Management Center

Configuring the Deployment Agent

In this section:

Allow Deployment Agent to Self Register with a Deployment Group

You can set up a deployment group to allow the Deployment Agent to self-register with a specific group. This option is disabled by default but provides an alternative method for installing Deployment Agents on managed computers to register with a specific deployment group on the Management Center rather than predefining the group membership in the Management Console.

  1. Select the Home button in the navigation pane.
  2. Expand the [Server] > Deployment Groups > [Deployment Group] node.
  3. Select the Settings node.
  4. Select the General tab.
  5. Select the Allow self-registration option.

Any user can now choose during Deployment Agent installation for the computer to join the deployment group.

Allow Deployment Agent to Unregister from a Deployment Group

You can set up a deployment group to allow a local administrator to request the Deployment Agent unregisters computers from a specific group. This option is disabled by default.

  1. Select the Home button in the navigation pane.
  2. Expand the [Server] > Deployment Groups > [Deployment Group] node.
  3. Select the Settings node.
  4. Select the General tab.
  5. Select the Allow unregistration option.

An administrator can now command the Deployment Agent to unregister computers from this deployment group.

Allow Deployment Agent Initiate Updates

You can set up a deployment group to allow a local administrator to request the Deployment Agent initiates updates of agents and configurations outside of any installation schedule that is set up. This option is disabled by default.

  1. Select the Home button in the navigation pane.
  2. Expand the [Server] > Deployment Groups > [Deployment Group] node.
  3. Select the Settings node.
  4. Select the General tab.
  5. Select the Allow update initiation option.

An administrator can now command the Deployment Agent to immediately install or uninstall packages for this deployment group regardless of the installation schedule.
