How to Push Watchman Monitoring Windows Agent

Posted: November 10th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Recently, I was granted access to the Windows beta agent. In a word, amazing. Truly, Allen and the guys at watchman have done an amazing job. Now, I have most of my clients enrolled in Meraki Systems Manager and I wanted to be able to push this agent to them without getting in the user’s face. I came up with the following and please keep in mind, I’m NOT a Windows sysadmin.


mkdir C:\temp
bitsadmin.exe /transfer "MSI" http://www.yourdomain.com/path/to/MonitoringClient.msi C:\temp\MonitoringClient.msi
bitsadmin.exe /transfer "regfile" http://www.yourdomain.com/path/to/monitoringclient.reg C:\temp\MonitoringClient.msi C:\temp\monitoringclient.reg
Regedit /s C:\temp\monitoringclient.reg
Msiexec.exe /I C:\temp\MonitoringClient.msi

I take this code and paste it line by line into the “Command Line” feature of Meraki Systems Manager.
