User ID agent or agent less?

Hello

 

What is recommended approach to configure User-ID, agent or agentless? My scenario is, I have two centralized DC in HQ and there are 22 remote sites having two local DC each.

Also in case of agent approach, what is the best practice, where to install the agent?

Re: User ID agent or agent less?

Hi Kashif,

 

Using a UserID Agent setup will offload a lot of processing from the firewall (in case you use Agentless),hence you may want to use UserID agent instead of Agentless.

 

Regarding installing the Agent, it is recommended to NOT install it on the DC itself,you can install it on other windows based machines in the domain.Refer to the following DOC for UserID agent tips :

Hope this helps !
