So Im trying to deploy PSB 12.01 silently in a Config Manager Task Sequence but the installer ends with exit code 1. It times out waiting for some process to end.
Trying the iinstallation "manually" through cmd with silent switch and there are no real clues, logbook says something about "Software Protection Service has stopped" and "VVS service timeout due to inactivity".
What are the correct switches for this version to do a silent install that ends with success code 0?
Its not the first time im looking for information like this I have to say that F-secure is really bad at documenting this kind of information.
To remote installation you will need check some items:
To SILENT installation, dont forget uncheck the Display progress indicator to end-users during the remote installation.
I dont have a Policy Manager for Protection For Business. I have the F-secure PSB Portal, the only thing I can do is to download the package from there.
I can deploy version 10.0 and 10.50 silently. But 12.01 doesnt work.
Ops, sorry for this wrong answer.
Are you using this tool for PSB remote install?
Its important the check list where I said in the last post is working in the end-user such as:
Another solution is install a Policy Manager Server/Console in a machine and import the .JAR to this server and do the remote install by Policy Manager. So this way, you will proceed as Policy Manager normal install (so just use the previous post the check list install).
No we are deploying Windows 7 and F-secure with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and the F-secure installation should be done unattended together with the OS installation in the Task Sequence. We should not be forced to use a separate tool for this.
Looks like I finally cracked this **bleep**.
We should not have to deal with these kinds of problems, this is a workaround. It is not the first time we encounter these problems with your packages. It is not much to ask for a package that can be installed silently without errors.
I'm also having problems when trying to deploy FSCS 12.0 from an exported MSI file via policy manager. We are deploy using Specops software, but that should't matter as all MSI are supposed to do the same thing. Is there any documentation on parameters available for your MSI you get exported from Policy Manager ?
For me, the installation goes well in the meaning of error code, but there is only a post created in Windows Remove/add program saying FSCS is installed. But I never see FSCS starting on the client computer, not even after several reboots. You should be able to provide us with an adminguide on deploy F-Secure products, like the one for Policy Manager that's out there.
In the upcoming CS 12.10 release we make significant improvements for MSI installation scenarios.
CS 12.10 RTM is planned for mid of June. CS 12.10 Admin guide will contain the information about supported MSI installation scenarios, options, etc...
Currently CS 12.10 Beta3 is available with MSI related changes in place, and you can try it already now.
If we are talking about installation from exe package, here is the standard example of command line which provides silent installation and returns 0:
fspsbwks-12.01.283_PSB1.exe /SILENT /VARS : DISABLE_REBOOT=true /LANG:ENG /K:XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
