There are 3 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
- In the Network Tree, select the network name.
- Select Network > Remote Installation.
- Select Add.
- Type the admin user name and password.
- 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:
- Right-click the endpoint in the Network Tree > Edit host.
- On the Credentials tab, select Custom.
- Enter the credentials into the dialog.
- Select OK.
Disabling UAC on the endpoint:
If an endpoint has the Windows User Account Control function enabled, then the Remote Installation process will fail.
You can find out more about disabling UAC here.
Installing the Endpoint Agent:
When you have specified the credentials, you can install the Endpoint Agent to a group, an individual endpoint, or even the whole network.
- In the Network Tree, right-click the group or endpoint > Remote install agent.
- That's it - you're all done.
You may now perform CCleaner Network tasks on this endpoint.
