- Agent / Installer Package - You need to download and open the server agent/package. If you want to know how to download it, refer to this article.
Step 1 - Download the installer (sensor).
Open the downloaded file and run the installer for your platform. When prompted, accept the end-user license agreement and click “INSTALL”.
Step 2: Confirm that the installer (sensor) is running.
Unlike legacy endpoint security products, Falcon does not have a user interface on the endpoint. There are no icons in the Windows System Tray or on any status or menu bars.
From the windows command prompt, run the following command to ensure that “STATE” is “RUNNING”: $ sc query csagent
Once you run the command, you will see a window pop-up to allow the Falcon Sensor to make changes to the system. Select Yes to allow the Falcon Sensor to complete the installation.
Once the installer (sensor) install completes, you can check to validate that the installer (sensor) deployed by using the SC query csagent command at the command prompt. You will notice that the agent state shows a stopped state. This is expected due to the NO_START=1 flag used in the sensor install command. This allows a new unique AID to be generated per WorkSpace that is created from the image.
