Assign CapaInstaller Administrator

This Active Directory group is added with read/write access to the folders containing the Management points.

Default Management Point

When set, this will determine what Management Point computers and devices will enroll in by default.

If no Management Point is set in an Enrollment Configuration for the device it will use the Default Point.

Agent Service communication ports

The agent service will respond to requests on these ports.

Patch Management Service communication ports

The CapaInstaller Console will communicate with the Patch Management Service via these ports


Performance Guard

The first three settings specify how long the different performance data should be kept in the CapaInstaller database. The fourth setting specifies the number of minutes, on the y-axis on the graph showing startup/logon times

Synchronization port

Synchronization services use this port to communicate in internal network environments

Synchronization Settings

With more than one server requesting the same package it is advisable to reuse the compressed files. This means that a package after being compressed and transferred to the requesting server remains on the source server for a specified period of time before being deleted.
You can specify how long the compressed files are kept. On re-request, the lifetime of the compressed file is reset to the initializing value. 
Since this approach can cost extra free space on the source server, you can also specify a minimum free space to remain free. If the amount of free space falls below the threshold, the reuse of compressed files is disabled.

Agent user access

Since distribution servers are often installed as stand-alone servers, the agent cannot connect with its LocalSystem credentials, and therefore needs additional credentials to access shares.
Enabling “agent user access”, will allow the agent to connect to the shares with the specified local user credentials. This user account will be created on the distribution server and granted rights to access necessary files and shares during the deployment of the distribution server.
You must manually ensure that the user exists or is added to the "CapainstallerAgents" group on existing Distribution Servers.

AMT Settings

In order to perform AMT operations, credentials for AMT must be configured. A username and password that match the configurations on the AMT enabled machines must be supplied. The checkbox below these credentials determines whether or not the replicator will attempt to use AMT in the wake on lan requests it receives. The replicator will always send a standard WOL package on these requests, and will in addition to this, attempt an AMT WOL if this setting is enabled.

Wake on LAN settings

Choose what port should be used by services sending Wake On LAN Requests, if not set the default port (40000) is used

Notification Settings

Here you can specify which parts of the system should be monitored by the "System Health" task. If disabled, no notifications will be created for that part of the system.

Self Service

Here you can specify the url for the Self Service Portal and enable token authentication for devices and users when using Self Service
