Rolling out CM agents to specific IP address ranges

Rolling out CM agents to specific IP address ranges

To roll the agent out to specific IP address ranges instead of selecting the devices from the network neighborhood, an autodiscovery must be executed before starting the actual rollout procedure.

Running an autodiscovery on an IP address range

  1. In the left window pane of the console select the device which is to execute the autodiscovery of the network; this should be the relay under which the clients are to be located.
  2. Select the Agent Configuration > Module Configuration > AutoDiscovery node.
  3. Select Edit > Properties .
    The Properties dialog box appears on the screen, displaying the module's parameters.
  4. Enter the indicated values for the following parameters and leave all others as they are:

    Timeout (sec)

    2

    Address Range

    The IP address range to scan

    Address Verification Interval (sec)

    2

    Use Network Neighborhood

    Yes

  5. Click OK to confirm the new parameters and to close the window.
    The autodiscovery is launched immediately. You can follow its progress by going to the Device List tab.
  6. To see the list populated with devices found by the relay, click Refresh from time to time.

Rolling out client agents to specific IP address ranges

  1. Select Wizards > Agent Rollout menu item .
    The Core Setup Configuration window appears.
  2. Check the Configure the relay selection or use master otherwise box.

    If you want to schedule the rollout at a specific date and time check the Configure a custom schedule for this rollout (default is one immediate execution) box.

  3. Click Next .
    The General Parameters appears.
  4. Enter the name of the new rollout (for example, Windows 7 Client Rollout) into the Name box.
  5. Enter the name for the rollout package executable in the Auto-extractable Name box (for example, win7clientagent12.exe ).
  6. Select the operating system group to which the agent is to be rolled out from the list of the Operating System box (for example, Windows XP/2003... (64 bit) .
  7. Click Next .
    The Communication window appears.
  8. To find the relay click Add Device from List next to the Parent Name box.
  9. Click All .
  10. Select the desired parent device from the list that appears and click OK .
  11. Click Next .
    The Targets & Accounts window appears.
  12. When selecting the rollout targets from the autodiscovery you have two possibilities to do so:
    1. You can select the targets from a general list displaying all autodiscovered devices.

      The tab is the preselected tab when the window is opened. It displays the list of all devices found by all devices executing autodiscoveries in the network.

  13. Select the device/devices to be added to the list by highlighting the different devices and moving them to the Selected Devices list to the right via Add .
    You can select a maximum of 18 devices for your rollout with the evaluation license. The evaluation license allows you to test with a total of 20 devices, and you already installed the master and probably at least one relay.
    You cannot add the master as a target device.
  14. Click OK to add the selected devices and close the window.
    1. You can select the targets from the autodiscovered list of a specific device.
  15. Select the AutoDisc Device tab ( ) in the left window bar.
    The Select a Device window appears.
  16. Click All and then select the device that carried out the autodiscovery, that is, the parent relay in this example).
    The Available Devices box now displays the list of all devices found.
  17. Select the device/devices to be added to the list by highlighting the different devices and moving them to the Selected Devices list to the right via Add .
    You can select a maximum of 18 devices for your rollout with the evaluation license. The evaluation license allows you to test with a total of 20 devices, and you already installed the master and probably at least one relay.
    You cannot add the master as a target device.
  18. Click OK to add the selected devices and close the window.
  19. Click Add Administrator .
  20. Enter the required data for the account login into the respective boxes.
  21. Click Verify Rollout to ensure that the entered account data is correct.
  22. Click OK and then Finish .
  23. In the Confirmation dialog box, select the Go to Rollout radio button to change the focus of the console window to the new rollout. Click Yes to confirm the immediate activation.
  24. If you did not check the Go to Rollout box at the end of the wizard, select the newly created rollout in the left tree hierarchy and then its Servers subnode.

    In the Assigned Schedule tab you can follow the general progress of the client rollout assignment.

  25. After this value reads Executing select the Targets tab to follow progress of each individual target through the Status column (initial status is Initial and final stage should be Installed ).

You have now rolled out the CM agent to a specific subnet of your infrastructure.
