Download and Install RMM Agent

Generate New Build

First, make sure you have the latest RMM Agent version available for installation. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Management Console.
  2. Select Downloads.
  3. Open RMM tab.

  1. Find the RMM Agent that suits your operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux). In case there is no generated builds, click Generate after the build you are going to install. Wait while the build will be generated for you. By default, the public build is suggested to be installed. You can see the newest version of the product and can make it public by Make Public button. As soon as the newest version becomes public it will be available for all users. In case you already have generated builds and Enable Sandbox option for the download panel is enabled, you can add the newest version to your sandbox to test it before to make it public. To add the newest version to sandbox, click Make Sandbox button.

Note that if a target computer has the Backup Agent installed, you can install the RMM Agent straight from Management Console. To do this, click Install in the RMM column on the Remote Management page
