Remote Deployment Particularities

Remote Installer is designed to perform remote deployment. The process of deploying software remotely differs from regular deployment. Mostly, remote deployment is performed in a silent manner and requires a correct configuration of the installers. By default, most of the installation setup programs guide the end user through the setup wizard, thus the interaction with the user is required to complete the setup. For mass deployment, it is very important that the deployment process be performed without any interaction with the user. Installation setup programs mostly support silent execution, but the execution parameters may vary depending on the installation vendor. Another important thing for remote deployment is the account used to perform it. In this chapter, we will show you how to choose the account to be used for deployments, how to configure installers for silent deployment and how to check if the installer is configured correctly before performing a mass deployment.
