Auto-Deploy is an installation tool that allows system administrators to automatically distribute preconfigured Client installations and connections to client machines.
When working with the Auto-Deploy feature, Users can:
- Configure Auto-Deploy.
- Run Auto-Deploy.
Use the Auto-Deploy Configuration window to configure Auto-Deploy to push out Client installations. When configuring Auto-Deploy, the system administrator defines:
- Which Client connection to push out.
For first-time installations, the Client connection must be configured during the Auto-Deploy configuration. Refer to Configure the Client Connection.
- Where to place the installation files.
- Connection and minor release options.
- Which CSM applications to install.
- Installation account options.
Users must download and install Auto-Deploy the first time they open the Desktop Client. After the initial installation, Users are prompted to install the new version.
Auto-Deploy requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8. Before installation, Auto-Deploy verifies that Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 exists on the client machine. If it does not exist, Auto-Deploy downloads and installs it.
To run Auto-Deploy:
- Type the URL into the Auto-Deploy installation.
- To install CSM, select the Cherwell Service Management link.
The Open/Save download box appears for the download.
- Run the file.
Auto-Deploy launches. The Auto-Deploy options vary depending on how the system administrator configured Auto-Deploy.
The Auto-Deploy file is generated dynamically by the local server and is unsigned. An unsigned file can trigger malware alerts.
- After the installation finishes, reboot your machine.
