How do I install the DeploymentPro (legacy) using a logon script?
When installing the DeploymentPro (legacy) Agent from a logon script or through Group Policy, the process is defined by five phases:
1. Admin Download
In order to prepare for running DeploymentPro (legacy) from a logon script, the admin should complete the following steps:
Click on the Start menu and open up the Command Prompt (cmd).
Navigate to the directory that you downloaded Bootstrap.exe into.
This will download both the x86 and x64 versions of DeploymentPro (legacy), and will open Windows Explorer to show the result.
2. Write the logon script
In order to write the logon script, complete the following steps:
Replace the [Activation Code] (remove the brackets) with the Activation Code that can be found in your DeploymentPro portal.
The ? attempts to automatically identify the current user's email address to use as a unique identifier for configuration and tracking in the Project Dashboard.
Save as a .bat file.
Notes:Make sure that all of your users have been created in Office 365 before running the logon script. Make sure that you include a folder exist check within the batch file, to check if the directory %temp%/UserActivation exists. If the directory exists, the script should end processing. If this check is not included, then you can experience an issue where the installation process will loop and won't complete successfully. Please review the following Microsoft Support article on how to check if a directory exists: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/65994.
3. Agent gets deployed to users:
Note: If running a project with MigrationWiz, the Configure Outlook button should be clicked on only when you are ready for the profiles to be reconfigured. This is typically done after MX record cutover. More details can be found in KB005391.
5. Outlook Configuration:
Once the Guardian processes receive the signal from the BitTitan servers that the Configure Outlook button has been clicked on, it launches the OutlookConfigurator.exe file.
This will launch the DeploymentPro Wizard, which will guide the user through the configuration process below:
Note: Screen shots of the end user experience can be found in KB005457.
Once DeploymentPro (legacy) is complete and confirmation is received, then the Guardian process will end.
