Limited support: Unattended installation of the Native Monitoring Point (NMP) is currently only available for Windows Server 2003 32-bit.

For very large deployments, a script is available that enables unattended installation of the NMP. The installation process does the following:

  • installs the NMP software in the Windows Program Files directory
  • adds a Windows firewall rule to permit the NMP to accept connections
  • starts the NMP (sequencer) service and connects to APM

To initiate the unattended installation:

  1. Navigate to > Manage Monitoring Points.
  2. Click Add Monitoring Points.
  3. Click Windows.
  4. Download the Windows version of the NMP.
  5. Extract the files from the downloaded .exe file to a temporary location (for example, use 7-zip).
  6. Copy the “install.cmd” file to the directory containing the extracted files.
  7. Execute the “install.cmd” script from the command-line.
    • The installation begins.
