You can centrally manage the installation of the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems and the Advanced Open File Option (AOFO) to computers in an Active Directory network. You configure the installation once, and then use a Group Policy Object to assign that installation to computers in an Organizational Unit. The options are installed automatically whenever a computer in the Organizational Unit is started.

Create a transform for the Remote Agent and/or AOFO.
See Creating a transform.
A transform contains changes that you want to make to the Remote Agent's Windows Installer package when a computer starts, such as installation path, which computers to publish to, and whether to install AOFO. You must create separate transforms for 32-bit computers and 64-bit computers.
Requirements to create a transform are as follows:
Create a distribution point (share) that contains the source file of the Remote Agent that you want to install.
You must copy the transform that you create, and the Backup Exec RAWS32 or RAWSX64 directory, to the distribution point.
Configure a Group Policy Object to assign the transform and the RAWS32 or RAWSX64 directory in the distribution point to computers in an Active Directory Organizational Unit.
The software is installed automatically when the computers in the Organizational Unit are started.
