Automated deployment of the Datto RMM Agent using third-party tools

If you have just started with Datto RMM, you will first need to create sites to associate your devices with. Then, you will need to deploy Agents to your devices so that you can see your devices in those sites within the platform. Refer to Creating or editing a site and Installing the Datto RMM Agent on servers, desktops, and laptops. This can take considerable time, especially if you are coming from an alternative solution and you have a number of customers, clients, or sites set up, as well as devices/agents for that solution already deployed. Fortunately, both of these processes have been largely automated for you so that you are able to begin using Datto RMM as quickly and easily as possible, with the Datto RMM Onboarding Accelerator tool.

IMPORTANT  For more information on using the Datto RMM Onboarding Accelerator to create your sites or deploy your Agents at scale, please contact your Account Manager or Implementation Manager.

This tool is useful for you if:

  • You are not integrating with Autotask or ConnectWise PSA, and hence have no way to create your sites at scale, and/or
  • You have one of the following third-party tools that can be used for Agent deployment:
    • N-able N-central (formerly Solarwinds N-central, N-able)
    • N-able N-sight (formerly N-able RMM, Solarwinds RMM, LogicNow, GFI Max RMM, HoundDog)
    • ConnectWise Automate (formerly LabTech)
    • Kaseya VSA
    • ConnectWise Command (formerly Continuum RMM)
    • Ninja One (formerly Ninja RMM)
