  • I Have tried using this one and keep getting an error.

    msiexec.exe /qn /i ampagent-5.4.5315-x86.msi HOST=name_of_K1000

    Error:the installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package.

    It work if i try to install it manually with the installer but not in the command line.

Give this one a try:  It talks a about GPO deployment but the agent would be modified in the same way for deployment through a K2000 post installation task.

This is the line from my k2000 post scripts to install the client

start /wait msiexec /qn /i "\\10.16.19.27\client\agent_provisioning\windows_platform\ampagent-5.4.5315-x86.msi" HOST=kbox.tmcc.edu

Hello,

 

in my opinion the best way is the following:

  1. Take the agent MSI installer from the CLIENT share of your K1000 [ \\k1000\client\agent_provisioning\windows_platform ]
  2. copy it somewhere
  3. rename it appending the name of your K1000 in this way: ampagent-5.3.53177-x86_k1000.kace.local.msi where k1000.kace.local in this example is the FQDN of your K1000. Remember the _ (underscore)!!
    So to recap is FILENAME + _ + FQDN of your K1000 + .msi (no spaces anywhere!)
  4. Create a new Postinstallation task of Agent Installation type where you will upload the MSI and that will use this command:
    msiexec /i ampagent-5.3.53177-x86_k1000.kace.local.msi /quiet

 

Kind regards,
