We suggest you to create a Group Policy Login Script pointing to the DLO installation executable file.
Alternatively you may create an answer file to install DLO Agent via Group Policy. ================================================ The installation files for the Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) Desktop Agent get copied when installing DLO from the Backup Exec installation CD. The share called DLOAgent automatically gets created on the media server that contains the installation files for the DLO Desktop Agent. Please refer the following technote for more information on the same:

1) running through login script works ugly because there is not easy way to check if it is installed when run it at second time, also interactive installation screen will lead users to everywhere, I havn't found command line options for silent installation.
2) Can you guild me where to find the "answer file" for install DLO agent via group policy ?
To solve the registry problem use the following .adm to create a Group Policy Option to set the server name. (There is lots of info around about how to install this but if you need more details ask)
CATEGORY "DLO" POLICY "Default Server Name" KEYNAME "Software\VERITAS\DLO\2.0\Client" PART "DefaultMediaServer" EDITTEXT REQUIRED VALUENAME "DefaultMediaServer" DEFAULT !!DLO_SERVER END PART END POLICY END CATEGORY
Step 1: Create the ADM Create the .adm file by putting the text above into a text file called DLO.adm (Replace Hostname with the server name)
Step 2: Add ADM Template to Group Policy Edit the Group Policy you have created to Deploy DLO. Under Computer Configuration right click on Administrative Templates. Choose Add/Remove Template add the DLO File you just created.
Step 3: Enable the display of Custom Reg Settings Click on Administrative Templates so you can see all the list of folders in the right pane. Right click on the background of this pane and choose view > Filtering. Uncheck the Only Show Policy Settings that can be fully managed. Click OK.
Step 4: Enable the Policy Under Administrative Templates you should now see a DLO folder inside that is Default Server Name Object. Double click it and choose enable, if you didn't change the name in step 1 you can now or change it to any server you want.
Sit back and watch DLO deploy with no need for a startup script
