I have a new virtual server which I intend to configure as far as possible before my colleagues ‘clone’ it to provide me with multiple servers in different environments. The aim is to increase consistency and reduce the amount of access I need to the servers, and I will therefore want to put an Octopus Deploy Tentacle onto each to allow automated deployment.
I can either install the Tentacle once and have it cloned, or ask for access to all the clones to install each one separately. What is the best way to proceed to avoid any complications in Octopus recognising each individual server?
For extra info, I have always had to use the ‘Enter details manually’ option when adding the Tentacle to the Web Portal, the ‘Discover’ option has neve been able to get through the network to find the target servers.
