The following rules apply if you're installing Dynatrace OneAgent or ActiveGate.
The Windows installer allows you to enter a proxy address during installation, so in the majority of cases you don't need to worry about adding extra command line parameters. Command line parameters are particularly useful when you're deploying a Group Policy installation or other automated task.
On Windows, the installer recognizes the
PROXY parameter. The value of this parameter is the proxy server address. Add the port number following a colon, for example
188.8.131.52:8080. For an authenticating proxy you can specify username and password like this
username:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080 where both username and password need to be URL encoded. This is not supported for ActiveGate though. For ActiveGate proxy authentication, only the format
<IP>:<PORT> is supported. We also support IPv6 addresses.
Parameter names are case sensitive, so use
ALL CAPS for parameter names.
Passing a proxy address to the installer
Let's say you're running an openSUSE server, you've downloaded your Dynatrace OneAgent installer to the folder
/tmp and your proxy IP address is 10.1.1.5. In such a scenario you would begin the installation like this:
Auto-detect proxy settings
To enable detection of global proxy settings during installation, type
auto as the
PROXY parameter value.
