Setting up and using agents consists of the following general steps:

1

Create and Configure an Agent Policy

An agent policy defines exactly what an agent can or cannot do. With Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers Agent you can create as many different agent policies as is needed. This provides a great deal of flexibility, enabling you to assign different agent policies to different machines in your organization. A policy can be used to scan for missing patches, to determine software and hardware assets, and to perform power state tasks.

See Creating a New Agent Policy for complete information.

Install the Agent Policy On the Desired Machines

Agents can be push-installed from the console to the desired target machines, or they can be installed manually.

 

3

 

Monitor the Agents as They Protect Your Machines

You can monitor the agents from the console or you can use the Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers Agent client program to perform additional actions directly on the agent machine.
