Deploying a Package with the Command Line Interface

You can utilize the Command Line Interface (CLI) from a common cmd.exe window to deploy a PDQ Deploy package. You must change the directory to the PDQ Deploy directory under Program Files or Program Files (x86). The command you use is PDQDeploy.exe.

To start a manual deployment using the CLI:

1.Run cmd.exe as Administrator.

2.(Optional) To view the options available for PDQ Deploy using the CLI, use the following:

PDQDeploy Help

3.To deploy a package, use the following command:

PDQDeploy Deploy -Package "<name of package>" -Targets <computer names>

The example below shows the Java 8 Update 51 package deployed to the target computers named aikau, v32-01, and archie. Note that target computer names are delimited by spaces.

NOTE: When you use the PDQDeploy Deploy command, you are limited to manually listing individual target computers. However, using the PDQDeploy StartSchedule <schedule ID> command, you can deploy to Target Lists, PDQ Inventory collections, etc. that are already defined in a PDQ Deploy Schedule. For more information, see Starting a PDQ Deploy Schedule from the CLI.
