Enterprise Reporter 3.2.1 - Installation and Deployment Guide

Effectively Deploy Remote Nodes

You can deploy nodes from the Configuration Manager or manually. When you are deploying a node to a remote computer, factors such as firewall configuration and network latency can cause problems. In this case, you can deploy a node manually on the host computer. For more information, see Node Deployment Issues .

Deploying a Node to a Trusted Domain

When deploying a node to a trusted domain, the remote domain must trust the domain where the Enterprise Reporter Server is installed because the account that runs the node service has to authenticate to the Enterprise Reporter Server.

We strongly recommend deploying the Enterprise Reporter Node software on a computer that is local to the discovery targets - in this case, in the remote domain.

The Enterprise Reporter Service Account requires Local Administrator access to the remote node computers to deploy the node using the Configuration Manager.

The Enterprise Reporter Node service account has the following requirements.

When deploying a node to a trusted domain, the port requirements are the same as when deploying a node to a local domain. For more information, see Port Requirements .

Optimize Data Transfer

When you run a discovery for the first time, all of the data is collected and written to the database. For subsequent runs, only the changes are written. Determining the changes requires some processing, and you can choose the data source against which to compare the new data. You have two choices, and you may need to experiment to find the best setting for each cluster:

NOTE: Not all discovery types utilize the shared data location. For example, Active Directory®, Exchange™, and NTFS, do not use the shared data location to optimize on the number of collection tasks generated to collect the data in a more efficient manner.
