yeah, i did mine with a login script. happy
I'd be very interested in seeing that script as we're having issues with that...
Would it be possible to share it here ?
We are using SMS 2003 for this, and it works like a charm...
i would love to share it here but unfortunately, my boss is the one controlling it. as such, i'm not too sure of the exacts in the script but if i'm not wrong, she does the following :
1. runs the script in admin mode
2. installs the agent
I'd also be curious to learn more about deploying the McAfee Agent via a script. We're trying to get Shavlik NetChk to deploy it for us, but we're not having much luck with it.
Scripts Anyone... ???
We are a Novell environment sad and I have a batch file that worked well for deploying the epo 3.6 agent. The Novell login would trigger my batch file. Here are the basic steps I was using:
1. The batch file copied the framepackage.exe and sitelist.xml to the local PC.
2. issue the following command to silently install the agent: "<path to files>\framepkg.exe /silent /install=agent /siteinfo=sitelist.xml
3. Force the agent to check in: "C:\program files\network associates\common framework\cmdagent.exe" /S
Edit:I cleaned up this post. Here is one way to script an install using a batch file. User will have to run as a local admin:
REM Check to see if agent has already been installed
REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent" /v AgentGUID
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO START
"..<Location to your install files>\framepkg.exe" /silent /install=agent /siteinfo="<Location to your install files>\sitelist.xml"
REM 10 second delay
PING -n 10 0.0.0.0 > NUL
REM Force check-in
"C:\program files\mcafee\common framework\cmdagent.exe" /S
I check to see if the agent is already installed. According to McAfee that registry key is the only way to know so I query it.
I put the delay in because sometimes the agent wasn't fully finished installing.
If anybody has an easier or more effective way please let me know. I figured this out through much trial and error.
