Remotely Software Deployment with Symantec PGP

Created: 01 Feb 2013 | 2 comments

Hello All,

I was trying to understand what is the right way to remotely install software which demands restrt on machine that PGP Desktop is installed.

I got an answer from PGP support which says that i need to create group in AD which called: WDE-Admin .

They also provided me command for bypassing the BIOS autentication, but i'm little bit confused and don't undestand what is the procedure for making it work.

In our organization we are using SCCM for every Software deployment, thefore i would like to ask you advise, does anyone knows what should be done in order to deploy remotely software which demands restart?

Thanks a lot

The WDE-Admin AD group is used for bypassing the bootguard authentication, which happens are you ENCRYPT the disk, not after you install.  You can do silent install and supress the reboot, but remember it will only show you bootguard AFTER you have installed AND rebooted, then when somone logs on, it will enroll then add its username and password into the authorised users.
