    I don't see any issues with that plan. It should work very well.

    Since I already have PDQ installed, can I convert the install at our home office to a Central Server install and then have the agents check into that, or do I need to reinstall it and start over? I did everything as stand alone when i did the initial installs.

    Thanks.

    Central Server is a mode PDQ Deploy and Inventory can operate in. You can switch modes under Options->Central Server at any time

    OK, so I'm looking at how to deploy the agent. I found this page: https://support.pdq.com/knowledge-base/876#4

    Since these machines have never been scanned by PDQ in our home office, I'm assuming I have to do the Manual Install for computers that have Not been scanned.

    Unless I'm reading this wrong, I have to manually create an entry for every server in PDQ Inventory first, and then generate a custom installer that I have to get out to the server and then run it from there? Is that right? Is there not a way to just install the agent with generic connection information and let it Check In with PDQ Inventory on its own? I have 600+ servers that I was thinking about putting the agent on and having them all check in with the home office. If that means I have to create 600 manual entries, 600 config files, and install the program 600 times by hand, that's nuts. And for every new machine we create I have to do that again?

    Please tell me I'm missing something here...
