NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager 5.9


I previously used a third party application to deploy the Windows Agent with the .msi. 
How do I deploy the windows agent with the .msi using a third part application?
Where do I obtain the .msi package to deploy the windows agent? 
I previously installed my windows agents with the Secure Configuration Manager deployment wizard, can i upgrade using the .msi file?


The .msi package is included in the Secure Configuration Manager(SCM) 5.9 download.  Located in the extracted file set in the Intel\Deployment\Agent directory.  Use the NetIQSecurityAgentforWindows.msi file with your third party application to deploy.
Upgrading to SCM 5.9 allows you to use this .msi package to upgrade no matter how the previous supported version was installed.  The new installer for SCM 5.9 can be used with the .msi or the deployer within the SCM console.


Previous versions of SCM were restricted to only support the console deployment or the .msi deployment respectively.  The .msi file previously was only available directly from technical support.
