Unattended deployment

    * Does not work in windows workgroups, works only in ActiveDirectory domains.
          o Make sure all computers on which the avast! client is to be installed belong to the administrators group.
          o In addition, all users need the right to "Log on as service".
    * Client deployment freezes at 70% and reboots
          o Sometimes the installation of the avast! client completes sucessfully on the client computer but the status of the job is not correctly updated in the administration console.

I understand I can't run Unattended deployment on computers non-members of a domain, does it mean that I can't install BP software on those computers at all, manually installing some "netclient" on each computer?

No, there are still other deployment methods as discussed in business protection admin guide. See section 6, deployment jobs.

Is there any official documentation now that this is released?

This one should answer most questions: http://files.avast.com/files/documentation/business-protection-plus-administrators-guide.pdf

Thanks

jx

Thanks, is there a webpage that has the documentation for all Avast products?

Hi all,

in case the customer does not need the central admin console, we can offer the IS.

But if he has a server, I agree it is quite expensive to purchase the standalone server edition, considering also that he has just a few machines. Then I'd go for the IS, and separately I'd offer the standalone server license with a good discount. So the final price IS + server would be attractive.

ciao chris

Hi Impuls,

Frankly speaking we are doubt about this statement,

But we just try to deploy with push installation on workgroup (not Active Directory) computer, and it can work smoothly.

From SBC we can set Push Deployment :

1. Jobs >> Scheduler >> Create a new scheduler
2. After prompted a new windows, you may put a description as you wanted
3. Then other menu on details, you may defined Job Type: Deployment and Job Selection : Unattended Depolyment
4. Please defined your username and password for computer target
5. Then defined your computer target name

After that you may push ease deployment.

cheers,

All I want to know is can I download the new ABP stuff and replace my current ADNM and pro clients, or will my customers have to pay for an upgrade or buy the new product in entirety?

I'm confused  ???

Hmm,

Where does my existing "Avast! Small Business Server Standard Suite" fit into all of this?

ABP or ABPP?

I assumed that the upgrade would be included within my present license agreement, but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent product.

I'm also confused...

Stephen
