Deploying PAL remotely to local desktops

Jan 8, 2013 at 8:27 PM

I was wondering if there was an easy way to deploy PAL remotely to local desktop, either through Powershell or .vbs. Any help would be great!

 

Thanks.

PAL v2.x requires the execution policy of PowerShell to be unrestricted and for the Microsoft Chart Controls to be installed. After that, you can simply copy the PAL installation directory to the computer you want it at.

Are you trying to deploy a data collector set using a PAL template, or the whole PAL install?

If just the data collector/template, I have some shortcuts to ideas on deploying here: http://vmtoday.com/scripts-free-tools/view-pal/

Yeah, kudos to you Josh for the VMWare template. It is a great addition to the tool and I know many people appreciate it. Keep in mind that users can mix and match threshold files to easily include your threshold files.

Getting back to shinjo's question... I recently wrote a PAL Collector PowerShell script that will scan the local computer, scan the PAL threshold files, then create a data collector using the threshold files that best matched. I posted an article and a link to the script at:
