Manage distribution ZIP FILE KACE SMA
we installing a file to the client packaged in a zip and attaching it to the software title. how to do it anyone have any suggestions.
I marked yellow for bat installer
when the manual install method
- run bat file
1. zip the folder with 7-zip (with some older versions the Windows built in zipper had some issues)
2. create a MI and run just the bat file in it. The Deployment will be unzipped automaticly.
Alternatively you can use Scripting to run the batch file and add all nessesary files to it without a zip.
Niko missed off, always name the zip file .zip, as a .3gr or .rar file extension will not work.
Also when Niko says run the batch file in the MI, he means in the MI tick "Override default installation" and then also select "Don't prepend msiexec" making your command line your batch file command.
final gotchas for MI's make sure your file is attached to the correct Software Inventory or Catalog item and make sure that the OS of the target device for you MI is selected as supported, shown in the grey box below the Installation Options section.
