Centralized Installation of Network Agents with Centralized Deploy

Handy Backup allows centralized deployment of Network Agents via the dedicated Centralized Deploy utility, distributed with the Server Network edition. To the reference, see the main utility window on the next screenshot.

Centralized Installation of Network Agents with Centralized Deployment

To perform the centralized deployment, please follow the instruction listed below.

  1. In a new dialog window, click onto the "Add a machine" option.
  2. In the next form, type domains or names of machines and then usernames and passwords for those users on remote machines who install the Network Agents.
  3. You can also select the installation type (32- or 64-bit) for each machine if you need it (by default, the utility will make auto selection according to a target OS).

Note: This installation requires typing domain names or machine names before the username in the account! In addition, adding a new machine will copy a username and a password from the previous account, which is very useful when the administrator′s account is the same for all computers.
