Installing the eG VM Agent

Users have multiple options to choose from when it comes to installing the eG VM Agent. These options have been discussed below:

  • Manually install the eG VM Agent on every Windows VM using the executable that eG Enterprise provides;
  • Bundle the eG VM Agent as part of a template VM, and use this template to create multiple VMs; this way, the eG VM Agent is automatically available in all the VMs that are created using the template;
  • Use a software distribution solution such as Microsoft System Center to distribute the eG VM Agent software to existing VMs from a central location;
  • Connect to each Windows VM and silently install the eG VM Agent on it, without using the executable that eG Enterprise provides.

The first and fourth installation options alone are discussed here. For the third option, refer to the Installing eG VM Agent Using SCCM document.
