How to Install the Atera RMM Agent on Hyper-V Server 2012 R2



  • The Atera RMM agent requires the .Net 3X feature be installed on any computer that you want to run it on. This is generally a pretty simple task for a Windows machine with a GUI.

    Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 has no GUI though, so everything needs done from the command line.

    To enable .Net you use DISM in online mode. If you have media readily available, you can do it in offline mode also, but I never have media still connected to my hypervisors after setup.

    DISM /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /all
    

    Once that is done, you can copy the normal executable to the machine and install from the GUI because it will pop up, yes, even on Hyper-V server.

    And here it is in Atera.

    Did you put that in just for me?



  • @JaredBusch said in How to Install the Atera RMM Agent on Hyper-V Server 2012 R2:

    DISM /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /all
    

    i do this all the time on Windows 10, except I include the /source:location of files since it's not on my WSUS system.
