I'm working with a customer right now and we're getting ready to push out the OnGuard client to a couple hundred users. They're using a product called BigFix that they've had success with in the past.
The OnGuard deployment is one that has the VIA client as part of the package. When the OnGuard client is pushed out, the user is prompted to type in the VIA VPN address and their username and passwords.
Two questions about this: Is there anyway to create an additional file that would populate the VPN IP address? Or, is there anyway to put the VIA Auth Profile into the OnGuard package and push that out?
Thanks for any help that you can offer!
I know you can do a silent install on the OnGuard client. (see below) I have asked engineering on the combo.
OnGuard Installers (both EXE and MSI) support silent install.
MSI Installer supports standard msiexec options:
/quietQuiet mode, no user interaction/passiveUnattended mode - progress bar only/q[n|b|r|f]Sets user interface leveln - No UIb - Basic UIr - Reduced UIf - Full UI (default)Example - "ClearPassOnGuardInstaller.msi /qn"
For EXE Installer we need to pass '/S' as argument - "ClearPassOnGuardInstaller.exe /S"
Please note that silent mode should be launched with Admin rights, otherwise installation will fail without showing any error.
hdiutil attach ClearPassOnGuardInstall.dmgsudo installer -pkg /Volumes/ClearPassOnGuard/ClearPassOnGuard.pkg -target /hdiutil detach /Volumes/ClearPassOnGuard
Above command can be added to a script and that script can be executed. Note that in first command you need to give complete path of ClearPassOnGuardInstall.dmg file.
This is great information! My customer is going to give it a try in the next few days.
If you can, could you also ask the developers if there's a way to include a seed / answer file for the combined client? It would be great if the VPN information was automatically filled in.
I had a follow up from another customer about this. Is there also a way to silently remove OnGuard from a machine? I'm working with a customer that is packing and pushing out the client to a bunch of test machines. On of the things they're interested in testing is removing the client as part of this process.
As always, thanks for the help!
Just what I was looking for - thanks!
One other OnGuard question in the same vein that came up today. Is there a way to put a corporate logo / skin the OnGuard client for distribution in a large enterprise?
As always, thanks!
We don't support the option today to brand OnGuard. Sorry.
Thanks - much appreciated!
The "-getconfig" argument works only if OnGuard is already running, but it is useful though.
Is there any to disconnect the VPN? and/or to clear config?
Is there a complete list of available arguments?
