G DATA Administrator menu bar
Server setup wizard
The Server setup wizard lets you configure some of the most important settings of G DATA ManagementServer. It is automatically run the first time you start G DATA Administrator, but can also be started afterward under Servers > Overview and through the Admin menu.
All clients that are to be managed by the G DATA software must first be "enabled". To do this, highlight the clients to be enabled and click the Enable button. Some computers may not be included in the list (e.g. because they have not been switched on for a long time or have not set up File and Printer Sharing). To enable these clients, enter the name of the computer in the Computer input field. After clicking on Enable, the computer will appear in the client list. When all computers to be protected have been enabled, click on Next to move on to the next step. If you have enabled any clients, in the next step the checkbox Automatically install client software on the enabled computers is checked. If distribution of the software on the client computers is to occur at a later time, this option must be disabled by unticking it.
The next wizard steps help you configure some of the most commonly used settings:
- Internet update: Configure virus signature and program file updates. More information can be found in the Updates module.
- Email notification: Configure mail server settings, email groups and alarm notifications. More information can be found under General settings > Email.
- Settings for mobile devices: Configure mobile device management for Android. More information can be found under General settings > Android.
- Setting for access to G DATA ActionCenter: ActionCenter credentials are required to enable iOS device management and network monitoring. More information can be found in the ActionCenter module.
Click Finish to close the wizard. If you checked the option Automatically install client software on the enabled computers, the Server setup wizard will conclude by initiating the remote installation of G DATA Security Client for all selected machines.
