To use the Client Deployment Settings Wizard to install the Privilege Manager Client:

  1. Start the Client Deployment Settings Wizard.
    • To add the settings to any available GPO:
      1. Open the Console.
      2. Under the Getting Started section of the left navigation menu, click Setup Tasks.
      3. Select the Deploy Client Wizard icon in the Advanced Configuration pane on the right. It always shows the default settings.
    • To change the settings for a specific GPO, double-click Client Deployment Settings on the Advanced Policy Settings tab of the GPO. The changes made within the wizard are saved here.
  1. Choose one of the following options:
    • Not Configured: Enable child GPOs to inherit Client deployment settings from their parent.
    • Install Client: Install/upgrade Client software.
    • Remove Client: Remove Client software (for versions 3.0 and higher).
    • Unregister: Stop Client software installation GPO settings from applying.
  2. Click Next.
  3. Define the Server.
  1. Click the Browse button to locate a Server through Active Directory.
  2. Use the Test button to verify the selected Server's connection to the ScriptLogic PA Reporting Service. If the test fails, check to see if there are network or firewall problems.
  3. Click the Clear the server name link if you want to configure another Server. The displayed service remains installed.
  1. Click Next to use Validation Logic to target the settings to specific client computers or user accounts within the GPO, or click Finish to save your settings and quit.

    If an error message indicates that the target GPO is not selected:

    1. Click OK to close the message window.
    2. Open the GPO tab and select the desired GPO.
  1. Click Save on the GPO toolbar to save the new settings.
  2. Double-click Client Deployment Settings on the Advanced Policy Settings tab of the GPO to view the Client Deployment Settings.
  1. Check that the Client is successfully deployed onto the computer. Ensure that:

    • The CSEHost.exe process is running.
    • The Client record is shown in the Add/Remove Programs tool.
    • The Privilege Manager icon and the right-click menu are available in the system tray on the client computer.

    New GPO rules created by Privilege Manager are applied to Client computers following a group policy update.
