Issue/Introduction

You are deploying the MacOS Cloud Enabled Management (CEM) installer and want to customize the installation.

Environment

Symantec Management Platform 8.x

Resolution

The MacOS CEM installer has three command line options for installation.

Inside of the zip file created when you generate and download the CEM package you will find the following directory structure:

<Package Name Specified>\Cloud-enabled Agent Installation Package\Resources

Inside of the folder Resources is a script file, cem_package.sh

The command line options for cem_package.sh are:

Generic options:
     --help, -h - Display this usage information and exit immediately.

Specific options:
     -dir <dir> - specify installation directory
     -pwd <pwd> - specify password to decrypt package
     -reinstall - will reinstall agent discarding previous settings

Note that the -pwd needs the password inside of single quotes.

If the -dir option is not used, you will be prompted to either enter it or accept the default installation path (/opt/altiris/notification/nsagent/). 

If the client computer already has an agent installed, use the -reinstall switch.

Note that in the latest versions of MacOS, you will still get prompted by the OS
