Next, you will download the agent installer. You will want to download this to the machine where you will be installing the agent. System requirements are outlined on the page, so confirm that the machine where you will be installing is able to host the agent.

Searching Agents

If you have enough agents, you can search them from the list of agents. Navigate to Password Server -> Agents and click on the filter menu in the upper right. This will open the filter bar where you can filter by the agent status or enter an agent name, or part of an agent name and filter the list.

Editing Agents

Since the agents are installed on other machines, the only things you can edit from Password Server are the name and status of the agents. To edit, navigate to Password Server -> Agents, find the agent you want to edit, and select Edit from the menu on the right.mceclip1.png

Once you have clicked Edit, the agent information will open on a new screen. Click Edit and update any information and click Save Changes.
