Installation → Installing Servers and Agents → Agent Installation
You must install at least one agent for a basic installation of Deployment Automation. You can install agents on supported operating systems using an interactive installer, a silent installer, console installation mode, or manual installation steps.
Multiple Agents on Multiple Machines
If you plan to run deployments on several machines, a separate agent with a unique name should be installed on each machine. If, for example, your testing environment consists of three machines, install an agent on each one. Follow the same procedure for each environment the application uses.
Multiple Agents on One Machine
If you plan to install multiple agents on a single machine, make sure that all names are unique: installation directory name, agent name, and service name, if running the agent as a service.
Installing Agents Remotely
For UNIX environments, you can install agents remotely through the user interface. See Installing Agents Remotely.
Agents are upgraded through the user interface. See Upgrading Agents.
The following topics lead you through an agent installation.
