I was wondering what would be the best way to setup Adobe Creative Cloud (MAC OSX) for User download for Dell Kace? I have created PKG files for All Adobe Creative Cloud Apps.

When deploying Adobe cc, we ended up creating a tar.gz of the entire suite, hosted it on a network share as it was 14 gb and then ran unix commands to extract and install it.

  • This was done using a managed install. Forgot to mention that
    • Thank you. Have you done anything like this for on demand?
      • On demand should not be a bid deal, so long as they have access to the network share. Here is the command we run for the MI.

        sudo tar zxvf FacultyDISTROupdatesenabled.tar.gz && sudo installer -pkg FacultyDISTROupdatesenabled/Build/FacultyDISTROupdatesenabled_Install.pkg -target / && rm -rf FacultyDISTROupdatesenabled/ && rm -rf FacultyDISTROupdatesenabled.tar.gz
Here is the documentation I created for my team. Note that we actually use the alternate download location functionality which allows us to manually install the packages more easily. I removed those steps from the instructions posted, however.

  • Thank you. Have you done anything with deploying via scripting. I would like to make this an on demand option.
    • Once you have the managed installations in place you can setup the user downloads for them to download the disk images, they would have to run the install themselves. You should also be able to create a script that will kick off the installation using the Install software option in a KScript and then make the script available in the user portal.
