PDQ SD Client Install?

Recommended Posts

So you can deploy the SD Client out to any machine easily using PDQ but there doesn't appear to be a way to tell each PC the Host name. Even with GPO you still need ot visit each machine manually to update that xml file. Anyone find a better way of doing this? Can't fly to London and update 300 machines manually - looks like I'll have to remote to every C: drive and updated the xml file at this point...

Hi there,

There is a script to automate this process - you can review Network Deployment starting on P. 39 in the User's Guide. The section on deploying with Group Policy (which includes the script that you can download and modify to specify the host name) is on P. 43.

If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to reach out to support (at) smartdeploy.com.

I am having the same issue. Is there a command line that can be executed on each target computer from PDQ Deploy (not group policy) that will tell each PC the Host name.  I have copied the SD Client to all my target computers but I still have to remote in to launch the client and enter the Host name.
