Extended device discovery agents work well in a NAT environment. XDD is an option you can add to an agent configuration that makes the clients "listen" for ARP requests and notify the Core Server of unmanaged devices. You can read all you need to know at this article. http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-1424
Thanks Tom for reply,
I think by using XDD is take long time for clients to be discovered.
If the client is about 10.000 over, Is there any other way to speed up the descovery + deployment process?
Well Discovery and Deployment are two seperate activities. One common method of agent deployment, especially in a large organization would be to deploy the Advance Agent using Group Policy.
If most of your machines to be managed are on a domain you can also conduct an Unmanaged Device Discovery by polling LDAP. This is more effective if your company has a descent DNS tombstone policy.
If you are new to LANDesk and deploying to over 10k devices I strongly reccomend you consider bringing in a consultant to help. Contact your Expert Solution Provider (the people who sell you the LANDesk software) and ask them for assistance.
Well thanks Tom for the documents,
I do normally deployment of agent to over 5k nodes in AD/domain environment with LDAP or Group Policy you mentioned and it worked fine.
Anyway my scenario currently is the environment doesn't have Active Directory and those clients are behind of NAT with bandwith (64kb - 512kb).
Is there any additional solution for this scenario?
