Deploying the SEM Agent to multiple Windows computers in an enterprise environment
There are two options for deploying the SEM Agent unattended on Windows:
Option 1: You can use the Remote Agent Installer to deploy SEM Agents to computers non-interactively.
See Run the SEM Remote Agent Installer for large Windows deployments for more information.
Option 2: Use the Local Agent Installer with either software distribution policies or local logon scripts to deploy the SEM Agent non-interactively. This method is an alternative to the Remote Agent Installer option for large deployments.
See Run the SEM Local Agent Installer for large Windows deployments for more information.
