Overview of Environments

When migrating objects, Deployment Management logs onto remote computers the same way any other user would (using FTP, SSH, or Telnet). Deployment Management can log on using any existing username and password, but We recommend that you generate a new user on each computer that Deployment Management is to access. This helps to clarify the setup and relieve some administrative burden.

Make sure that you have full access to the <PPM_Home> directory on the PPM Server and the correct read and write permissions on other required directories. On Windows® servers, the Administrators group must have read access to the PPM Server home directory. Any Windows server that Deployment Management accesses should be configured as described in the Installation and Administration Guide.
