Pulseway Manager without agent

Recommended Posts

Hi

Is it possible to install the Pulseway manager without installing the agent.

Would like to use the Manager on a laptop that doesn't need to be monitored, allowing me to change the config of agents on remote PCs.

Hi Andy,

A better option would be to use the Pulseway Dashboard (from the Downloads page, in the Desktop Apps tab) which can also change the configuration of remote PCs.

Hi Andy,

Unfortunately no, but you can use Pulseway Group Policies (see page 19 of the User Manual) however they are configured from the Pulseway Manager which brings us back to the original question. After you install the Pulseway agent on your computer, do not enter your credentials when Pulseway Manager pops up at the end of the installation and then open the command prompt as an administrator and type in this command:

sc delete "PC Monitor"

This will delete the Pulseway service registration and you will be able to use the Pulseway Manager without registering as a monitored system.

      Hi Guys,
       
      Not sure if this has been requested before so apologies in advance if it has. I had a customer with a slow PC and wanted to add the Disk Queue Length performance counter to see if that was causing the slowness however didn't want to have to log into her machine. Normally I would go via the Dashboard -> Edit Computer Settings and make whatever changes were necessary. However Performance Counters can't seem to be added this way as there is no Add button:

       
      Is this a bug or missing feature? If it's missing, it would be handy to have as you can pretty much do everything else from here and it's not always convenient having to log into the users machine
      Cheers

      I'm reasonably new to PW. I've just on-boarded 50 endpoints, and it automatically monitors Automatic services. That great, but Services like Bio-metric and Remote Registry; whilst configured as automatic, aren't always started.. So constant notifications.
      I know how to remove the service monitor, but is there an easy way to exclude certain services from being monitored globally?

      iptime Broadband Route is in use. I'm trying to boot my computer from a cell phone to a cell phone.
      For example, the DDNS address provided in iptime Broad Bridge is referred to as ABC.iptime.org
      Is there any way to boot the computer from outside?
      Currently, it doesn't work well if you want to boot your computer and boot from the outside to the outside of your computer. However, it works well with other applications.

      In the active directory module we can see users that are locked out, is it possible to add users with expired passwords as well. 
      Instead if searching for a user sometimes I just want to see a list of users, would it be possible to show all users Instead of searching for them?
      Reason being it's a quick way to help clients with expired passwords and a quick way to see any abnormal accounts in AD.

      Hello,
      we'd like to move our pcmonitor database from the current SQL Server (2014 Standard) in one Domain to another SQL Server (2016 Enterprise) in a different domain. The Pulseway Enterprise/Admin Server won't change and is already a member of the target domain.
      As far as I remember the process would be:
      Stop Pulseway Services Backup DB on old SQL Server Create SQL Login for the Service on the new SQL Server Restore DB on new SQL Server Edit the connectionstring in the Registry (HKLM\SOFTWARE\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor Admin\DatabaseConnectionString) The connection string is encrypted - what would be the required format? Edit the connectionstring in the Hosting folder for the follwing web.config files ..\Hosting\Service\web.config Start Pulseway Services Did I miss anything important? If not, all I'd need would be the format of the connectionstring in the registry
      Cheers, Jonathan
