I've followed your documentation which states you can run the Skyvia Service as an agent like so...

Skyvia.Agent.Client.exe -i 

and then should be able to run:

net start Skyvia.Agent.Client.exe


Unfortunately I am getting an error when running this which states: 

Unknown command-line parameter '-i'.


We need this service to start automatically with each server reboot. Please help.

Thanks, Edward

Hello Jessie, To register agent as a service, you have to run the command line as an administrator. Please note that the command has to be performed in the folder where the agent is installed.


After that please make sure the service is available in the Services list and its start type is switched to "Automatic".
