Issue/Introduction

Using the command line to apply Agent Communication Profile to a client computer.

Resolution

With the release of ITMS 8.1 RU1 (see KB 150642), you can now use command line to apply an Agent Communication Profile to the client computer. Use the following new options:

  • /importprofile:<path> - lets you specify the path to the XML file of the profile
  • /profilepwd:<pwd> - lets you specify the decryption password

 

NOTE:

  • "importprofile" specifies the path to profile XML file,
  • "profilepwd" specifies the decryption password.
  • COM version of utilities outputs the command execution result to the console window.

 

Use these options with AeXAgentUtil.exe (found under ...\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent):

  • AeXAgentUtil.exe /importprofile:<path>
  • AeXAgentUtil.exe /profilepwd:<pwd>

 

Example:

Running command prompt as Administrator:

C:\Program Files\Altiris Agent>AeXAgentUtil.exe /importprofile:"c:\SMP-2016.epm.local.xml" /profilepwd:Altiris123
