Does anyone know how to schedule deployment of the Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 Protection Agent on to the servers to be protected?

Since installing the agent requires a reboot and brief interruption to the network connection, we would like to deploy it out of hours.

You can deploy the agent during office-hours from the DPM-console, but uncheck the "reboot now" checkbox. Then you can schedule a reboot off-hours.

If you want to install the agent manually or with another deployment software (SCCM for instance), take the client from \\yourDPMserver\c$\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\agents\RA\3.0.7706.0\amd64\1033 and deploy using following commands: DPMAgentInstaller_AMD64.exe /q yourdpmserver.fqdn as described in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff399459.aspx and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb870935.aspx

These are things I had already thought about trying. I was asking the question to see if there was an easier way to do it.
