Need help with incorporating Symantec Packager with Altiris pcAnywhere Plug-in
Before explanation, we are running Symantec Management Platform 7.1 SP2 with pcAnywhere 12.5.5
We are going to be converting over from VNC to pcAnywhere and I’m attempting to set it up in the same fashion except I’m running into an issue.
I found the Symantec packager, which is great, I can import my reg keys to change central server logging, setup the host files the way I want them to initially be, but I need to be able to change the caller files globally throughout the company when we need to add more users to the authentication.
I see I can use the pcAnywhere plug-in to deploy it, then I can add the ADS groups into pcAnywhere Settings -> Authentication to update the users, but deploying from the plug-in, as far as I been able to find, I can't modify the package that gets deployed. Which means the packager which so nicely brought everything I need, isn't able to be used since I have to deploy from the console.
And I don’t only have one package, I have several packages depending on if it’s host only, remote and host only, which central server I want it logging to or which firewall settings I need.
So I am wondering how I can deploy a custom built package but still have the ability to edit the authentication from the console to update the active user/groups on all my clients that have pcAnywhere installed.
