Agent system tray icon

An agent icon in the system tray allows you to enable, disable, or display the status of the agent installed on the current server.

Whenever an agent is not active, a status indicator will appear in the lower left corner of this icon to represent its current status:

You can load the agent system tray icon using one of the following methods:

Click Advanced Options on the Deployment page to launch the Advanced Deployment Options dialog. From this dialog, select the Yes option for the Launch ServiceStatusTray on startup setting.
NOTE: By default, the Do not change option is selected which indicates that you want to use the current setting for the agent system tray icon. That is, if you already have it set to launch on startup it will continue to operate that way. Similarly, it will not launch on startup if this is a clean install and you have not previously set it up to do so.

By right-clicking on the agent system tray icon, a context menu is displayed which consists of the following commands:

Agent Status

Displays the Change Auditor Agent Status dialog which assists you in determining if the agent is running, what version is installed, and how active the agent is. See Change Auditor Agent Status dialog for a full description of this status dialog.

Enable/Disable Agent

Starts or stops the agent service.

Find More Connections / Retry Connections

Looks for more coordinators in a forest than the agent automatically found.

When the agent is connected to a coordinator that is not currently running, use the Retry Connections command to reattempt to connect to a coordinator.

Refresh Configuration

Applies a new agent configuration to the selected agent.

Coordinator Credential Configurator

Use to enter the credentials of the agent that can be used to find and connect to a coordinator in an Active Directory forest.

View Agent Log

Opens the log viewer to review the events recorded in the Change Auditor agent log (ChangeAuditor.AgentLog.nptlog).

For example: %ProgramFiles%\Quest\ChangeAuditor\Agent\Logs\ChangeAuditor.AgentLog.nptlog

Load on startup

Automatically loads the system tray application when the agent service starts.


Displays information about the agent including the installed version number and licensing information.


Closes the system tray application.
