PolicyPak CSE Installation using SCCM without forced reboot

Post  kjseever on Mon Apr 01, 2013 3:25 pm

I'm not sure what I'm missing for this so I thought I'd ask. I am trying to push out the CSE software using SCCM, but once it installs it reboots the machine immediately. I've tried adding the /promptrestart option of msiexec, but that didn't help either. I want it to prompt to restart and let SCCM/the user decide when to reboot. Is there a switch or setting I'm missing? My next step was to modify the MSI using Orca, but thought I'd look for an easier option first.

Thanks in advance,

Kenny

MSIs / installing

Post  jeremym on Mon Apr 01, 2013 4:26 pm

I'll try to find out if there's a supress reboot switch.

But.. the good news is.. NEXT version has NO reboot requirement.

Just install.. and.. it instantly starts working.

Coming soon.. really soon..

But, for build 537.. hang tight until I can research your question. Thanks.

MSI Switches

Post  jeremym on Mon Apr 01, 2013 4:35 pm

I haven't tested it, but I was just told that

/norestart /quiet

ought to make it, well.. not restart and quietly install.

Please let us know your progress here.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I tried adding those switches, and it did install without rebooting. Unfortunately it also doesn't notify SCCM or the user that a reboot is required so they won't know to reboot, nor will it reboot during a maintenance window. I tried using the /quiet /promptrestart switches, but then it was back to auto restarting.

In terms of the next release, is really soon a matter of days, weeks, months? If it's soon enough I'll put of deploying for a little while.

Thanks again,

Kenny

Next version.

Days.

So, stand by.

There's even some built in reporting you can see (without SCCM) to verify it's actually installed.

The target reporting directory DOES need to be set up in advance. Video here: http://www.policypak.com/videos/ac6d9hnteq

Quick Followup for future SCCM deployers

Post  jeremym on Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:29 pm


When you use

Code:
REBOOT=ReallySuppress

It appears that SCCM will do what it's supposed to do; which is:

1. Deploy the CSE and
2. NOT request / require a reboot.

Again, this starts with builds 545 and later.
