Automatically deploy VSE to clients (using epo 4.6.2)

Jump to solution

I've configured our domain (logon script) to install the mcafee agent to any client in our domain when a user is logged on to the domain. But then only the Agent is installed.

How do i (automatically) deploy VSE to the clients?

Do i have to create a 'client task' and assign it to a group? I have already such a client task that deploys the VSE, but if i schedule it every day, does it not install again and again to the clients?

Or is there some command line for VSE that is checks if it is already installed?

Or do i need to do this manually? If so, is there a way to create a report/query so i know which clients do not have the VSE installed (yet)?

Another related question: how can i prevent that a user can uninstalling VSE?

Hi denniz, you can set de VSE deployment task at the system tree top level so your clients execute this task every day.

When a computer launches this task they will first download the catalog.z file from epo server (a small file) and it will compare it with its own; if product is already installed then it won't download VSE again (nor install it again).

Hi Ulyses31,

Thanks for the information. I did add the VSE deployment task to the node in my system tree (where i want this functionality). And schedule it on startup (or maybe will schedule it otherwise).

And this works exactly like i want it to!
