The Sophos Deployment Packager creates a single self-extracting archive file from a set of Sophos Endpoint setup files, for installing Sophos Endpoint Security and Control (SESC) on client endpoints.
The Deployment Packager User Guide is available from the Sophos website (http://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/documentation/deployment-packager.aspx).
Supports Sophos Anti-Virus 10.8.4 and later versions.
The minimum requirements to run the Deployment Packager tool are as follows:
You should also be aware of system requirements for the packaged endpoint components. See http://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/all-system-requirements.aspx.
|DEF88625||If you attempt to install Sophos Anti-Virus using a ready-made installer created by Sophos Deployment Packager and the logged on user name contains double-byte characters (for example, Japanese, Chinese), the installation
does not continue.
When the installer is run, the setup files are extracted to the %temp%/cid_packager_temp directory, but the installation does not continue. No errors are displayed or logged in the event logs.
Workaround: Log on as a user with no double-byte characters in the username.
|DEF76225||A "packaging failed" error message may be displayed when you try to create a package using command-line with an obfuscated password, -opwd command. If the error is displayed, ensure the obfuscated password is correct. If it is accurate and continues to display the error, enter a plain text password using the -pwd command or use the Deployment Packager user interface.|
