This page assumes you have already run a network discovery task to identify unmanaged devices. Click here if you need to know how to discover devices.

We will perform the following steps to enroll the discovered devices:

  1. Create an installer (.msi) to install the Communication Client on each device.
     
  2. Use Comodo Auto-Deployment tool to deploy the installer.

1. Create an installation package

  • Click 'Devices' > 'Device List' > 'Bulk Installation Package'. Configure the package as required.


 

  • The ‘user’ field is auto-populated with your username. All devices will, therefore, be enrolled to you. You can assign them to different users later.
     
  • Remember to specify the correct company and the group you just created.
     
  • Choose the correct operating system for you targets. The ‘Hybrid’ package will service both 64-bit and 32-bit Windows systems. Alternatively, you can go through the wizard twice to create separate installers for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
     
  • You can omit ‘Comodo Client Security’ at this stage. The communication client is the important item here.
     
  • Click 'Download Installer' and save the .msi to your local machine.
     
    • Do not change the filename of the .msi. It is unique to this deployment.
       
  • Tip – also download the auto-deployment tool at the pop-up that follows. You will need this next.

2. Use Comodo Auto-Deployment tool to deploy the installer

  • Download ‘Comodo Auto Discovery and Deployment Tool' (ADDT). You can do this immediately after creating your .msi …


 

… or download it from the Comodo One/ Dragon: Log into C1 / Comodo One/ Dragon > Click 'Tools' in the top-menu > Click ‘Download’ in the ADDT tile.

  • Run ADDT. ADDT is a portable app which does not require installation. It lets you deploy the installer .msi via Active Directory, Workgroup or network address:


 

  • Click ‘Package’ and select the .msi installer file you just created.
     
    • If you created different installers for 32 bit and 64 bit, then upload each separately.
       
    • If you created a hybrid package, then deselect ‘Use separate packages for…’
       
  • Click ‘Next’ to move onto the deployment stage
  • Select ‘Network Addresses’ as the discovery selection type:


 

  • Enter the same IP range as you used in the discovery task.
     
  • Click 'Start Deployment' to install the .msi on the target devices. This will enroll the devices to Endpoint Manager to the customer/group you created earlier.
     
  • To view the enrolled devices in Endpoint Manager, click 'Devices' > 'Device List' > 'Group Management' > Company/Group
     
  • You can now assign the devices to new users, or move them to other groups, as required.
