Multiple host deployment

  • This install requires PsExec.exe to be installed on the deployment computer (available here).

  • The remote install procedure will work ONLY with windows 1.4 agents or newer.

On deployment computer:

  1. Download the windowsremoteinstall.zip file from the repository archive and extract to disk (Suggested folder C:\monitiq_rinst).
