Select Tools | Access Explorer Configuration.
Click Configure Access Explorer.
Open the Manage Computers tab.
Click New Managed Computer, and select Cluster.
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.
For remote agents, you must enable the Immediately scan on agent restart or scope change option if you want the agent service to scan immediately when it is added. This option is cleared by default.
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. For information on adding an agent to the cluster, see Adding an agent to a remotely-managed computer.
