Installing an eG Agent on the Manager System in a SaaS Deployment

By default, the eG agent on a manager system will operate as an external/remote agent for the target environment. In a SaaS deployment of eG Enterprise, follow the procedure discussed below to install an eG agent on a manager system:

  1. Soon after you install and configure the eG manager, login to the eG management console as the default user admin with password admin.
  2. Figure 1 will then appear displaying a message stating that no agents have been uploaded to the manager yet. Follow the steps below to upload eG agent installables to the manager:

    • Login to the system hosting the eG manager.
    • From a browser, connect to the URL: https://www.eginnovations.com/eval712/AgentPackages
    • In this location, you will find a set of zip files. Each zip file is an agent package that corresponds to every operating system on which an eG agent can be installed.
    • Download the agent packages / zip files that correspond to the eG manager host.
    • Copy the downloaded packages to the <EG_MANAGER_INSTALL_DIR>\agents\Universal\Latest folder.

  6. After successful installation, reboot the agent host.
  7. If you then log back into the eG management console, you will view a message to this effect (see Figure 4).
