CSA Install Agent Kit

Unanswered Question
Apr 15th, 2009

Hi all

I have a question. I need install 1500 agent kits in office, but the domain policy allows the installation of software just from administrator. If I try "Run as" some kits I can install, but some not. How to solve this problem? I have not found this problem in guide.

I have this problem too.

Once you build an agent kit on CSA MC, you deliver the generated URL, via email for example, to end users so that they can download and install the Cisco Security Agent. They access the URL to download and then install the kit. This is the recommended method of agent kit distribution. But you may also point users to a URL for the CSA MC system. This URL will allow them to see all kits that are available. That URL is:


If you are pointing users to the "kits" URL and you have multiple agent kits listed here, be sure to tell users which kits to download.

Are you running a solution with 1500 machines, and no automated installer solution like Altiris or SMS and the likes ?

I believe it still requires Administrator priveleges to install the agent kits no matter how it's delivered.

That's why you need to either impersonate a privileged user or get a distribution tool.

Did you restart PC? You create your kit? In which groups you have included your kit?

when you create agent kit, you should associate him with group Desktops (default group in CSA)
