So you want a script to install Vipre AV on Mac systems well I got just the thing for you.
Here is what I did.
Create a 2 line LT script,
In the description field of your new script type in the following, feel free to cut and paste if you want.
“I promise if this script works for me to send Cubert a Starbucks Gift card”
Now lets add our first line to the script
Line 1 = “write file” command to /tmp/myviperinstall.sh
curl -O http://myserver/labtech/transfer/Vipre/MacVIPREBusiness2.0.87.dmg
hdiutil attach MacVIPREBusiness2.0.87.dmgcd “/
Volumes/GFI Software VIPRE Business – 2.0.87″/
installer -pkg “GFI Software VIPRE Business Install.pkg” -target “/”
hdiutil detach “/Volumes/GFI Software VIPRE Business – 2.0.87″/
Do not forget to edit the URL and name of the viper DMG file. I was using 2.0.87 when I wrote this so you will need to make any changes to file names and mount directory names.
*note* I left out the first line of text which normally would be (#!/bin/sh). The “Write File” function had issues with the !, not sure if I needed to escape that or not so I just left it out.
The next script line should be “Shell Extended” with a cmd of “/bin/sh /tmp/myvipreinstall.sh”
The 2 lines combined will write the script file to the Mac system and then execute the shell script. The shell script uses curl to download your DMG and then mounts DMG, and executes the PKG installer.
I am also working on updating the server preference for Mac to point to Vipre server and then updating LT database to show that AV is installed.
That will come later in the show!
