Yesterday I covered the new CustomScript extension for the VM Agent and in today’s post we’ll continue on the VM Agent topic. The VM Agent was introduced a few weeks ago with support to install it when deploying a new machine. But you’ve probably been thinking, what about my old machines? Last week during Build, Madhan Arumugam (Lead Program Manager) announced the availability of the manual installer for the VM Agent on the MSDN Forum: VM Agent and VM Extensions – Feedback, Issues, Questions. In this post we’ll look at how to install the VM Agent.
