Deploying Containers

The deployment tool, Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.exe deploys the Container from a file share, or local directory, that the executable resides on to the server or desktop the command is executed from. The deployment tool can be used from electronic deployment  systems, like SCCM.  The Container will be deployed to the folder specified on the command  line, this is optional and if not specified the Container will run from its current location which can be on a file share. If the specified deployment folder already exists, and a Container is present then the contents of the Container will be overwritten.


c:\> %path to container%\Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.exe /acceptEULA /deploydir "c:\path name\"  /deploytype [machine | user] [/usagelocation \\path\to\reporting]

If the /deploytype is not specified, then the deployment tool will default to machine deployment.

Usage Reporting

Containers will default to https usage reporting, and will report an error if there is an invalid, or missing tokenThe reporting token is encrypted by the machine when the Container is deployed, Containers may report usage to fileshares, if the /usagelocation option is specified at deployment time. Note The usagelocation must exist at deployment time, the deployment tool will not create the specified path on the UNC share.

Full details are available in Licensing & Reporting‍. 

Container Permissions

The Container inherits any permission from the parent folder for the folder that is created, C:\ProgramFiles\<ContainerID>.
