Manual Agent Installation

  • Last Modified: 2019-04-10

Note: agents should be installed on remote servers, and are not required to be installed on the Otter or BuildMaster server itself.

Note: the agent version you download MUST be the same version as the Otter or BuildMaster software. Do not attempt to install a newer agent version, or the software will report errors when attempting to connect to the agent. Older agents (provided the major version number is the same) will automatically be upgraded to the same version as the BuildMaster software.

  1. Download the Otter manual installation package.
  2. Extract the Otter-Agent.zip file from the archive, then extract the files from Otter-Agent.zip to the directory where you want to install the agent (for example, C:\Otter\Agent).
  3. Edit the InedoAgentService.exe.config file and change the value of the Otter.RootPath configuration item to a directory where the Otter Agent will be allowed to write files (example, C:\Otter\AgentData).
  4. Open a command prompt window as Administrator in the directory where the Otter agent was extracted and type InedoAgentServer.exe install
  5. Start the service by typing sc \\localhost start INEDOAGENTSVC
  6. That's it! You'll also want to make sure port 46336 is open in your firewall. Currently the port is not configurable, but it will be in a future version.
  7. By default, the agent is installed to run as Local System, giving it full access to the machine. If you do not want to give it full control, you may change the service account to something more suitable in the services.msc dialog.
