You can use the push installation method to perform the following tasks:

For more information about the push installation method, see Installing software from WebUI (push installation).

You can modify the Deployment Manager settings from the Change Settings page.

Configuring default settings for Deployment Manager

On the Configuration page, click Server Settings.
Under Services, click Deployment Manager. In the Deployment Manager dialog box, configure the following settings.

Maximum simultaneously active deployment processes on server

By default, 50 concurrent deployment processes can run on the server.

To change the number of deployments that can be run in parallel at any time, type or select the new value.

Maximum time a deployment task should wait when processing a client

This setting determines the amount of time the Deployment Manager waits for a response from a remote client during the client addition phase.

The default value is 300 seconds. The timeout interval can be between 30 and 900 seconds.

Skip Remote Machine Cleanup

This setting lets users change the behavior of client-side log cleanup. By default, it skips cleanup on the remove target machine.

About Job Manager

The Job Manager process (nvjobmgr) runs on the NetVault Backup Server and manages the execution of a job.

The Schedule Manager starts the Job Manager. A single instance of Job Manager runs for each job until the completion of the job. The Job Manager reports on the job run status and exit status. This process coordinates with the Data Plug-in and fetches the required information from the NetVault Backup Server. It is also responsible for sending drive and media requests to the Media Manager process.

You can modify the Job Manager settings from the Change Settings page.
