Protection Service for Business ( PSB ) Rollout / Installation Tips

 

Note: community feel free to provide additions to experiences and tips when it comes to rollout of the PSB products.

 

Remote Installation Tool

 

You can download the Remote Installation Tool from the portal. This provides you with a Windows UI where you can enter the installation executable for the PSB Workstation. Further you provide Keycode and account credentials and choose which of the Windows network browsed computers you want to initiate a push installation to.

 

Batch Script

 

Log in to the portal and download the PSB Workstation Install file. Then you could add a login script to your domain or just create a batch file like below to deploy the client to workstations.

 

Example script (install.bat):

ECHO OFF
IF EXIST C:\dummyfile.0 EXIT
START /WAIT psbinstallationfile.exe /SILENT /K:xxxx-xxxx-xxx /LANG:ENG /REBOOTDELAY:360
PRINT > C:\dummyfile.0
EXIT

 

Comment: The script will obviously have to be run with at least local administrator privileges. It will not install the products twice as long as it can find the C:\dummyfile.0 file which is checked before the actual installation starts.

 

Command line options are:

 

/SILENT Run Setup in the silent mode. If specified, this parameter must be the first.

/LANG:<AAA> Specifies the 3-letter abbreviation of Setup language

/K:<keycode> Specifies the installation keycode.

/HIDE:"<dialogs>" Specifies the comma-seperated list of dialogs to hide.

 

For scripted and automated installations:

/RITOOL Remote Installation Tool compatibility mode.

/REBOOTDELAY:<n> In reboot dialog, allow delay of up to n seconds (0=no timer)

 

For secondary (self-unpacking) instances:

/UNPACK:<submask> Specifies the relative path and mask inside self-unpacking archive.

/TO:"<path>" Specifies the absolute target path.

 

/NOUPDATE Disable fetching the updates at installation time.

 

All options are case insensitive.

    Hi Jacma

     

    Thanks a lot for your reply, this is very helpfull for situations where the users somputers isn't attached to the domain, so you can't push the installation, and the users have to pull it from the network :)
