How to Install, Uninstall, or Update Software on Remote Hosts

Who can use this feature? The One2Many feature is available to any Account Holder of a LogMeIn Central Premier subscription and to users in a Premier account with the following permissions: Create and Modify One2Many tasks (to be able to create tasks) and Run One2Many tasks (to be able to assign tasks to plans and run them).

Important: This type of task can only be deployed to Windows hosts.
  1. In LogMeIn Central, go to the One2Many > Tasks page.
  2. Click Create Task. The Create Task page is displayed.
  3. Select Install or update software.

    Note: If you are not using an MSI installer, you should use the Run a batch file or executable task type.
  4. Name the task in the Task name field. Since you may end up with many saved tasks, be sure to use a clear and specific name.
  5. To locate and upload resources required to complete the task, click Browse....
  6. Enter valid MSI parameters under Optional Parameters. To uninstall software, select the Uninstall option.
    Important: Installs must run silently and cannot require user input.
    Note: The Full command field shows you the exact command that will be sent to your hosts. Use it to confirm that the syntax of the command matches your expectations.
    Tip: Consult the Windows Installer SDK for additional documentation on command line syntax.
  7. Choose whether to assign a plan now, or later:
    • To save your task and create a new plan that will be used to run the task, click Save and continue
    • To save the task without assigning a plan, click Save and close (you will be able to assign a plan later)

    See How to Create a Plan for Executing One2Many Tasks to continue.

Tip: Once you have assigned a task to a plan and have run the plan, you can monitor progress and view logs on the One2Many > Plans page. You can view logs for completed tasks on the One2Many > History page.
