Scripting Question

Deploying Office 2019 for Mac Kace

01/14/2020 134 views

Has anybody used Kace to deploy Office 2019 packages that also use the volume license serializer?  If so how did it go.  I was thinking of just creating a dmg of the Office 2019 pkg file and the serializer and deploy that way.

Yes, we have deployed 2019 using a script. I generally prefer managed installs, but the software catalog doesn't detect Office 2019 for macOS as an application suite, so a script is easier. I use a customized version of this tool to build the package:


The script will build a DMG file containing the latest Office 2019 installer and the serialization package all in one. I modified my version to download and install the latest Office package so whenever we push the script the machine gets the latest version. We also use the same script for new machines.
