Deploying System States to Clients

Last Modified: June 25, 2020

Create a system state to deploy the same set of packages across systems.

A state is any set of packages installed on a system. After you define a state, you can apply it to other systems to more quickly deploy packages to multiple systems.
  1. In NI SystemLink Web Client, in Systems Manager, click Managed systems.
  2. Double-click the system from which you want to create a state.

    You can also manually define a state under Systems Manager» System states» Create.

  3. Click Options » Create State .
  4. Review all the feeds your system is connected to and the packages installed on it to ensure you want to include them in the state.
  5. Specify the workspace the state belongs to. Only users in the workspace you specify can use the state. You can reassign the state to another workspace at any time.
  6. Optional: Customize the state to include additional packages in your state that are not currently installed on the system. Specify the feeds you need to access the additional packages you want to include.
    1. Under Feeds, click Add.
    2. Specify a feed from a package repository, a URL, or the ni.com Downloads page.
    3. Check the box for each package you want to include in your state.
  7. Click Create to finalize the state.
  8. In Managed systems, select the systems you want to apply the state to.
