The seplpkg tool makes it easy to create a full or offline Linux Installer package for a given platform or for all Linux distros. It is an ideal solution for an isolated environment for creating packages and deploying/installing agents on Linux distros. 

This tool currently runs on Linux and Windows.



Release : 14.3 RU5


Use Cases

  • Download packages and create a full SEP Linux Installer given a Cloud or SEPM Linux Installer stub on all platforms, which can be installed behind a firewall.
