The SQLcompliance Agent Deployment window of the Configuration wizard allows you to choose when and how you want to deploy the SQLcompliance Agent to the target SQL Server instance. You can deploy the SQLcompliance Agent now or later using the IDERA SQL Compliance Manager Management Console, or manually using the setup program.
If you are auditing a virtual SQL Server , you must manually deploy the SQLcompliance Agent to each cluster node hosting the server. Use the Cluster Configuration Console to deploy and configure the SQLcompliance Agent. For more information about installing and configuring the SQLcompliance Agent for a virtual SQL Server, see Audit a virtual SQL Server instance.
