    • On Windows Systems:
      • You have to modify the directory permissions for the above .\logs and .\service directories if you extracted the Agent to e.g. C:\Program Files.
        • This step is not required if you extract the Agent e.g. to C:\ProgamData.
        • Start a command prompt with elevated administrative rights and execute e.g.

          Code Block
          titleAllow full acces for "Users" on .\service and .\logs directories
          cd "path\to\installation-directory"
          icacls "service" /L /grant *S-1-5-32-545:(OI)(CI)F
          icacls "logs" /L /grant *S-1-5-32-545:(OI)(CI)F 
    • If more than one run-time instance of an Agent starting from the same Agent installation is used then every instance has to use its individual ./var_<http-port of the instance> data directory, e.g. ./var_4445, ./var_4447 etc. as each Agent instance has to use an individual port when operated on the same server.
