Remote install of DPM 2010 agents

8:57 am in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

It is a fact… From time to time, DPM won’t install the agent through the GUI.  And yes, most of the time, then you need to install it manually.  In the larger environments, we use different methods for our DPM agent deployments, but in the smaller ones, the infrastructure for doing that just isn’t there. 

Hans De Leenheer, which is a colleague of mine does quite some DPM implementations with smaller companies as part of a larger projects.  As he likes the words “a good admin is a lazy admin” (which is something I share with him :-)) he decided to create a small procedure to install the agents on servers remotely.  Now he doesn’t need to RDP to each server.

The procedure can be found here:

Thanks Hans,

Enjoy
