PGP Bootguard and SCCM 2012

Created: 16 Dec 2013 | 2 comments


I need some help with using PGP Bypass and a package from SCCM 21012.    We are running PGP Desktop version 10.2.0 Build 2401 and Server Version 3.2.0.   I have a package created in SCCM 2012 that says it installs successfully when checking the status from within the software center.   Ihave a batch file that we have created.   If that batch file is run manually the machine will bypass the bootguard screen.   If that same batch file is entered in SCCM and used to create a package when run from the software center.   The software center status shows as being successful but the machine doesn't bypass the bootguard screen.   

The contents of the batch file are below:

cd "\Program Files (x86)\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop"

start "PGP BootGuard Bypass" /MIN /WAIT "C:\Program Files (x86)\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop\PGPwde.exe" --add-bypass --disk 0 --count 3 --admin-passphrase xxxxxxxxx
Thanks and I would appreciate any help you might could provide.

Hi jhailey,

My guess is that the user that runs that script is not the same in both situations.
Try to use the Windows "runas" command to launch that command with the same user you use when running directly in the machine.

Task processes etc in SCCM run as the LocalSystem account, I believe. Add "--aa" to the end of your command and you should be fine. We had the same issue trying to automate the decryption of the HDD in advance of a OS upgrade "--aa" did the trick.

So instead of

"C:\Program Files (x86)\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop\PGPwde.exe" --add-bypass --disk 0 --count 3 --admin-passphrase xxxxxxxxx

You want to use

"C:\Program Files (x86)\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop\PGPwde.exe" --add-bypass --disk 0 --count 3 --admin-passphrase xxxxxxxxx --aa
