Migrating Host Protection for Windows Server and Desktop Protection agents to another SiteProtector

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you move your Host Protection for Windows Server and Desktop Protection Agents to another SiteProtector or Agent Manager?

Answer

Host Protection for Windows Server and Desktop Protection Agents migration steps:

  1. View Active Deployments policies for your agent. You can do this by right-clicking on the Agent icon and choosing Manage Policy...



  2. Open the Active Group Settings policy.

  3. Select the Agent Manager List tab and simply change the Agent Manager Host Name field to the new IP address or host name of the new Agent Manager you would like the Agent to report to.


Note: If the new Agent Manager is part of a different or new SiteProtector environment, the Host IPS Agent will register into the new SiteProtector automatically on the next heartbeat (within one hour by default).
