Run the setup program on a Windows computer

You can install Centrify software using the setup program on the CD or included in the download package. The setup program copies the necessary files to the local Windows computer. There are no special permissions required to run the setup program other than permission to install files on the local computer. From the setup program, you can choose which components of you want to install.

Note:   If you intend to install the Zone Provisioning Agent using the setup program, you should review the requirements and other information in Installing Zone Provisioning Agent before you proceed, but you can skip the standalone installation instructions in those sections. Use the individual setup programs for components if you want to install a specific component on a specific computer. For example, use the Centrify_Zpa‑version‑win64.exe program to selectively install Zone Provisioning Agent components on a computer where Access Manager is not installed.

To install Centrify Authentication & Privilege on Windows:

  1. Log on to the Windows computer and insert the CD or navigate to the directory where you downloaded Centrify files.

    If the Getting Started page is not automatically displayed, double-click the autorun.exe program to start the installation of the Centrify software.

  2. On the Getting Started page, click Authentication & Privilege to start the setup program for identity and privilege management components.

    If any programs must be updated before installing, the setup program displays the updates required and allows you to install them. For example, you might be prompted to install or update the Microsoft .NET Framework or Microsoft SQL Server Compact edition.

  3. At the Welcome page, click Next.
  4. Review the terms of the license agreement, click I agree to these terms, then click Next.
  5. Type your name and organization, then click Next.
  6. Expand and select the Centrify Administration and Centrify Utilities components you want to install, then click Next.

    If you are managing access to Linux, UNIX, and Mac OS X computers, you should select the following Centrify Administration components for deployment:

    • ADUC property page extensions if you want to include Centrify profiles when displaying properties in Active Directory Users and Computers.
    • Access Manager if you want to use an administrative console to manage Centrify zones and roles.
    • Group Policy Management Editor extension if you want to deploy Centrify group policies.

    You should also select the following Centrify Utilities components for deployment:

    • Zone Provisioning Agent if you want to automatically provision user and group profiles into zones.

    If you want to skip the installation of any component on the local computer, click to deselect the item that you want to skip, then click Next. For example, if you want to skip installation of the Centrify Reporting Service and its Microsoft SQL Server database, deselect the Centrify Reporting Service option, then click Next.

  7. Accept the default location for installing components, or click Browse to select a different location, then click Next.
  8. Review the components you have selected, then click Next.

    The setup program begins installing the selected components.

  9. When setup is complete for the selected packages, click Finish to close the setup program.

    Depending on the components you selected, you might see options to configure reporting service, the Zone Provisioning Agent, or both. You can deselect these options if you want to skip configuration or plan to install the components in a different computer. For details about configuring the Centrify reporting service, see the Report Administrator’s Guide. For details about configuring the Zone Provisioning Agent after installing it with the Centrify setup program, see Configure the Zone Provisioning Agent.
