The Atera agent is the backbone of the Atera monitoring system and needs to be installed on all computers and servers you wish to monitor. The agent can easily be downloaded from the platform and installed by simply clicking it to run the setup. Alternatively, it can be installed via the Command Prompt.
To install the Atera agent via Command Prompt:
1. First Download the agent.
2. Copy the 'Install via Command Prompt' link on the Summary page of the agent installer.
3. Open the Command Prompt. Right-click and select Run as Administrator.
4. Enter the command.
If you downloaded a customer-specific agent installer, the agent will automatically be assigned to the customer. Otherwise, the agent will appear within the Devices view as 'Unassigned', where you can manually assign it to the customer.
