  2. Copy the script to the client computers whre the agent is installed.
  3. Open a command prompt (start --> Run --> cmd and press enter)
  4. Execute the command given below:

    cscript configureDCAgentServerCommunication.vbs <DCServerName> <DCServer IP Address> <DCServer HTTP Port> <DCServer HTTPS Port> <DCServerAgent Comm Protocol>
