Installing eZ Agent on a Computer

Installing eZ Agent on a Computer

You can install eZ Agent on individual computers or on multiple computers using the Active Directory GPO feature.

If you have an earlier version of eZ Agent installed, Zscaler recommends that you uninstall it before installing a new version. For information on uninstalling eZ Agent, see Uninstalling eZ Agent.

You can use either the eZ Agent Setup Wizard or the Silent.bat file to install eZ Agent on a computer. Use the wizard to customize the installation settings or to update the settings of an existing installation. The Silent.bat file automatically installs the agent on your computer without presenting any options.

Using the Installation Wizard

To use the eZ Agent Setup Wizard:

  1. On your computer, navigate to the eZsetup.msi file and double-click it.
  2. Click Next when the Welcome dialog appears.
  3. Select I accept the terms in the License Agreement when the End User License Agreement appears.
  4. In the Custom Setup window, select where the eZ Agent binaries and configuration file are saved. By default, both files are saved on your hard drive.

  1. Click Install to begin the installation.
  2. Click Finish after the installation is completed.

The eZ Agent icon appears in the system tray. See Using the eZ Agent Icon in Using eZ Agent on a Computer.

Installing eZ Agent Automatically

To use the Silent_Setup.bat file to automatically install eZ Agent on an individual computer:

  1. Open the Windows command prompt and navigate to the eZ Agent folder.
  2. Run the Silent_Setup.bat file as Administrator. This .bat file runs the eZSetup file and loads your custom config.dat file settings.

The eZ Agent icon appears in the system tray after it is installed. If you reinstalled eZ Agent on a computer, you are prompted to restart your computer after the installation.
