Deploying Software to a single workstation RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Is there anyway to deploy software to a single workstation rather than to a whole group? Another issue that I ran into was that I couldn't add a workstation to a group after I populated and created that group; very suprised I must say. Please help!

  • Hi Faisal,

    It is by design that you have to deploy the software to computer group not single station, for a possible workaround, I'd like to suggest you create a new group that contains the specific client which you want to deploy the software.

    For another question, please try the following steps to add the client.

    1. In "Computer" space, right click the group which you want to add the cient and select "Properties"

    2. un-select "only show computers in this group".

    3. select the client which you want to add in.

    Hope this helps.
