Installing Large Applications (> 2GB) from the RSA
For large applications (like Adobe CS4 and CS5) on the K2000 we're hosting the setup files on a shared server and we want to use the Remote Site Appliance itself as the server. We have 20+ RSAs in our school district. In the post installation task we need some way to build the drive mapping command so that it sets up the drive mapping based on the specific RSA on which the SI task is running.
Is there a way, in a batch file, to capture information about the RSA and use it to build this command? For example:
If machine name includes 'Bldg A' then the command is 'net use z: \\BldgA-Srv\apps . . . '
If machine name includes 'Bldg B' then the command is 'net use z: \\BldgB-Srv\apps . . . '
What we're trying to accomplish here is to avoid having to use the network to transport the huge collection of setup files for the task. We want the traffic to stay within the building where the RSA is located.
Has anyone ever done anything like this?
