Remote Install is one of the ways that you can install the CSA or SA of WFBS. This can be performed on client computers, except on computers where the Security Server is already installed.

To use Remote Install, you need administrator rights on the target computers. For Windows 7, Vista, Server 2008, Small Business Server 2008, and Essential Business Server 2008, you will need to use a built-in domain administrator password because of Windows User Account Control (UAC). Turn off the UAC in order to use a non-built-in administrator account.

To install the CSA or SA via Remote Install:

 
The SA will be installed by default in C:\Program Files\Trend Micro directory. If you want to install it on a different drive, refer to the article Changing the default client installation path of the Security Agent (SA).
  1. Log in to the WFBS console.
  2. Click Security Settings > Add. The Add Computer page appears.

    Add computer

  3. Under the Computer Type section, choose Desktop or server.

  4. Under the Method section, choose Remote install.
  5. Click Next. The Remote Install page appears.
  6. From the Groups and Computers list, select the computer on which you will install the CSA/SA and click Add. A prompt for a username and password appears.
     
    You need an account with administrator rights for the installation.

  7. Type the username and password of an account with administrator rights and click Login. For the domain computers, use the Domain_Name\Username format. For workgroup computers, use the Target_Computer_Name\Local_Administrator_User_Name format.
    The computer is added to the Selected Computers list.

    Log in to add selected computers

  8. Repeat Steps 6-7 if you want to add more computers to the list.
