How to Enable uberAgent on a Subset of Machines Only

With technologies like Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS) a single operating system image can be used for many machines. Typically all relevant applications are installed in that image.

Some customers may want to install uberAgent in such an image but not use it on all machines that run the image. To only enable uberAgent on a subset of machines do the following:

  • Install uberAgent in the image
  • Change the start type of the system service uberAgent from automatic to manual
  • Use a computer startup script to determine whether uberAgent should be enabled on a machine. If so, start the service uberAgent
