Installing the Access Explorer agent remotely

Install the Access Explorer agent remotely when you cannot install the agent on the computer you want to manage. You can install the agent on more than one remote server, so you can have several different servers collecting security information on the same computer.

Remote installation of the Access Explorer Agent is available for:

Windows Servers

1
Navigate to Access Explorer Management | Manage Computers.
2
Click New Managed Computer and choose Windows Server.
3
Choose Remotely Managed and click Next.
7
Click Browse to select a server (Agent Computer) on which to install the Access Explorer agent.
NOTE: When selecting to Run On An Interval, it is possible to choose a frequency such that the agent is still busy completing the last scan when the next scan should start. In this case, the scan that could not start on time will be skipped and the next scan will be started as normal.
10
For remote agents, you must enable the Immediately scan on agent restart or scope change option if you want the agent to scan immediately when it is added. This option is cleared by default.
11
Click Finish.
As the agent is installed, the status changes to reflect the progress of the installation. When the Status column is OK the agent is installed. When the initial scan is complete, the Data State column displays Data Available.
