Performing the silent installation of an App Visibility agent for .NET

Install the App Visibility agents for .NET to monitor applications installed on Internet Information Services (IIS) servers. You can perform a silent installation, as described in this topic, or use the installation wizard .

This topic describes how to install the App Visibility agent for .NET in silent mode and presents the following content:

Before you begin

Before you install the App Visibility agent for .NET, ensure that your environment meets the following requirements:


If the required system settings for the default .NET profiler are assigned to another product, installing App Visibility agent for .NET disables that product.

To install the App Visibility agent for .NET silently

  1. Copy and extract the files to a temporary directory on the target computer so that the agent-silent-options-windows.txt file is in the same folder as setup.exe.

  2. Open the agent-silent-options-windows.txt file in a text editor.
  3. Enter the destination directory where the agent for .NET will be installed.
    The default value is C:\Program Files (x86)\BMC Software\App Visibility\Agent for .NET.
  4. Enter or modify the values for the following agent configuration parameters:

    -J ApplicationServerDisplayName=
    -J PortalServer=
    -J PortalPort=

    The agent configuration parameters are described in the following table: 

    Agent configuration parameters




    Host name, which is displayed in the TrueSight console as the application server’s display name. The default name used is the DNS host name.


    Host name or IP address of the computer on which the App Visibility portal is installed

    If a load balancing server manages access to the portal, enter the host name or IP address of the load balancer.


    Portal HTTPS port

    If a load balancing server manages access to the portal, enter the port number of the load balancer.

  5. If your environment requires the agent to use a proxy when communicating with the portal and collector, enter connection details:



    Proxy server details are required only if you are using a web proxy server or load balancing server. This server is not the same server as the App Visibility proxy, which is used to collect end-user browser data.

    Description of proxy server values




    Web proxy server host for outbound connections. The default is blank, which means that no web proxy is used.


    Web proxy server port for outbound connections

  6. In a command line, run the following command:

    setup.exe -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="<Full-File-Path>\agent-silent-options-windows.txt"

    Specify the full path for the agent-silent-options-windows.txt file.

  7. When the installation process is complete, restart IIS.
