Sophos updating policy secondary server
If you have no Windows Server, and can no longer use SUM, this leaves two more possibilities, first you could use the standalone SAV9 installer.
It is even possible to pre-configure the auto-update account details for this.
I was able to build an installer package that uninstalls Sophos and installs a new copy of Sophos 9.x using the install application.
I've posted the details here: After much troubleshooting I managed to get around this issue by doing the following (we're using Sophos Cloud) 1) Use a test VM to install "Sophos Installer.app" (~4Mb Cloud Installer which downloads a full version).
Ok, I did a bit more testing, as mentioned the mpkg you found does not include the needed auto-update preferences.
I have found that if you do the following in the following order the desired results seem to be achieved. Bit messier than I thought it was going to be, the following looks like being the 'official' way to do it.
Therefore if you use it on a fresh Mac or one on which you have cleaned out the previous installs preferences it does not know how to auto-update.
It will help with a different problem we have (which is not Sophos' fault) which is for some Macs never connected to the Internet.
However at least with Adobe Flash you can find if you look hard enough a standard package file to install Flash.
/bin/bash/private/tmp/Installer.app/Contents/Mac OS/Installation Deployer --installinstaller -pkg /private/tmp/-target / After rebooting the Mac and checking our cloud server the computer is showing in the control panel.
Tested on a couple of separate clients and they're showing up as unique machines in the cloud control panel!
Captured the changes using Composer 2) Took a copy of the which shows up in the list of captured files.
(Can't remember exact path but if you browse through the folders it should be under a folder called "saas". 3) Made a of the plists left in /Library/Preferences (excluding the apple plist) 4) Made a new Composer dmg including these 2 packages in the folder /private/tmp 5) Ran a script after installing the dmg (which dumps the 2 .pkg's into /private/tmp), which then calls the installer in the app and then applies the preferences for the cloud app: #!
If the Installation Deployer command is executed from root it will run without a GUI session and without needing additional authentication.
