The following process describes how to install the FireScope agent on any 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2003 Server. Desktop operating systems are not supported.
1. Download the FireScope Windows Agent by:
- Logging into FireScope with Administrative privileges.
- Navigate to Administration->Data Retention & Misc.
- Using the drop down box at the top right of the screen, select Agents Admin. You will see a list of the agents that match your current version of FireScope Unify. Please note, as FireScope Unify is updated, newer agents will be downloaded and added to this list.
2. The FireScope Windows agent is delivered as an executable. To start the installation process, double-click the executable.

4. Now, you will be prompted to select which components to install. The FireScope Agent should already be checked, click Next to continue.
5. The configuration screen now asks for the FireScope server that will be managing this server, you can use either the IP address or the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). The Hostname should be pre-filled with the host name of this server, and does not need the FQDN. Check Enable Remote Commands if you wish to allow FireScope to perform automated tasks on this server (e.g. restart services on failure or execute scripts based on specific events that you specify within FireScope). Click Next after filling in this form.
6. Now select the destination folder that the FireScope Agent will be installed to. The default option is C:\Program Files\FireScope Agent. Click next to begin the installation process.
7. Once the installation process is complete, you will see the following screen. During the installation process, the FireScope Windows Agent creates a service called FireScope Agent, which is automatically started at the end of the installation and is configured to automatically start on system boot, using Local System for login credentials. These settings can be modified in the Services administrative tool. Click close to finish the installation.
