How can I script the client install?

For SCCM installs or other forms of scripting, you probably want an MSI installer. Please contact Palisade Technical Support to request one, and please include your serial number with your request. When you get the link, make certain that the file includes "-cust-" in its name.

Your script must install the prerequisite software before installing our software from an MSI installer. See Microsoft Components Required for Palisade 7.x Software Install.

For the client install, you will need the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file as described in Server Step 4: Create Palisade_NetworkClient.ini File. That file should be in a local folder, not necessarily the same folder with the installer. The following commands use C:\TEMP; please substitute the actual folder that contains the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file.

Either way, replace C:\TEMP following SETUPEXEDIR with the actual folder that contains Palisade_NetworkClient.ini. Guidelines for the SETUPEXEDIR folder:

Variation — no desktop shortcuts:

The attended install has a checkbox for putting shortcuts on the desktop. To suppress those desktop shortcuts (equivalent to removing the check mark from the box), add the DTOPSHORTCUTS=0 parameter:

msiexec /i installername.msi SETUPEXEDIR=C:\TEMP /qn USERNAME="firstname lastname" COMPANYNAME="company" DTOPSHORTCUTS=0
