Hi,

I guess package is in dmg format, then start software import as usually :

1. Go to Software catalog and start usual import process :

2. On "Import Software : Specify Software" window you should  choose package source and its location. (point package content to you dmg file)

3. Press next, then it will take some time to parse pacakge content 

4. On next window you will see the whole list of packages inside your file. Here you can select "Office Installer.mpkg"(choosing it will allow you to install whole package). THen go to the next page

As a result you will have "Mac Office" software resource with predefined command lines:

a. Interactive install - will allow  users to interact with installer

b. Silent install - silently installs software ( no user interaction)

c. Uninstall

5. Create Managed Delivery Policy with  "Mac Office package"  and define "Silent install" command line.

6. Assign target for this policy

Thanks,

Andrei

Hi Sachin,

Upon import, software resource should contain 3 command lines(as I mentioned above). Can you confirm if there are any command lines generated for this software resource?

Did you have select "Office Installer.mpkg" as installation file?

Pleae see attached screen shots 

So all this shouldlook like : 

1. Select file location

2. Select Installation File "Office Installer.mpkg :

3. Go to next page and confrim import.

Result:

If this won't work for you, please share SMP logs. (preferably enable taces - open log viewer and under Options/Log Options enable Trace and Verbose levels, then try to import software again and share logs)

Thanks,

Andrei

Hi,

As I see you are importing not a dmg/flat pkg, rather clear mpkg or some kind of directory(I guess this is Office installer.mpkg)

This will not work, since on windows you can import only DMG or flat packages. Inside these containers you can have any other kind of packages like .app, .mpkg, .pkg etc. The reason for that - package permissions will be lost while such package will be downloaded to windows machine. And dmg is like a distribution standart.

So if you have mac office dmg - then import DMG file, If you have only mpkg, then you can create dmg for that package on any Mac OSX. 

Thanks,

Andrei
