By using a deployment task, you can perform deployment in either of these ways:

  • Deployment to a specified list of machines. Acronis Snap Deploy will use the Wake-on-LAN functionality to wake up the machines that are turned off and thus are not ready for deployment.
  • Deployment as soon as a specified number of any machines become ready for deployment. You (or users in your organization) will need to make the machines ready.
  • Or you can run any deployment task manually from the Deployment tasks view.

Do the following to create a deployment task:

  1. Start the Acronis Management Console, connect to OS Deploy Server if needed, and click Deploy image:
