What is the process for installing the DeploymentPro (legacy) Agent from a logon script?
When installing the DeploymentPro 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 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, 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:
Note: When using DeploymentPro through MigrationWiz: The Activation code can be accessed in your (DeploymentPro) Project Dashboard after you confirm your project settings.
Save as a .bat file.
Notes:Before running the logon script, make sure that all of your users have been created in Office 365. 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, you could 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: When 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 DNS records have been cut over (if using UserActivation), or Configure Outlook button has been clicked on (if using MigrationWiz), it launches the OutlookConfigurator.exe file.
This will launch the DeploymentPro Wizard, which will guide the user through this configuration process:
Note: Screen shots of the end user experience can be found in KB005457.
Once DeploymentPro is complete and confirmation is received, the Guardian process will end.
