Deploying CS5 in Kace
08/25/2014 3154 views
So CS5 64bit and 32bit are rather large, 16gig just for 64bit. I was tasked to setup the installer and get it going. Given the size of the download, I thought, hey, why not host the install files on a local server, and upload an install script into kace as my installer. the script runs and calls the install from my remote location. I thought it was a good idea so that only the 5 of 60 sites that have kace get the install. However, I think I was wrong. If I run the install script by hand on the machines, it runs flawless. If I let kace run the install script, here is my nightmare.
it Actually does install the program, right to the very end (45 minutes later) then, Error! Uninstalls the whole suite, and leaves me with nothing installed.
1. no errors posted in the computer management log files.
2. all errors i've seen in the adobe installer logs seem to be trivial such that they don't list with adobe as fatal and killing the install.
i'm gonna take a guess and say that the kace account for software installs, it's a system account, doesn't have the rights it needs on the remove server location to do whatever.
