EBS 2008 - Adding new clients

What is the best way to add a new client system into a network with EBS?  We have most of this in GPO's but I thought I would ask and see what the common view, alogn with what you think should be the correct BKM

Add new user under EBS Administration Console on Management Server.

I however have a messed up Admin Console that I can't seem to fix. So I add the user on the messaging server (so I can create the mailbox and the AD user at the same time, then flip back to the management server and assign that user the licence.)

So there is the Wizard way. (If it works, by far the easiest)
The Manual way. (Which seems easy, but you have to assign the user a license... if you don't they can't log on.)

That adds the user, not the client computer.  What do you think is the best way to add the client computer?  To get the SCE agents installed, then system needs to be scanned.  I'm thinking there is an easier way to do this.

currently you have...
1.  add users (wizards or whatever)
2.  Add computer tothe AD
3.  Add the user computer tothe domain
4.  Wait for a scan to deploy the SCE agent

Does not seem the correct way to do this..

Generally on computers I don't make them in AD, but just when im installing the new system it automatically does it for me when I add it to the domain.

Hi there,

Follow the best practice as outlined here;
(This will install the management agent on the clients)

For additional client management please follow the guides as required for you're configuration.
