What is MSP Toolshed?
MSP Toolshed is developed by MSP automation experts. The first of many modules: Configuration Manager is designed to save hours of time and improve setup consistency by automating your Windows endpoint configurations. Automate your machine setup process for only $299/month.
Save Hours and Make More on Machine SetupsKeep billing for machine setups, but completely eliminate the manual work. Make more profit and reduce the time you spend by over 80% using powerful and easy automation. Unpack it, boot it up, walk away!
Customizable to Each of Your ClientsAutomatically deploy your pre-configured software bundles and RMM agents with a unique software profile specific to the client.
No More Reinstalling SoftwareMonitor endpoints to ensure the software you installed stays installed. Report on problems or auto-remediate to reinstall the missing programs.
Configuration Manager brings a dynamic set of automatic machine setup tools, making it the first ready to go deployment solution ever created on the platform.
Fully Automated – Plug a USB drive into the machine, boot and hit enter. That’s it!
Mostly Automated – Put multiple deployment scenarios on a single USB, Plug the USB drive into the machine, boot, select the proper deployment, and hit enter. That’s it!
No Touch! – Dropship computers directly to a client, no need to build it in-house. Give the Office Manager or end-user a USB stick that they insert to get the machine provisioned.
Advanced Automated Naming Rules
Automatically name computers based on your criteria that are set up in advance.
- Serial Number
- Auto-Increment based on existing agent numbers
EZDeploy lets you leverage the power of your custom software configuration settings on new machines. This powerful tool handles both the installation of all the software titles by running through the specified configuration Profiles you create.
Attended Install: If you don’t use OneTouch, EZDeploy is just as easy. Click next, next, next on a new Windows machine to get to the desktop, run the EZDeploy utility, choose a configuration Profile, set the machine name, and click “Configure”.
Unattended Install: Image your machine with your favorite imaging tool and include our command-line EZDeploy tool with an encrypted password and just pass the Automate location ID.
EZDeploy will do the rest by installing the software profile of your choosing including patching the machine to the latest patch versions and rebooting. You can walk away, without having to watch the software install.
Finally, when it’s done, it will email you to let you know the machine is ready to be deployed to the end-user.
Remotely Join Active Directory
Included with your subscription is a utility allowing you to remotely join the machine to the client’s Active Directory domain.
You read that correctly. Join an Active Directory off-network without a VPN and stop having to join the machine when you take it on-site for deployment.
Customizable Software Profiles for Every Client
Our wizard-based Profile Builder uses name-based software selection to create scripting and automatically install the software you select. You can either have a unique profile for every client or select from existing profiles. You can even nest a special profile under any client for the Owner’s specific software needs.
Profiles are easy to create with the included search, drag and drop, and powerful Import Function allowing you to create a profile from an existing machine inventory. Imagine being able to build the machine once, create a Profile, and deploy that same configuration at will.
Monitor Machines for Profile Compliance
One of the most powerful functions of the Automate integration is the ability to monitor endpoints for compliance with the assigned software profile.
Be alerted with our monitoring when something goes missing. Leverage the built-in auto-remediation to reinstall software under that profile.
If you make changes to a profile or assign a machine a new profile, our tool takes over and remediates anything missing upon the next compliance check.

EZDeploy is an amazing little utility. All you need to do is to run it on a fresh Windows installation, enter authentication credentials to connect and select a software profile then watch the tool work. You can use the auto-naming rules or manually update the computer name.
After clicking “Configure” the tool does the rest. It will begin the full software installation based on the profile you selected.
Plus, if you have selected for that machine to be joined to the Client’s domain, our tool will remotely join that machine to the proper domain.
You’ll spend more time taking the new computer out of the box than you will on setup!
Yes, it does.
All that is required is the client must have a domain, there must be an Automate Agent installed on the domain controller and you need to have the option to automatically join the domain in the Profile. That’s it.
We can’t tell you exactly how we do it as that would spoil the magic.
This is an incredibly powerful tool at an amazing price. There are no limits on how many times you can run the EZDeploy utility or how many machines you monitor. It’s all included in the price!
Currently, our subscriptions are month-to-month. If you decide you want to suffer by setting up machines manually, you can cancel your subscription and use it until the next renewal period.
