Automated deployment tools can be used to save time by automatically initiating download on targeted computers. It is also a secure way to manage and monitor the software.

Step 1: Configuring Group Policy

First you have to create a distribution point by logging in as administrator and putting the installer package in a shared network folder. You also have to set permissions for the share.

Begin by activating Directory Users and Computers. Create a new policy by accessing Group Policy tab. Click “Create a GPO in this domain, and link it here…” under the domain name. Create a new policy name, save it and access Security from Properties option. Set the necessary policies and click OK.

Step3: Control the Number of Users and Updates

A request for authorization is issued automatically to the server whenever any installation is performed on workstations. The manager handling the server will have to carry out the approval or disapproval of the request. This can be done to prevent any unwanted access or misuse of the application.

Updates for PDFelemet are not released automatically to users. This too can be controlled by the IT team from the server end. Updates are sent only after proper authorization.

These simple steps will help you to successfully deploy the software to multiple computers at the same time. This can significantly save time and you do not have to worry about safety and security as well.
