Deployment accounts

The program allows you to select an account, used to deploy software on remote PCs. You are prompted to specify the account at the first start of the program. You can change the account settings later on the Deployment Account page of the Preferences dialog. In the Professional edition of the program you can override the global deployment account settings for a deployment task to use a specific account.

You can configure the program to deploy software using administrative accounts specified in the Credentials view, where you can setup one administrative account for entire network, or specify different accounts for domains, workgroups, organizational units and individual PCs. Also you can deploy software remotely using the Local System account on remote PCs, or using the accounts of logged on users on remote PCs, if required.

Interactive deployment

If required, you can configure the program to run deployments interactively, so the users on target PCs can see deployment progress and can follow the deployment steps. To enable interactive deployment you need to select the corresponding option on the Deployment Account page of the Preferences dialog, or, if you use the Professional edition of the program, you can override the global settings in a deployment task and configure it to run interactively.

Effective Credentials in the Credentials view

The Credentials view now has the new column that can help you to see the specific credentials used to work with every PC. Credentials are inherited from the parent nodes, so in the Effective Credentials column you can see the inheritance root and the credentials that are used for every network node.

New and improved features

The below features have been introduced for the first time or significantly improved in this release:

  • Reboot confirmations, deployment confirmations and pre/post messages can now be displayed regardless of the account used for deployment
