Managed silent install of Arc GIS 10.7.1
I am trying to install Arc GIS through Kace with a managed silent install. I went to their site and used the parameters listed.
setup.exe ADDLOCAL=ALL ESRI_LICENSE_HOST=arclicense.server.edu SOFTWARE_CLASS=Professional SEAT_PREFERENCE=Float DESKTOP_CONFIG=TRUE INSTALLDIR1=C:\python27 /qb
I have a zip file uploaded for the associated file.
I just started using Kace so I am a newb. I have successes with some smaller packages.
So create a zip file, using a proprietary zip product such as winzip, not windows zip. Keep the directory structure as per the installation files and make sure the zip file is named with a .zip extension.
Attach your zip file to the software inventory item that appears in your inventory record when the software is installed.
Create the Managed Installation, override the default command and use the silent installation command that you got from the manufacturer.
KACE should download and unpack the zip in a temp directory, then run the command, so you may also want to tick the box in the managed installation that removes the installation files once complete
