Software Deployment Question

How to deploy Cisco Systems VPN Client and apply profiles?

10/07/2015 2142 views
I'm new to KACE (K2000) so I'm looking for a little guidance because I havent found the answer on this site yet. I am trying to create a post installation task that installs the VPN Client and applies to profiles (.pcf). I havce the .msi installer and created a post install task for an application like I have done for other software and used: msiexec /i vpnclient_setup.msi HOST=spcfrkkbox02 /qn. I just dont know how to get the profiles applied after the installation. Can someone help guide me or tell me a better way to do this altogether?

  • is this a scripted install or image deployment?
  • Image deployment I believe? Its a post installation task to the imaging process.
    • install the vpn client to your user in the master image you create and then copy that profile to default during sysprep
      • Hmm....we dont want it to be part of the image. I'm looking for a way for it to be installed as a post installation task. That way we can remove the task if needed without having to create another image or have multiple images.

post installation task (zip file with all file i need and add)

create vbs script -> cscript vpn_client.vbs

On Error Resume Next
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /i vpnclient_setup.msi /qn /norestart",2
WshShell.run "cmd  /C COPY yourprofiles.pcf C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles",2

  • Thanks. I believe this is more what I am looking for. When you are sitting up the Post Install Task, do you select "add a Windows script"?
