Is a reboot of the Windows machine required after a silent install of the Centrify Agent for Windows including DirectAudit? Does the install work without the reboot?
Applies to: All Versions of Centrify Agent for Windows
Can a silent install of the Centrify Agent for Windows be done on the command line using msiexec with the /norestart flag so that the software install would not force the Windows machine to reboot after the install completes? Are there any side effects from not rebooting?
The agent, common components and DirectAudit can all be installed with the msiexec /norestart flag. But the Window Agent functionality, such as MFA, Run with Privilege, or Privileged Desktop, will not work until the reboot occurs. A reboot is required to make the agent fully functional.
See KB-4618 for more information on a the silent installation.
