Defining credentials to deploy an agent on assets

To enable Track-It! to perform an audit or access assets remotely, you must define the account credentials to deploy BMC Client Management agents. When an audit request or a request to remotely control is sent to an asset, Track-It! checks whether an agent is already installed. If an agent is not installed, a BMC Client Management agent is installed on that asset. At a given time, only one agent can be installed on an asset. When an asset update is in progress, you cannot remove the domain name from the agent credentials. If you want to remove the domain name, you must delete and create new agent credentials that contain the updated domain name.

Based on how you have classified your assets, you can configure multiple credentials to deploy agents. For example, you have classified your assets based on environment, you can define different credentials to deploy agents on assets in Windows and Linux environment.

You can also choose to deploy an agent automatically on the asset once the asset is discovered.
