AWS Installing AWS Inspector Agent on Windows EC2 Instance

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post on installing the AWS Inspector Agent on a Windows EC2 instance.

Open PowerShell and run the following command:

(new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('https://inspector-agent.amazonaws.com/windows/installer/latest/AWSAgentInstall.exe','C:UsersAdministratorDesktopAWSAgentInstall.exe')

On your desktop, right click on AWSAgentInstall.exe and select run as administrator. Follow the prompts.

Go to run, and execute services.msc. You should now see the Amazon SSM Agent:

If you go to your amazon console > amazon inspector > assessment targets > Click on your relevant target > Preview Target:

Your agent status should now be healthy.
