Installing the Symantec Management Agent for Windows with a manual push

Client Management Suite

You can push Symantec Management Agent to any Windows computers. Before you can manually install or uninstall Symantec Management Agent from the Symantec Management Agent Install page, you need to choose the target computers. You can enter the computer names manually, choose the computers that have been discovered with resource discovery, or import the computers from a CSV file. The CSV file is a comma-delimited text file. The file includes the DNS names or the IP addresses of the client computers on which you want to install Symantec Management Agent. For Windows computers, the CSV file is a list of computer names or IP addresses that are imported into the Symantec Management Agent Install page. Items are interpreted as the names of computers or the IP addresses of computers (for the entries that are in the appropriate format). No spaces are allowed: any item that contains a space is ignored.

You can manually install Symantec Management Agent only on the computers that were discovered using Domain Resource Discovery or Network Discovery.

This task is a step in the processes for installing the Symantec Management Agent on Windows computers.
