How to install Symantec DLP agent using logon script or startup script

Created: 11 May 2012 | 3 comments

Hi all

I want to install DLP agent on all Active Directory computers that are Windows XP  Service pack 3 or Windows 7.

I have created the following script file which i have attached to this forums discussion and i changed the file extention to ".bat".

I have assigned this batch file in Scripts(startup/shutdown)-->startup.

I have shared this folder mentioned in the batch file (which contains MSI)with permission to domain computers and everyone -->read access.

I have assigned to the OU which all the computers exists in that ou.

but nothing happens on the computers.

When i check EVENT Viewer i have only one information event which states that MSI installer stared the msi, but nothing happens and installation doesn't create folders and the service.

"It is good to say that i haven't assign the MSI to software installation in GPO because i wanted to add switches that you can see in the script"


"when is double click the Script when i login to a client with administrator account, Installation finishes successfully."

I mean that i think that there is a problem with automatic installation or privilege.

I have read many forums and articles but i'm doing the same but ....!?!?
Can you help me to install DLP agent using Active Directory please

According to you script:

msiexec /i \\\x86\AgentInstall.msi /qn INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Symantec\Endpoint Agent\" ENDPOINTSERVER="" KEY="" UNINSTALLPASSWORDKEY="7C80CCEB398941DD18216D19495BE45CE05CD21E" SERVICENAME="Symantec Endpoint Agent" WATCHDOGNAME="WDP" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT="0" /log %temp%\dlpinst.log

try to add double quotation marks to the location of the msi file and the log file.

I used this script and its work without any problem. But the user which logon must be a local administrator on related machine.

msiexec /i \\ari\DLP\64\AgentInstall64.msi /q INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Manufacturer\Endpoint Agent\" ENDPOINTSERVER="" KEY="" UNINSTALLPASSWORDKEY="Dlp" SERVICENAME="EDPA" WATCHDOGNAME="WDP" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT="1"
