Enabling Client Registration Codes:

Using a Registration Code:

  • NOTE: Installing the Agent with a missing or invalid Registration Code will require manually applying the Registration Code before the Agent is allowed to connect.
  • Installing an Agent with the registration code:
    msiexec.exe /i "PolicyInstaller.msi" B9_REGISTRATION_CODE=RegistrationCodeHere /qn /norestart /L*v "C:\Temp\AgentInstall.log"
  • Manually entering a Registration Code after installation:
    cd c:\program files(x86)bit9\parity agent
    dascli password GlobalPassword dascli register code RegistrationCodeHere
