Installing the Custom Package Using a Third-Party Software

You can configure a third-party software to install the custom package silently on multiple computers. An example of a third-part software on Windows is the Microsoft Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).

If your computer has a batch script with a set of administrative tasks, you can also use this procedure to configure the batch script with the installation command.

Before You Begin

  • Obtain the custom package from the location specified by the user who created it.

    If the package is in the Download Center, see Downloading a Software Package in Download Center - Web Console.

Procedure

  1. Specify the installation command in the third-party software.
  2. If the package was configured to install the software in decoupled mode, you must register the clients. Choose one of the following approaches:
