AMIs EC2, VMDK/VMX files for VMware, OVF exports for VirtualBox

Hello,


What is the general way to deploy agents on above machine images. I assume for every deployment an installation has to be executed to generate the unique host id?

If you are thinking about installing Oneagent into a VM image, I think the best approach would be to perform an installation each time a machine is generated from that template (or initially started up). I'd recommend writing a script that would download the agent and install it. After a successful installation the script would disable itself.

By using this method your VM will always have the most recent agent. Also, you can easily script to download the correct installation package for the environment - handy in case the VM image will be used in different environments.
