To install an agent on Windows 2008 Cluster, see Install an agent on Windows 2008 Cluster.

  1. Execute the install file, typically Storage_Manager_Agent-Windows-xxx-nnn.exe (where xxx is the architecture and nnn the version).
  2. You are prompted for the install directory. Accept the default (recommended) or select a different one.
  3. Accept the license agreement.
  4. You are prompted for the following (fresh install only):
    • Server Address: Type the IP Address of the server where the SRM Profiler server is running
    • Server Trap Port: Type the port the SRM Profiler server is listening for incoming traps. The default port, 162, is recommended.
    • Agent Web Port: Type the port to be used for communication between the server and the agent. The default port, 4319, is recommended.

If you plan to use the SRM Profiler agent as a proxy for NAS (Network Attached Storage) file analysis, you must manually configure the login account of the Agent service. Use an account with the right privileges to view/read the NAS shares. If you are upgrading and have configured the login previously, you must configure the login again after the install.

  1. Leave the Start Services for SRM Profiler agent checkbox activated, if you want to start the agent service immediately. If you choose not to start the service, then you must manually start it later.
  2. For a fresh install, the agent should self-register and self-configure on the SRM Profiler server
  3. Configure your agent from the SRM Profiler server's console by clicking on the Device Configuration icon, which leads you to the configuration page for that resource.
