The Agent Rollout wizard 9 - Rollout targets and rollout accounts

This window is the second obligatory step of the rollout wizard, because it defines the target devices and the credentials to access them.

To define rollout targets

In the first part of the window the rollout targets are defined. You cannot add the master as a target device. Devices can be added to the list of rollout targets through a number of different ways:

After all devices are added click Next to continue.

To define rollout accounts

Specific login accounts can be defined to be used for the rollouts. These logons then try to log on to the device to execute the rollout in the order in which they are defined. The logons are tried in the order they are defined in the table, and once a login is successful all further accounts are ignored.

  1. Click Add Administrator .
  2. Enter the required data for the account login into the respective boxes.
    The access to the devices must be defined in the same way as for the installation before you can schedule the rollout. 

  3. To add a new account, click Add Administrator .
    The Properties dialog box appears on the screen.
  4. Enter the following data for a new account login into the respective boxes:
    1. Enter the name of the domain to which the rollout is going into the Administrator Domain box. If the rollout is going to all domains, you can use an asterisk (*).
    2. Enter the login name of the admin as which the agent deployment tries to log on to the remote target to install the agent into the Administrator Login box.

      as the "simple" login name of a local user of the remote computer, such as Administrator

      as.\logon for a local logon, or

      as domain\logon for a domain login of the administrator, such as LAB\TEST. The domain part can be set to a dot (.) to indicate the local computer.

      If you are not sure that your local administrator login has the same passwords for all targets, use the domain logon. For domain logons to work correctly, the necessary domain trust relationships must already were set up between the different domain controllers.

    3. Enter the password of the previously entered admin into the Password box. For security reasons the passwords is only displayed in the form of asterisks (*).
    4. Confirm the previously entered the password in this text box.
    5. Click OK to confirm the new account and add it.
      It is now shown in the preceding list.
  5. Click Verify Rollout at the bottom to ensure that the credentials are correct.
  6. Click Finish.
  7. Click Next to continue with the wizard.
