K2000 3.7.120345 Post Install task-Application

03/02/2017 2567 views

Greetings all,

Fairly new here and learning to with the KACE appliance.

I have worked through using a VM to create a fresh image for our team to deploy to end users in the company. I am now trying to create a simple post install task to install Symantec Endpoint Protection.

We are licensed for said software and I have downloaded the setup.exe. So far I have created a new task (application), uploaded the setup.exe and KACE required to put something in the parameters field so I have used /s for silent.

In testing, the image deploys all is good, but it seemingly "skips" the SEP install altogether.  I am looking for something I can continuously update fairly easy as new versions come up, just update the task.

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

The post task can be created with the msi file so it has all the correct parameters in the command line. 
"msiexec.exe/i sep.msi /passive /norestart RUNSCAN=0 RUNLIVEUPDATE=0ENABLEAUTOPROTECT=0"

The msi file along with a batch file with the command above can be zipped into an archive (be sure not to zip into a folder) and then on the command line call the .BAT file to run the install command.

  • I feel like I am close, but just missing it still. So far I have tried 1. Uploading the setup.exe and then adding "msiexec.exe/i sep.msi /passive /norestart RUNSCAN=0 RUNLIVEUPDATE=0ENABLEAUTOPROTECT=0" (without the quotes) in the parameters field. 2. Zipped up the setup.exe and a batch file with that command in it and simply placed "setup.bat" in the parameters field. What am I missing? And thank you all for the assistance. Very new to this part of it!

    Also does it matter is the installer is 64 bit? I peeked in the contents of the exe with 7 zip and there is a sep64.msi, but no sep.msi.

Thank you both for the assistance, I was able to get this working.

Now on to Adobe Reader and Java!
