    Transparent manual agent installs

    Rookie

      Apologies if this has been asked before, I did search but didn't come up with an answer.  We're using Shavlik Protect 9 in our environment for patching and I am just taking over the project.  I identified a number of computers that are missing the agent and while most of the installs went off without a hitch, a substantial percentage of them failed. 

       

      What I would like to do is use GPO to deploy and run the installer silently at login, and then rather than registering the agent manually , I was wondering if I would be able to do that by "waking up" the agent from the server end using Agents > Install/Reinstall with Policy > xxxx?  Barring that is there any other way to do this without interrupting the affected users that I am overlooking?

       

      An example of the failure messages (all on pingable machines):

               

           _The deployment has failed

           _Run Remote Task failed to create the remote command service. Error code - 0x[431]

       

      Thanks,

       

      Matt.
