Start/Stop the Agent from the command line

There are times when you need to pause the agent as the system performs scheduled tasks that would normally cause the agent to report as overdue. To avoid the agent reporting as overdue during these tasks, there are command line options to place the agent offline and then back online again after the required tasks are complete.

In the command line interface, navigate to the default installation folder;

32bit Systems;

C:\Program Files\Advanced Monitoring Agent\

64bit Systems:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Advanced Monitoring Agent\

To set the agent as offline:

winagent.exe /offline

To set the agent as online:

winagent.exe /online

If the Agent was deployed using a Site Installation Package using Group Policy the default installation folder is Advanced Monitoring Agent GP.
