Remotely installing the Console client

Once you have installed the Symantec Ghost Console, you can perform remote

client installations.

If the Ghost Console is running on a Windows Vista computer and you are having

problems installing the Console client to clients, then verify that the LAN Manager

authentication level setting on the Console computer is the same setting as the

setting on your client computers. The Console computer setting might be

incompatible with the setting on your client computers. The default level in

Windows Vista is Send NTLMv2 response only.

Note: On the client computer, the share C$ must be shared for administrative

purposes to allow remote client installation.

Note: In order to be able to uninstall a client remotely, the Console must contain

the actual name of the client and not an older name. To ensure this, run a Refresh

task on the client to update the client name in the Console.

To remotely install the Console client

1 On the Console server, on the Windows taskbar, click Start > Programs >

Symantec Ghost > Ghost Console.

2 On the Tools menu, click Remote Client Install.

3 In the Remote Client install dialog box, do one of the following:

Select the computers to include in the client installation, then click Add

>>.

You can select multiple computers under different domains.

Click Add..., then type the computer domain or workgroup and name.

You can add a group of computers in a workgroup that have the same

administrative credentials. If you have computers with different

administrative credentials for a workgroup, then each computer or group

of computers must be added separately.

4 In the Enter client domain and machine name dialog box, in the User name

field, do one of the following:

Type the administrator name for the domain.

Type the user name for a computer under the workgroup.

If you are adding a single computer then you can type the fully qualified
