Auto deploying Agent by Client Task??

Are there a way to Auto deploy McAfee Agent to systems synced from AD but not yet having a McAfee Agent by useing a Client Task. Right now i need to resort to this method: Creating a query that finds a list of systems, then create a server task that uses this query then deploys an agent... This seems odd as in the Client task there are the option to install Agent and much more flexible scheduler. Thanks in advance

Re: Auto deploying Agent by Client Task??

A client task can only be run by an existing agent, so you can't use one to deploy an agent for the first time. You *can* use a client deployment task to upgrade an existing agent, though, which is why you can see this option in the task settings.
