Need Altiris Agent Installation Script with admin credential’s

Created: 15 Jun 2013 | 3 comments


I have to install altiris agent through GPO but the problem is that the given below batch file executes if the user on the workstation has administrator rights, when a normal user logon on workstation the altiris agent does not install. can any one have a solution in which I can send user name and passowrd to execute the script.

The script below is available on different posts and I got it from there.

@echo off

echo Install Base Agent

REM Check to see if we've run this installer before, if we have exit
if exist "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent\AexNSAgent.exe" goto :end

"\\NSServer\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\NS Client Package\AeXNSC.exe" -s -a ns="NSServer.test.test" nsweb="http://NSServer.test.test/Altiris/" NOSTARTMENU /s

echo Install Inventory Agent
msiexec.exe /i "\\NSServer\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\Agent Package\Symantec_InventoryAgent_x86.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress ALLUSERS=1

echo Install Application Metering Solution
msiexec.exe /i "\\NSServer\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\Application Metering\AMAgentSetup.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress  ALLUSERS=1


hope I will find the answer from the guru's

thank you

In an AD GPO you can directly assign the MSI-Installer for the Agent and the plugins.

In addition you can also create a ZAP-file to use non-MSI files like your batch etc:;...

Both techniques will run with admin privileges.
