Setting up the evaluation environment

This section describes how to prepare for an evaluation of Centrify Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service on a Windows computer. It includes instructions for installing authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services components and the Centrify agent for Windows to enable a full evaluation of access control, privilege management, and auditing on Windows computers.

Installing and configuring authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services requires about a half hour. If you need to install Microsoft SQL Server Express with Advanced Features, which is also included in the package, add another 10 to 15 minutes to the setup.
