The DeploymentServer requires information about the production and staging targets where assets are to be deployed. In order to provide this information you Define the Deployment Topology—that is, deployment targets and their individual servers where agents are installed. Before you do so, however, knowledge of the topology is required for several earlier steps in the deployment configuration process. For this reason, you should plan the deployment topology as the first step towards deployment setup.

You define a deployment topology in these steps:

  1. Identify Deployment Target Sites.

  2. Identify Deployment Agents.

  3. Plan Deployment Agent Responsibilities—for example, determine whether a given agent deploys repository or file assets.
