The BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent installation utility requires the following configuration on the Windows host computer:

To configure the required Terminal Server options

To enable running the installation wizard through a Terminal Services connection or a remote desktop session, certain Terminal Server configuration options that pertain to temporary folders must be configured.

  1. On the host computer, open the Local Group Policy Editor by selecting Start > Run and typing gpedit.msc.
  2. Expand the following folder: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Temporary folders.
  3. Double-click the following options to set each to Enabled:
    • Do not delete temp folder upon exit
    • Do not use temporary folders per session
  4. Restart the computer.

If you try to run the installation utility and again see the notification about Terminal Server configuration, backup the registry and then adjust the following key:

  1. On the host computer, open the Registry Editor by selecting Start > Run and typing regedit.
  2. Expand the following folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server.
  3. Set the value for PerSessionTempDir and DeleteTempDirsOnExit to 0.
  4. Restart the computer.

You can revert these changes after you complete the installation process. You might be required to reboot the computer.

  2. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Advanced tab, and then click the Settings button under Performance.
  3. On the Data Execution Prevention tab, select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select.
