Hi guys, looking for some advice please with regards to deploying SAM for a few hundred servers.
Would a mass deployment of agents work better (Agent Initiated) then run Network Discovery in SAM?
Once added will the same agent provide QoE stats as well?
The same agent will provide QoE stats as well. Many customers prefer to use group policies to mass deploy agents to servers - Mass deploy an agent on Windows using MST files and a Group Policy
In my environment, we ran into an issue while mass-deploying agents on Linux servers, rather than deploying through directly from SAM. The servers that we mass-deployed the agent to (using Salt) do not update the agent version when updating SAM. We have to manually push a command to these agents to force an update.
I'd suggest pushing the agent from SAM rather than mass-deployment by other means, just for simplicity in the future.
