Hello,

Can someone help me run a scripted install for Sophos on our images? I believe there is no MSI, just an EXE.

Thanks!

  • Sophos Enterprise?
    • Sorry, no. Sophos Endpoint Protection. I am fairly new at this and was told today we were going to swap over. We had Norton originally.

If you include SOPHOS as part of an image you must follow these instructions

I do not and instead deploy it after the fact as a GPO or K1000 Managed Install using KACE. I do use a batch file for that. I can share mine if you would like.

We did our Sophos update a few ago and I followed this article sent to us by Sophos...

https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/120560

did a -q on the exe file for the silent install and it all went fine

if you wanted to use a bat file in scripting...

REM Sophos Central Installer

SET MCS_ENDPOINT=Sophos\Management Communications System\Endpoint\McsClient.exe
IF "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%" == "x86" GOTO X86_PROG
IF NOT EXIST "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\%MCS_ENDPOINT%" GOTO INSTALL
exit /b 0

:X86_PROG
IF NOT EXIST "%ProgramFiles%\%MCS_ENDPOINT%" GOTO INSTALL
exit /b 0

:INSTALL
\\SERVER\SophosUpdate\SophosInstall.exe -q
exit /b 0
