Install Recast Agent for Endpoint Insights

Installing Endpoint Insights creates a Configuration Manager application for Recast Agent. Using a Recast Agent with Endpoint Insights creates additional hardware inventory classes on each machine. The extra classes populate related Endpoint Insights reports. 

That same Recast Agent can be used with other Recast Software applications and components, including Right Click Tools, Privilege Manager, and Application Manager. To learn more, see the Recast Agent Overview.


To install the Recast Agent application for Endpoint Insights:

1. Open the Configuration Manager console.

2. Navigate to Software Library > Application Management > Applications. A RecastAgent application will be created.

3. Deploy the Agent as you would any other application.

NOTE: Recast Agents will take time to deploy and report their data back to the ConfigMgr database. By default, the hardware inventory cycle can take up to 7 days. Shortening the time to install and increasing the frequency of reporting back to ConfigMgr can shorten this time significantly.

Silent Install for Agent without Recast Management Server

If you are not connecting Recast Agents to Recast Management Server, use the LICENSEPATH= parameter to specify the license file to use for your Agent installation. This option will install the Full Agent on a device. 


msiexec.exe /i "Recast Agent.msi" /qn LICENSEPATH=".\License\<their.license>"

NOTE: The license path can be a relative or full path.
