Remote software installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a client/server application and after installing the server component, was able to silently and seamlessly push the client software to all clients on the network of my choosing. I did not need to touch the clients at all, simply selected which computers on the network I wanted to include and the path to install.

    Background: It is a domain environment and I did give the application administrator credentials. PowerShell Remoting is not enabled on the clients.

    This is more of a curious question as I did not know this was possible and wondered if anyone knows how this might work?

  • I'd probably ask the software vendor on their methods and or technologies employed.
