    Purpose:

    Prerequisites:

     

    • You will need to have the following component patch or greater before being able to deploy an agent to a Windows 10 device:  2015-0722
    • This is a 9.6 SP2 component patch that is available here: Support for Windows 10 in LDMS 9.5 and 9.6

     

    Task Setup and Agent Deployment:

     

    • Under the "Agent Configuration" area in the console, right click the desired agent and select "Schedule agent deployment".  This will create a task and allow you to drag devices into it to deploy to them.
