unattanded installation of OSX packages


Go to solution Solved by Megachip,

Is there any possibility to create unattended installation packages for osx like in windows?

 

Even if i create a remote install package in osx, if the user started it, esets asks again for configuration and so on.

 

thx for help

 

To specify the problem:

  • no apple remote desktop
  • no ssh access to clients

=> An unattended solution like in windows is requested. Export an install script or the whole installer, which user only starts but have no possibility to configure anything.

 

If this is not possible, is anyone knowing a alternative solution like putting the installation package in a multipackage and doing the installation via console script?

 

best,

meg

Did someon read what users wrote? ;)

 

I have no Apple Remote Desktop (AFAIK it isn't free?). I have no SSH root Access to the user maschines. I Need a package like in Windows, which the user can start and which will installs automaticly without user interaction. It's possible for Windows, it's possible for Linux (via deb/rpm package) but i can't find a way to manage that within osx.

 

THX a lot

 

Best, Meg

Hi everyone,

 

@Megachip, the answer to your question is yes, and it's already available. The latest version of ESET Remote Administrator (ERA) allows you to perform remote installation to Mac OS X clients. Here is a link to instructions on how to update ERA. Once you have the most recent version, the push install can be performed using the same procedure you would use to push to a Windows machine.

@CB530. Thanks for Information. Had 5.1 installed but can't find the Option to Export the installer script.

 

Neither on send via email nor on Export the osx package is listened.

 

the Option you mentioned in your link did not work, cause osx has no ssh deamon running and i've no credentials for These maschines.

 

The procedure on Windows is providing the user a link where he can download the installer (300 kb), which he can doubleclick and nod installed unattended. So how can I provide such procedure for osx?

 

THX a lot,

 

Best,

Meg

Hi Megachip,

 

I have looked into this and at this time there is no way to produce a standalone installation package for OS X clients, you must push the package to clients that are connected to ERA. I apologize for the inconvenience and for not getting back to you.

THX,

 

so, is there anything planned to solve this problem?

 

Are there any known work arounds? 

e.g. Build a metapage which copies the shell script to tmp and launches the installation?
