The add-on module “Active Directory Manager” allows you to distribute software also based on Active Directory groups!
With the Active Directory Manager, software packages (jobs) can be linked to Active Directory groups via drag & drop in the management console of Install.Desk and thus a basic configuration can be defined per group. A distinction can be made between installation and uninstallation jobs.
If an existing computer is moved from one group to another, Install.Desk automatically starts exactly those jobs that have been linked to the groups involved: According to the diagram, software of group A that is no longer needed is uninstalled and software of group B that is needed is installed. If a new computer joins a group, it automatically receives the base configuration defined for the group.
This always ensures that the clients receive exactly the applications that are needed for the respective task area! In addition, the effort for administration is reduced considerably.
