    Agent Deployment with Group Selection?

    therealjoshuad

      I'll start this off by saying that I am not the one who setup our ePO environment, so forgive me if I don't use the proper terms. I'm using FramePkg.exe to deploy the ePO agent at time of Operating System Deployment. The command I use is: framepkg.exe /install=agent /silent

       

      Here is the group structure in our enviornment for reference in my question:

       

      *My Organization

      *My Organization

      *End User Terminals

      *Workstations

      *Kiosk Machines

      *Servers

      *Server Group 1

      *Server Group 2

      *Lost&Found

      DomainName

      WORKGROUP

       

      This installs the agent, and puts the computer into a "Lost&Found" container, with a sub group of our domain name. Is there a method of getting the newly deployed computers into the proper "Workstations" group via the command line, and if not, what is the other way to have this process happen?

          Firstly, please have a look at the "How a system is added to the system tree when sorted" section of the ePO product guide, which explains the process ePO goes through when placing a machine.

          There are other sections here that can help - in particular the "Criteria-based sorting" and "Sort systems into criteria-based groups" sections, which you can use to control the placement of machines.

          Finally, if you're using ePO 5.x and your end users have admin rights, you can use  a URL-based deployment, which can directly control where the machines are placed: see the MA 4.8 Product Guide for details.
