Remote Installation

There are 2 steps to Remote Deployment

Define the admin credentials

Remote Installation requires you to have admin access to the target Endpoint.  If you have a set of admin credentials that are common to all (or most) of your Endpoints, then you can specify these in the Management Console and they will be used for whichever hosts/Groups you specify. Endpoint credentials can be defined by Group, Endpoint, or a combination of both.

Setting credentials for a Group

  1. In the Network Tree, select the Network name.
  2. Select Network > Remote Installation.
  3. Select Add.
  4. Type the admin user name and password.
  5. Select OK, and then select OK again.

To check which credentials are to be used for which host, you can click on an Endpoint in the Network Tree, and view the credentials on the Summary tab.

To change the credential set for a Group, right-click the Group name in the Network Tree > Edit group. Select the credentials from the Default Credentials drop-down, and then select OK.

Setting credentials for an Endpoint

If an Endpoint has a unique set of admin credentials, then you can specify them for that Endpoint:

  1. Right-click the Endpoint in the Network Tree > Edit host.
  2. On the Credentials tab, select Custom.
  3. Enter the credentials into the dialog.
  4. Select OK.

Installing the Endpoint Agent

When you have specified the credentials, you can install the Endpoint Agent to a Group, an individual host or even the whole Network.

  1. In the Network Tree, right-click the Group or Endpoint > Remote install agent.
  2. That's it - you're all done.
