Installing SASFTPAgent on Windows Core
Hi, I have a customer how wants to get some logs from a Windows Server Core OS. The customer is running on Netwitness 11.3 and he doesn't want to upgrade to 11.4 at the moment. I need to know, if it is possible, how to deploy sasftagent on the Windows Server Core as it doesn't have GUI to follow the installation wizard.

Since you have no UI the best approach might be to install the agent on a normal windows system then:
1. follow the instructions to create the public key using puttygen
2. Zip the sasftagent folder copy to and unzip under same install path on the Windows Base OS system
3. follow the instructions in the guide to register the system for example:
psftp -i private.ppk -l sftp -v 192.168.2.102 -g
Note the -g we added this in the latest agent posted this week on community i'd recommend using that new version.
this will add the collectors key to your systems environment.
If this works you can either use puttygen and create a different key or just use the same key it's up to you.
so it would be a case of doing steps 1, 2 and 3 for each system or 2 and 3 to keep same key per Windows core system.
