Centralized Installation of Network Agents with Centralized Deployment

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

  1. Before you begin, please download the files you need, and then unpack the Centralized Deploy utility on the machine you will use as the backup management console. You can find all the files you need here:

Caveat: You must unpack the Centralized Deploy utility to a consistent folder, making no attempt to distribute the content of this archive by different folders.

  1. Select a path to the installation files. By default, this is the path 
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Novosoft\Handy Backup 7\BackupNetworkWorkstation\Packet\Distrib” or
    “C:\Program Files\Novosoft\Handy Backup 7\BackupNetworkWorkstation\Packet\Distrib” 
    (depending of the current OS 32- or 64-bit architecture) in the Windows Explorer.

  1. In the next fields, type domains or names of machines and then usernames for installing the Network Agents. Select a type of installation (32- or 64-bit) for each machine if you need it (by default, the utility will select between 32-and 64-bit for each 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.

  3. Now your utility is ready to install. If you entered correct data, start the installation.

This is all. Please configure your network edition of Handy Backup with the Network Agents you just install to remote machines!
