Register Agent (quiet)
You can send the registration information to the N-sight RMM Dashboard using the quiet switch. Enter the register command for the rmmagentd daemon either as root or by assuming root privileges by sudo, providing the computer's password where prompted.
To avoid any command failures due to blank space or special characters, we recommend you encapsulate them in quotation marks.
$ sudo /usr/local/rmmagent/rmmagentd register --quiet --firstname.lastname@example.org --password=Password321 --Client=Beta --Site="Site A" --desc="Bruce MacBook"
Information displays as plain text in the terminal when using this option.
Quiet Register Command Switches
The following switches are available when using the quiet option to register the Agent.
$ sudo /usr/local/rmmagent/rmmagentd register help
