Install an Agent using MSI (in Command Prompt)

Atera Agents can also be installed using an MSI package installer via the Command Line Prompt.


To install:

1. From the drop-down menu at the top of the screen, select Agent Installer > Download MSI. The MSI file will download to your computer.



2. Search for the Command Prompt. Right-click and select Run as Administrator.



3. Enter the following command.

An example of the Agent Installer command for a specific customer will look like this:


msiexec /I [File_Path] /qn INTEGRATORLOGIN="" COMPANYID=""

i.e: msiexec /I c:\Setup.msi /qn INTEGRATORLOGIN=xxx@yyy.zzz COMPANYID=6


The Integratorlogin value refers to the email address used to register the Atera account.

The company ID is the digit in the URL address of the specific customer within the Atera platform as highlighted in the screenshot below.




An agent installer command without defining a specific customer will look like this:

msiexec /I Setup.msi /qn INTEGRATORLOGIN=xxx@yyy.zzz

Note that if you do not define a customer name, then the customer will appear under the category Customers > Undefined.
