A package can be deployed manually or based on a schedule. When a deployment is initiated, Lansweeper uses your scanning credentials to access the Task Scheduler on your machines, creates a task on your computers that will run the deployment steps, and ends the connection. The task is then run under your computer's system account, the scanning credential mapped to the computer or the user currently logged into the computer.
It is generally recommended that you use the system account to run the task, which is the most secure. However, the other two options may be useful if your deployment requires special permissions or is meant to make changes to a specific user's installed software or registry keys.
The default run mode is configured in the Deployment > Security options section of the web console, but you can specify another run mode when manually initiating or scheduling a deployment as well.
Deployments are performed in batches. The number of concurrent deployments is determined by the Deployment Threads value configured in the Configuration > Server Options > Service Options section of the web console.
To deploy a package manually, choose either of the options listed below. A pop-up will confirm which package you would like to deploy. Optionally, you can choose to perform a Wake-on-LAN of offline computers before deployment, in which case you'll need to specify an estimated boot time per asset. You can also have the deployment automatically retried for offline machines.
To deploy a package based on a schedule, follow the steps below. Optionally, you can perform a Wake-on-LAN of offline computers before deployment, wherein you'll need to specify an estimated boot time per asset. You can also have the deployment automatically retried for offline machines or triggered by a successful scan.
