Managed Package creation.

Dear All,

 

Would you please assist to create a managed Package such has I've 4 locations with SUM for each location.

I need to build a package which will contain all configurations along with machine to move to the right OU / Group automatically and fetch secondary location account credentials.

Please advise for the Parameters to use.

Thanks in well Adv.

Regards

Faisal Raza

  • Hello Faisal,

    it shouldn't be too hard using the GUI.
    4 locations with SUM for each location
    of course you'd need (at least) one package per location as the Primary location should point to the appropriate SUM.

    the right OU / Group
    there's no OU as far as SEC is concerned. You can specify a group using the -G "\<nameofserver>\<Groupname>" switch in the Additional setup parameters field.

    Hello Faisal,

    this looks ok, shouldn't be too hard to test.

    Thanks QC,

    Always your prompt support helps a lot and appreciated by heart :)

    Thanks again.

     

    I've 2 more questions whenever you have time to answer please :)

     

    1. What's the best practice to have Active Directory synchronized setup and how it would be as different OUs, separate for each region / location?

    2. Is there a tool that can be used to clean up the old machines such as not communicated more than 90 days or a list from CSV or TXT file.

     

    Thanks in well advance.

    Regards.

    Hello Faisal,

    Active Directory synchronized setup
    you can optionally use Active Directory Synchronization (with or without automatic deployment).
    Please note that AD Sync

    • exactly mirrors the complete container (OU) structure below a synchronized OU
    • enumerates and synchronizes all Computer objects in the OUs (filtering is not possible)
    • might (still) cause issues if Sophos is installed before the computer is joined to the domain
    • if using automatic protection does not retry the install once it has failed

    clean up the old machines
    there's a tool - PurgeDB.exe
