Hi I was wondering how we disable Authentication for Agent Installation

It shows as greyed out in commcell, I am aware this feature offers extra protection I would just like to disable it whilst we install multiple servers.

Hi @Nate90,

As part if improving the out of the box security, this option was recently enabled by default. You can revert the ability to turn it off using some command line utilities:

  1. To run these qcommands, you need to login first: https://documentation.commvault.com/2022e/expert/45203_qlogin.html
  2. Traverse to the cv base installation folder, and bring up an admin command line prompt. > qlogin - then enter any master level userID. If it's a domain account, you can use domain\username
  3. Run your command: > qoperation execscript -sn SetKeyIntoGlobalParamTbl.sql -si "Secure Agent Install" -si y -si 0
  4. When you're done, logout: > qlogout -all

You should not need a restart of the CommServe services, but if it does not work that would be the next thing to try.
