Hi everyone,


Is there a way (prefer. registry key) to determine is a Netskope Client install was single user (default) or multi user mode? This would help in "cleanup" of messed-up installs.


Best regards,

@EleComte check out this doc:


Basically, you can check for presence of this directory: C:Users^%USERNAME^%Netskope. If you see it, it means the client is installed in multi-user mode.

We are also dealing with this - a bunch of clients got installed in single user mode - supposedly pushing a reinstall of client with a different CLI command should recognize the client is already installed and then just change the necessary components - since we reply on NPA for remote access we do not want the tunnel to drop for a long period when pushing this

c:programdata etskopestagent suserconfig.json contains the enablePerUserConfig state info. 

I don’t see this happening - I installed NetSkope with the multi-user settings and it did not create that folder under the username folder.

Looks like it is under Users\public
