You can install the Provisioning Agent as a standalone service on a computer with a relatively light load. The computer where you install the Provisioning Agent should be one that is online at all times. If the computer is shut down or suspended, the Provisioning Agent service will be suspended and no provisioning can occur. You can install a second instance of the Zone Provisioning Agent on another computer, and use your existing method of determining if a service has failed to monitor the availability of the first instance. For example, configure monitoring of the Windows Event log to notify you if the Zone Provisioning Agent service stops.
If you install the Provisioning Agent service as a standalone service, you should also install the Command Line Utility on the same computer.
To install the Zone Provisioning Agent as a standalone service:
- Log on to the Windows computer that has a light load and is rarely shut down or offline.
- Double-click the Centrify_Zpa‑version‑win64.exe file to start the Zone Provisioning Agent setup program.
If a User Account Control message is displayed, click Yes.
If necessary, the setup program prompts you to install the Centrify Common Components.
- On the Welcome screen, click Next.
- Accept the licensing agreement, then click Next.
- Select the Provisioning Agent and Command Line Utility features, then click Next.
- Click Next to accept the default location for the Zone Provisioning Agent files, or click Browse to select a different location, then click Next.
- Click Install to begin installation.
(Optional) Uncheck the Configure and start Zone Provisioning Agent option, then click Finish.
If you leave Configure and start Zone Provisioning Agent selected, you are prompted to provide the service account name and password, then click Start to start the agent service. Centrify recommends that you configure the monitored containers, polling interval, and logging options, in addition to the service account name and password before starting the service. Therefore, you should open Access Manager to set up the Centrify organization structure in Active Directory. For more information about the initial configuration, see Running Access Manager for the first time.
