How can I perform a mass deployment to Mac?

You can install the Security Agent on Mac endpoints that cannot access the Worry-Free Business Security Services web console by modifying and running the preferences file (.plist) on the target endpoints.

  1. Download the Security Agent installer as described in Security Agent Installation — Install on This Endpoint.
  2. Create the deployment script (Mac_deployment.sh).
    1. Create a new file using a text editing program.
    2. Copy and paste the following script.
      #!/bin/bashIDENTIFIER="Your
            Identifier"PKG_PATH="Your path of
              WFBS-SVC_Agent_Installer.pkg"rm /var/tmp/TrendMicro/Identifier.plist > /dev/nullmkdir /var/tmp/TrendMicro > /dev/nullcat > /var/tmp/TrendMicro/Identifier.plist <<EOF<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
            "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"><plist version="1.0"><dict>               
            <key>Identifier</key>               
            <string>$IDENTIFIER</string>               
            </dict></plist>EOFcp $PKG_PATH
              /var/tmp/TrendMicro/WFBS-SVC-Agent_Installer.pkgopen
              /var/tmp/TrendMicro/WFBS-SVC-Agent_Installer.pkg
    3. Replace the Identifier and pkg_path information.

      For more information on obtaining the Identifier, see How do I copy the Identifier information?.

    4. Save the shell script file as Mac_deployment.sh.
  3. Install the Security Agent on the Mac endpoint.
