You can manually deploy agents to a virtual machine using Remote Desktop Connection.

Requirements for manual agent deployment

  • Agent-initiated communication: The poller must have a public IP address which is visible from the node with the agent installed. Port 17778 must be open on the poller.
  • Server-initiated communication: The node with the agent installed must have a public IP address. Port 17790 must be open.

You can manually deploy the agent in one of two ways:

Install through the command prompt

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click Agent Settings > Download Agent Software.
  3. Click Windows, and click Next.
  4. Click Mass Deploy to Multiple Machines, and click Next.
  5. Download the MSI and MST files.
  6. Run a command prompt as administrator from the context menu.
  7. Enter the following command:

    msiexec /i "SolarWinds-Agent.msi" TRANSFORMS="SolarWinds-Agent.mst"

Deploy the agent manually using the interactive wizard

Follow the instructions in Deploy the agent manually to a Windows computer.
