Last update: 03-09-2020


It is possible to install Acronis Agent anonymously, without specifying the account details. In this case the machine will be registered under the Organization(root) unit automatically. See documentation for more information about units.


In case of manual installation:

  1. Run the installer, choose the option Install a backup agent and click Install Acronis Cyber Backup

  2. At the next step, specify the Management Server, then choose Use the following account option, type any text in the text fields and click Done

    Since you specified non-existing user, the Agent will be registered anonymously.

For unattended installation, do not specify credentials for Management Server in the command. See an example of command for anonymous unattended installation below:

msiexec.exe /i <msi file address> /qn ADDLOCAL=AgentsCoreComponents,BackupAndRecoveryAgent,CommandLineTool,TrayMonitor TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files\Acronis" MMS_USE_SYSTEM_ACCOUNT=1 MANAGEMENT_SERVER_ADDRESS=<host name or IP address>
