page, click Next.

  5. Review the terms of the license agreement, click I accept the terms in the License Agreement, then click Next.

  6. Accept the default location for installing components, or click Change to select a different location, then click Next.

  7. In the Ready to install Centrify Agent for Windows page, click Install.

  8. Click Finish to complete the installation and start the agent configuration panel.

    Go to Configuring the agent for details about using the agent configuration panel to enable Centrify services and configure how the agent interacts with those services.
