The number of agents depends on the number of managed instances in a data center and the total throughput. Citrix recommends that you install at least one agent for every data center.
You can install only one agent when you log on to the service for the first time. To add multiple agents, first complete the initial setup, and then navigate to Settings > Setup Agents.
If you are onboarding for the first time, access the service GUI, navigate to the Set Up Agent screen, and click Generate Activation Code.
While trying to install a second agent, to generate a new activation code, navigate to Settings > Generate Activation Code.
If your agent is installed on a hypervisor or Microsoft Azure cloud, the default credentials to log on to the NetScaler MA Service agent is nsrecover/nsroot. This logs you on to the shell prompt of the agent.
If your agent is installed on AWS, the default credentials to log on to the NetScaler MA Service agent is nsrecover/<instance id>.
Minimum requirements: 8 GB RAM, 4 Virtual CPU, 120 GB Storage, 1 Virtual Network Interfaces, 1 Gbps Throughput
Recommended requirements: 32 GB RAM, 8 Virtual CPU, 500 GB Storage, 1 Virtual Network Interfaces, 1 Gbps Throughput
No, you cannot.
No, you do not have to add an additional disk. The agent is used only as an intermediary between the NetScaler MA Service and the instances in your enterprise data center or on the cloud. It does not store inventory or analytics data that would require an additional disk.
No, you cannot.
Access the agent console on your hypervisor, log on to the shell prompt by using the credentials nsrecover/nsroot, and then run the command "networkconfig".
After the agent is successfully registered, access NetScaler MA Service and navigate to the Set Up Agent screen. You can see the discovered agent on the screen. If the agent is running fine, the status is indicated by a green icon. If it is not running, the state is indicated by a red icon.
You have to enable Insight on your virtual servers to be able to see the Analytics Reports. For details, see Enabling Analytics.
For management and monitoring features, NetScaler instances running 10.5 and later are supported. Some features are only supported on certain NetScaler versions. For details, see System Requirements.
