Is it possible to configure/modify the KBOX Agent Installer for MAC to auto populate the server name of our server. It defaults to just "kace" and it would be nice if it could by modified/configured to autopopulate with our server just to reduce the possiblity of typos. A majority of our users will be installing via a link to the dmg and running the .pkg file to install from the user portal. I would like to automate the whole process for a MAC, but I don't see a way to get the .pkg file wihout using a dmg. Any help is appreciated.

if "kace" redirected to your true host name then, after checking in with the server, the agent would change itself to use the settings configured in the k1000

That would work for internal machines. We have a lot of users that will be installing outside of our network.

For customizing the Mac Agent you can view the contents of the Agent if you open the package and customize it (open our dmg, copy the pkg file to their Desktop, then right click, Show Package Contents. copy and overwrite the scripts in the package, or use PackageMaker to further customize it. )

in 5.3 (if you call support) you can do the following to automate the install and set the host name.


hdiutil attach ./ampagent-5.3.xxxxx-all.dmg
export KACE_SERVER=k1000name
sudo installer -pkg '/Volumes/Dell KACE/AMPAgent.pkg' -target /
hdiutil detach '/Volumes/Dell KACE'

Could you please help me identify where the parameter is located that identifies "Server Name" at the first screen of the installer? I have reviewed the scripts and also opened with Packagemaker and cannot find that information.

Is 5.3 available for upgrade yet?
