Secure Agent installation on Windows

On Windows, the Secure Agent runs as a Windows service. When you install the Secure Agent, you also install the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent Manager.
By default, the Secure Agent starts when you start Windows. You can stop and restart the Secure Agent using the Secure Agent Manager or Windows Services. If you install the Secure Agent on a different volume than you use to run the installation program, you must start and stop the Secure Agent from Windows Services.
You can also use the Secure Agent Manager to check the Secure Agent status and configure proxy information.
You can launch the Secure Agent Manager from the Start menu or desktop icon. When you close the Secure Agent Manager, it minimizes to the Windows taskbar notification area for quick access.
When you install a Secure Agent, you perform the following tasks:
  1. Verify that the machine where you install the Secure Agent meets the minimum requirements.
  2. Download the Secure Agent installer files.
  3. Install and register the Secure Agent.
