N-Able RMM Zorus Agent Deployment

In this guide, we will be showing you how to deploy the Zorus Windows Agent via Solarwinds RMM.

Important Information:

- The Windows Agent can be installed on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Windows 10, & Windows 11

- To ensure complete functionality of the agent, Port 7789 must be allowed outbound in your firewall if you have an outbound filtering policy.

Once you have the Solarwinds RMM software installed on your customer's devices, you can begin the process of deploying the Zorus Agent by following the steps below.

Step 1. First, make sure that you have the Solarwinds Agent installed. To download the agent for a device, click "File", "Add Device", "Download Agent", and then choose the OS and version you wish to download.

Step 2. Once you've installed it on the devices you want, you'll need to upload the script we provide from our knowledgebase, by copy and pasting it into a notepad document and saving it as a .ps1 (powershell) file.

***NOTE*** You will have to change the Token within this script for every customer/site you deploy to. To avoid confusion during deployments, name the script after the customer name to make sure you're using the script with the correct token.

Step 2a. To upload your script, click "Settings" and then "Script Manager". After, the Script Manager window will appears, click "New". This will bring up another window that allows you to name, describe, as well as upload the script file itself. You'll want to be sure to check the boxes "Automated Task" and "Windows". After completing these steps, be sure to click "Save" to finish uploading the script.

Step 3. Now we're ready to add the script to a Task that you will be running on that customer site to deploy the Zorus agent. To do this click, "Edit", "Task", and click "Add". This will bring up a window where you'll need to scroll down to the "User Defined" section near the bottom. Select the script for the customer you wish to install and click "Next".

Step 3a. Now you'll choose if you want to install on Servers, Workstations, or both. After choosing, click "Next", give the Task a descriptive name and then move on to the next step where you'll choose the frequency you want this task to run. On this step, click the dropdown menu, choose "Manual" then click "Next". Now you'll be asked to set the amount of time you want to allow the Task the execute. This is up to you but it's fine to leave it on the default which is one hour. After deciding this, click "Next" to move onto the final step.





The final step of the Task wizard will ask you to confirm the endpoints you wish to deploy to. After doing this, simply click "Add Task". 


Completing the above steps will add and run the task on your endpoints after finishing the Task wizard.
