Installing the CCS Agent on Windows

The CCS Agent collects data from target computers and forwards the data to the CCS Manager.

See the following sections before installing the CCS Manager:

Install the CCS Manager. You require a CCS Manager for the CCS Agent to register to. However, you cannot install a CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager.

Do one of the following:


You cannot install a stand-alone CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager, because the CCS Manager installation also contains the installation of CCS Agent.

Do the following to install the CCS Agent:

To launch the Installation Wizard

  1. Insert the Symantec Control Compliance Suite 11.0 product disc into the drive on your computer and double-click Setup.exe.

    In the security warning dialog box, click Run.

  2. In the DemoShield, click CCS Agent.

    On the splash screen, click Install CCS Agent.

  3. The Setup files for installing CCS Agents on various platforms are located inside the CCS_Agent folder of the product media.

    If you want to install the application modules while installing the CCS Agent, you must copy the CCS_Agent\win folder on the local computer. Then create a folder "AppModules" at the level of the SU folder, and copy the platform specific application module from the CCS_Agent\MBC\AppModules folder to the local computer in the following folder structure:

    \\....AppModules\<Application module name>\<Platform folder>\<appmoduleinstaller.exe>

    For example, to install application modules for Oracle, create a folder structure as follows:


    The installer installs this application module while installing the agent.

  4. In the CCS_Agent\win folder, double-click Setup.exe.
