Installing the Active Directory Agent on a Client Computer - Windows

You can install the Active Directory Agent using either the CommCell Console or the installation package that is created by the Download Manager.

Before You Begin


  1. Choose one of the following installation methods:

  2. Install the Active Directory package, which is under the Application category.


  • If the File System Agent is not installed on the computer, the File System Core and File System packages are automatically installed with the package that you select. The File System Agent does not consume a license. To gather the required information for the File System Agent, see "Gather Installation Data" in Preinstallation Checklist for the Windows File System Agent.

  • If the File System Agent, or another package, is already installed on the computer, you are not required to gather all the computer details again. The level of detail that you need depends on how the package that you select is installed:

    • For installations using the CommCell Console, the installation program requests only the name of the client computer.

    • For installations using the installation package, the installation program reads the details from the previous installation.

What to Do Next

  • Review the tasks that you must perform after the installation in Postinstallation Tasks for Clients.

  • To perform the required agent configurations, refer to the Getting Started page of each agent that you installed.
