Adding Managed Installation tasks

Adding Managed Installation tasks

On the KACE Systems Management Appliance, Managed Installations (MI) are the primary mechanism for deploying applications to managed devices. Each Managed Installation is associated with a specific application title, version, and its command line. For complete information about Managed Installations, see the KACE Systems Management Appliance Administrator Guide.

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance has a mechanism to install applications as part of the deployment process. Importing a Managed Installation from the KACE Systems Management Appliance allows you to quickly add it to a system deployment task sequence, when needed.
