Setting up additional Management Suite consoles

The Management Suite console is automatically installed on the core server. This console should be installed on LANDesk administrator’s machines that need full functionality or access to all the Management Suite tools. The console is used to interact with the various Management Suite features, for example, to distribute software, remotely control managed devices, view inventory information, and perform other management functions.

For additional utility and functionality, consoles can be installed throughout the network. (LANDesk Software doesn't charge extra for additional consoles.)

To install an additional console
  1. From your Management Suite installation media, launch the autorun.
  2. Click the Remote console button.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. If the prerequisite check passes, click Continue. Otherwise, fix the missing prerequisites.
  5. Click Run setup.
  6. Follow the installation prompts.
