    Framepkg_UPD.exe or Framepkg.exe

    andy_judge

      I'm trying to create a package to install the ePO agent via a 3rd party deployment solution that we can use across multiple ePO servers (clever script detects ePO server & pulls unique content as part of install) however we have an issue.

      If I use the command Framepkg_Upd.exe /install=Agent   the install fails with 'The Specified Sitelist is Invalid. McAfee Agent Setup will not continue'  if I use Framepkg.exe  + same switches all runs fine.

       

      Once the install completes the box is managed in ePO without issue

       

      What is the difference between the 2 files ?

       

      Reagards

          Framepkg_update. exe is the agent version for standalone VSE. Framepkg.exe is for ePO managed.

            Excellent I'll get testing the script & hopefully all goes swimmingly.

              That's not strictly accurate

               

              Framepkg.exe contains all the files required to install an agent in managed mode. If you run it on a machine that already has a managed agent on it, it will effectively replace the agent on the machine, causing the machine to communicate with whichever ePO server created the package.

               

              Framepkg_upd.exe does not contain all the required files (which is why it fails when you try and give it the /install=agent switch.) Its purpose is to upgrade the agent on a machine without changing the machine's current status (managed or unmanaged) or its controlling server (assuming it's managed.)
