How to deploy to a remote site with multiple PC's

Created: 12 Apr 2013 • Updated: 12 Apr 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a few sites that have a very slow connection back to the main office but I have a standard 1 GB network at those locations. If I deploy the setup.exe file to one of the off site computers how can I use that install file to install SEP to all the computers at that locaiton? I don't want to push out the install from the main office.

I have seeen where it can deploy using a URL but if I go through the steps and pick the setup.exe I've copied to that location will it run from that offsite locaiton or weill SEPM copy the setup.exe from the offsite computer to the AVS server at the main office then try to upload it to those offsite computers.

Thank you for any help/clues/insite.

You can use the Push Deployment Tool. It is a standalone tool for pushing packages to clients. You can copy the tool and install package to a PC/server at the remote site and run from there.
