KB-9093: Can the Centrify Agent for Windows be Silently Installed and Joined to a Zone Without Rebooting the Windows Machine?

Centrify DirectControl ,  

28 August,17 at 02:07 PM

Applies to:  All Versions of Centrify Agent for Windows

Question:
  
​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?
 
Answer:
  
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.
