- Inside the App, create a new Software Agent. In the Installation Instructions window, select Windows 10 and write down the Agent ID.
- Download and execute the Installation Wizard (link above).
- Enter the Agent ID found in the App during the installation process.
That's it. Once installed, the agent will start and will update itself automatically when needed.
Start / Stop / Restart the Obkio Agent
The Windows Obkio Agent will install as a Windows Service and will start automatically when the computer starts. To manually start / stop / restart the agent, open the Task Manager, select the Services tab and right click on ObkioAgentService.
The Windows Agent is the first one to introduce an auto-uninstaller. When the agent is deleted in the App, it is automatically uninstalled from the host in the next hour.
You can also uninstall the agent from the Add/Remove Programs windows application or you can run the file ObkioAgentUninstall.exe that is located in the installation directory. By default, it is
C:\Program Files\Obkio Agent\.
The Windows Obkio Agent does not support:
- TCP and UDP Traceroutes
- TOS and DSCP Settings
- APM Web Features
Silent Installation and Mass Deployment
To silently install the agent on one computer with an Agent ID:
ObkioAgentInstall.exe /S /AGENTID=<agentID>
To silently install the agent on many computers, you can use a Deployment Profile. Right now the Deployment Profile is only available through our support team. Once you have your Deployment Key, you can execute the installer:
ObkioAgentInstall.exe /S /DEPLOYMENTKEY=<deploymentKey>
Once installed, all the agent settings can be changed. Changing a setting in the Deployment Profile will not change it on the agent previously installed with the profile.
