Steps to distribute AdminSecure Communications Agent by modifying the user login script
This process can be launched from the console by following the steps below:
- Click Tools -> Distribute communications agent -> Distribution of the communications agent.
- Click Generate a communications agent installation package and set it to run from the users' login script and click Next.
- You must then choose the domain in which you are working and all the Windows servers where you want to modify the script and create the shared folders with all the necessary files. You also need to specify the computer that contains the Administration Server and the Repository you want to use for that computer (if you don’t want to use the repository in the computer that contains the administration server).
- After following these steps, a PAVFILES folder will be generated in the server, which will be shared as PAVFILES$ with all the files needed to distribute the agent. The login script of the selected users will also be modified, in order to run the PMGR000.bat file which contains all the commands necessary for the agent to be installed.
