Deploying the agent to off-site machines that haven't been scanned


Ive got 40-ish laptops that rarely come back to base. We dont use VPN, but the machines do exist in AD. Am I right in thinking that I am going to have to physically login to each machine to install the agent? Ive seen this, but that only applies to machines that have been previously scanned.

    We are announcing the End of Life (EOL) of the optional PDQ Agent beta from our existing products. See this blog post for more information

  • Nope.. you should be able to find them automagically in PDQ:

    enter image description here

    Highlight the ones under the "PDQ Agent (Not Installed)" collection, select Install Agent.

  • Ack, I just reread your question and I didn't see the 'external' piece. You could just monitor the ones that show up and do what I mentioned, or you could run the linked method through psexec when they come online.

  • Cheers Brian for the reply. Looks like its a manual connection to each one, sigh
