In order to speed up our customer's operation process in the installation and instrumentalization of java processes in Windows, we need to elaborate installation step-by-step manuals as easy as we can.
One thing that we need to know in order to achieve that, is if this step could be replaced:
My doubt comes by this question: does installation using the wizard does more things than just create the folder?
The wizard from the Add Tier in the client just walks you through the steps needed to add an agent into the system. If you already have an agent installed on that system you can use the old directory instead of re-installing a new agent version, if you do this you can skip the first few pages in the wizard as it is just ensuring you are installing the correct agent. The main thing that I like the Add Tier wizard is that it will pre-configure sensor packs for the relevant JVM.
As per the below statement, the agent installation should be done on each host instead of copy/pasting from the other.
The actual bootstrap and core Agent parts are installed to
DT_HOME/agent/lib and updates to the core are in
DT_HOME/agent/downloads/<version>. Shared memory and
.ini files are in
DT_HOME/log is common to all components, which is one reason that it is important to keep the
DT_HOME folder structure and permissions.
