-Deploying Live Navigator Windows Agents 
-You can deploy Live Navigator agents through a network onto multiple agent using a software distribution and deployment tool such as Microsoft Group Policy Object (GPO), SCCM, LANDesk, Altiris, etc. 
-To use such tool, you need to create an *.msi deployment file from the Live Navigator agent install program. Then you can use the deployment tool on your domain to deploy this *.msi file on all required agents. 
-Note When you configure your GPO for deployment, make sure you have the WMI 32 bit and 64 bit filters to deploy Live Navigator according to the operating system of your agent. 
-The procedure below lets you create a deployment file for the Live Navigator agents containing the following default installation and database directories:​ 
-■ The default installation directory: C:\Program Files\Atempo\Atempo Live Navigator\ 
-■ The default database directory: C:\HNDB\ 
-Note The only parameter that you will need to set later, either directly in the ALN.msi file or when deploying, is the name of the Live Navigator server that will protect the data on the agent, as there is no default value for this parameter. In addition you can also set the installation and database directory if the default value does not suit you. See “Deploying the Live Navigator Agents”, page 30.

-Setting the Server Name Variable in the Deployment file +

-1. In the directory where you created the ALN.msi file, open the file C:\Program Files\Atempo\Atempo Live Navigator\Ref\CfgServerHost.def ​with a text editor. +
-2. Replace ​the existing ​line with the connection string of the Live Navigator server that will protect the data of your agents. +
-The server connection string is in the form: <​servername>:<​encrypted port>:<​unencrypted port>  See“Agent Ports and Proxy Configuration”,​ page 39, for details. +
-3. Save and close the file. +
-You can now use the ALN.msi file to deploy Live Navigator on your agents. They will +
-be protected by the Live Navigator server specified in the file CfgServerHost.def. Note You must place the ALN.msi file as well as the program files directory on +
-the domain server in order to be able to deploy using GPO. +
