Adding Devices for Quick Installation

The time has come to say goodbye to Cove Data Protection (Cove)'s classic dashboard UI. The classic UI will be retired in July. We encourage you to switch to our new dashboard UI as soon as possible for the best dashboard experience.

To add devices for Quick Installation (automatic deployment), follow the below steps:

  1. Log in to the Console under a SuperUser account belonging to a reseller or end-customer
  2. Click Add devices, select Servers of Workstations
  3. Select the customer to install the device for from the dropdown
  4. Select a backup profile (optional)
  5. Backup profiles let you configure multiple devices for backup simultaneously (learn morelearn more).

  6. Select the operating system for the device
  7. Click Next
  8. Download the installation package from the download link and take a note of the installation package name
  9. Do not change the installation package name from the one provided on your dialog. This is because the package name is a unique identifier for the specific customer and doing so would stop the installation from functioning appropriately.

  10. Click Finish
  11. Run the Installation package on the device where the backup is required
  12. If the installer does not run after downloading, check the file has not been renamed by your system and check properties of the install file to ensure that it has not been blocked by your system upon download. Attempt to run as the Administrator on the device.

Ways to run the installation package:

  • Double-click on the installer executable
  • Submit the name of the installer to a terminal emulator or a software distribution system. For example: demobm#a55x00rf-d604-429e-lf87-n800004e755#5038#.exe

Please note, the installer name will be specific to you.
