Installing Agents




Q: When installing agents using MSI, it does not appear automatically. How do I add agents manually?

A: This is an expected scenario when using the MSI Installer package on Windows. The recommended agent deployment method is to use deployment scripts for installing agents. These contain the default policy and tenant details required for this registration step.


Follow these steps:


1. From the Trend Portal go to Administration > Software > Local and click Generate Deployment Scripts.


2. Select the Operating System, Security Policy and Computer Group to create a script to automatically install and register agents to the correct policy and tenant.


3. Although not the recommended approach, the agent can be manually added to the tenant through the Portal after installation. Go to Computers and select Add Computer.  

Q: My agent has installed but isn't updating. It appears red in the Portal dashboard. 

A: Check the policy being used by the computer and ensure that the communication in the settings is set to:


Agent/Appliance Initiated Policies, <Choose policy>, Details, Settings, General, Communication Direction.
