Before starting integrated mass deployment (IMD), you must decide if you want to activate the inSync Client only on the first laptop that the user logs on to or on all laptops that the user logs on to. The latter is beneficial in scenarios where employees have multiple laptops allocated to them. If you enable the activation of the inSync Client only on the first laptop, users with multiple laptops have to manually log on and activate the inSync Client on their subsequent devices.
To select the type of mass deployment
- On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click > inSync Settings.
- Click the Deployment tab, and under Mass Deployment, click Edit. The Edit Settings window appears.
To activate inSync Client only on the first system that the user logs on to, select Activate only the first device for every user.
If you leave Activate only the first device for every user cleared, inSync Client will be activated on all the systems that the user logs on to.
Select Prompt user if device mapping not defined to enable the following when the user-to-device mapping is not defined on the inSync Management Console:
inSync administrator and the inSync Client user can define the device behavior.
inSync Client user can either replace an old device or add a new device as an additional device.
