Hi #prefect-community, does anyone have any experience running prefect agent in Windows Server?

The answer to this can be yes/no - not sure whether this would help you :)
What's your actual question? are you just getting started with Prefect? We plan to have a release for Prefect 2.0 with Windows support within the next two weeks

What do you mean by Windows support in Prefect 2.0? Is it for Server or Agent?
the linked topic explains the difference between 1.0 and 2.0
you can use Windows Server to host both local and Docker agents for 1.0

@Anna Geller do you have any recommendation on how to keep the agent (local/docker) always up and running in windows?
Also I need to ensure that the agent will be started automatically after a reboot

there is something like Windows Service Manager - there is some Windows service to run daemon processes on Windows, can you ask your server admins? it works the same way as any long-running background process

We can. That probably will take some more time than to handle that within our team but probably the only way to to go. Thanks for helping!
