Install additional Consoles

With the installation of Ivanti Automation, a Console was installed. If necessary, you can deploy additional Consoles, to create multiple points of administration of your Ivanti Automation environment. From these Consoles the same Ivanti Automation environment can be monitored and used. It is also possible to deploy Consoles to other computers and use them to set up an entirely new Ivanti Automation environment.

  • Additional Consoles can also be installed manually or unattended.
  • The default installation folder of Consoles is C:\Program Files (x86)\Ivanti\Automation\Console for 64-bit machines and C:\Program Files\Ivanti\Automation\Agent for 32-bit machines.

Install an additional Console

  1. Open an existing Console and go to Topology > Consoles.
  2. Click New in the command bar. This opens the Push Deployment window.
  3. Select the target computer(s). You can do this by clicking Browse button to browse your network, but you can also directly enter the host name, the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN), or the IP-address in the Target Computer(s) field.
  4. If you select computers by browsing, select the computer on which you want to deploy an Agent. You can make multiple selections.
  5. Alternatively, you can choose to scan all computers in a specific IP-range to narrow down the selection.
  6. Click Deploy now to start the actual deployment. When the deployment process starts, you need to enter the user name and password for the computer on which the Console is deployed. This user account requires administrative privileges, because it must have installation permissions.

You can view the deployment progression in the Push Deployment window.

If a deployment is successful, it shows 100% in the column completed successfully. When the deployed Console starts, it becomes visible in the Consoles node.

It is not possible to create a new Datastore from an additional Console (from a computer on which only a Console has been installed, not a full installation of Ivanti Automation).
