Hello LANDesk guru's,
Ok, so I've followed/read this:
http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2126 <-best known method...o2k7
and here is my delemma/problem if you will....
I need my package to do exactly this:
and the reason for this is: if you follow the Best Known Method for Deploying Office 2007 with LANDesk 8.8, then you will be prompted on the client side, with all the available Enterprise install options (which is exactly what no one wants the end user to determine if they want to install..say, OneNote) and this is a bad thing.
Unless, I'm missing something in the document from Josh Nicols or I overlooked a step, then this will not work for me....thus why I need my install of Office 2007 to be TRULLY silent (meaning no choices for them to choose from)
This is why I need something in the .exe package that either inserts "/config \\fqdnServer\share\officefolder\ProPlus.WW\config.xml" to point it the only thing I want them to install silently, or a different way of doing it.
I've tried putting the "/config \\fqdnServer\share\officefolder\ProPlus.WW\config.xml" in the Install/Uninstall options in the command line, and when I deploy the package, it fails and states "failed to copy all files or packages....something error"...
It's possible in some error log or log file, the reason could be determined and then fixed...but then I'd need help with fixing this as well.
Currently, i'm getting this install to work with a .bat and a push method, and my .bat has the "/config \\fqdnServer\share\officefolder\ProPlus.WW\config.xml" defined, and this seems to work pretty good.
But, i'm getting an immediate "failed" if I try and Policy the thing for Portal pulling and then it never executes my .bat file ( it copies it to the sdmcache/packages folder) but doesn't execute it with the Pulling method....and you can simply just run the bat file locally in that directory where it copies to, and it will start the Office 2007 install just fine.
so, something weird or something I'm not understanding is underway....
Any help, suggestions would be great.
