Installation Methods

All of the Security Agent installation methods can be used to install the Security Agent on pure IPv6 or dual-stack Security Agents. For some installation methods, there are special requirements to install the Security Agent successfully.

It is not possible to migrate ServerProtect™ to the Security Agent using the ServerProtect Normal Server Migration Tool because the tool does not support IPv6 addressing.

Installation Method

Requirements/Considerations

Web install page and browser-based installation

The URL to the installation page includes the Apex One server's host name or its IP address.

If you are installing to a pure IPv6 Security Agent, the server must be dual-stack or pure IPv6 and its host name or IPv6 address must be part of the URL.

For dual-stack Security Agents, the IPv6 address that displays in the installation status screen depends on the option selected in the Preferred IP Address section of Agents > Global Agent Settings on the Network tab.

Agent Packager

When running the packager tool, you will need to choose whether to assign Update Agent privileges to the Security Agent. Remember that a pure IPv6 Update Agent can distribute updates only to pure IPv6 or dual-stack Security Agents.

Security Compliance, Vulnerability Scanner, and remote installation

A pure IPv6 server cannot install the Security Agent on pure IPv4 endpoints. Similarly, a pure IPv4 server cannot install the Security Agent on pure IPv6 endpoints.
