Deployment Tips (2)

Most Common Setup Type
Windows Installer (Delivered as an EXE)
Average Package Difficulty Rating
Rated 1 / 5 (Very Easy) based on 2 ratings
Most Commonly Reported Deployment Method
Repackaged (to a legacy setup.exe)
Single Package Managed Install for 32 and 64 bit SEP

1. Export the 32 and 64 bit installers from SEPM.  Both will be named setup.exe, and can not be renamed. Put 32 bit in SEP32 folder, 64 bit in SEP64 folder, and DO NOT rename executable.

2. Create a batch file and name it SEPM-Install.bat with the following content:

@echo off
start /wait SEP64\setup.exe
start /wait SEP32\setup.exe

3. Save at the level with the ./SEP32 and ./SEP64 directories, then zip all 3 into one file; I called mine SEP12-1-5337.zip This is what you will upload to KACE.

4. You can use this in a script or a managed install to detect the Program Files (x86) folder (allowing you to determine OS architecture) and install the correct version. I trialed the %processor_architecture% variable instead, but had inconsistent results because the KACE user agent is 32 bit. Call the batch in the in the script or install options to execute.

If using Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, export a 32 and 64 bit install of Symantec Endpoint with the settings you want. Rename the folders to something shorter like SEP32 and SEP64. DO NOT rename the setup.exe files. Setup will fail otherwise. Zip the two folders into SEPversion#.zip

Upload the zip file to your KACE software inventory to the proper version. Make sure you have all applicable versions of the OS selected.

Once done create a Managed Install and select the software from the drop down list. Choose the following settings:
Override Default Installation
Full Command Line: SEP32\setup.exe OR SEP64\setup.exe      <--- You will have two managed installs, a 32 and a 64 bit.
Don't prepend msiexec.exe

Choose whatever other settings you want and Save. 
Make sure to label the two managed installs as 32 and 64 bit.
