SSR 2013 Agent deployment VERY slow

Created: 14 Feb 2013 | 4 comments

Hi

I've installed SSR2013 on a W2k8 R2 x64 Server and am trying to deploy the agent out to various other servers

of the same kind.  This deployment is taking on average - 16 minutes!!!!!  Longer than it takes to install the full blown

product?  Is this normal?  Can I speed it up? 

Thanks

Cindy

Hi

I guess the is normall as install is happening over network ,you can try installing it locally to see if that is quicker to avoid network issue

Hope that helps

Thanks

How do I install the agent locally?  is there an install kit just for the agent - i don't want to install

the full package on my servers....

Thanks

Hello Cindy,

How many clients are you trying to manage ?

It will take at least 10 minutes if you are deploying it correctly.

Go to SSR Console -> Click on Computers -> Click on Add -> Add the computer by ipaddress or machine name -> It will give you 3 options after connecting to the machine -> Click on Deploy Agent -> it will ask for a password -> Provide the Admin Credentials and good to go for Deployment.

Sometimes the deployment gets delayed because of Firewall ports open at both the ends.

Stop the firewall and deploy the agents , it will increase the speed.
