Has anyone gotten a script or custom pkg to deploy Carbonite Pro?

I wrote one. This will always deploy the most recent version of Carbonite. I just wrote it and it seems to be working well. They asked for a copy so if you see anything wrong please let me know.
You will need to have a .XML that has some basic information placed into /Library (LocalAutoConfig.xml).
I have the dmg place the .xml in first then run this script. The .xml will be removed.

<AutoConfig> <Silent>1</Silent> <RunActivatePostInstall>0</RunActivatePostInstall> <StartClientPostActivate>0</StartClientPostActivate> </AutoConfig>
#!/bin/bash

@Pagigostra How do I find -activationurl="YOUR_COMPANY_URL" and -activationcode="YOUR-COMPANY-CODE"

I think maybe this is not the right product. This is for a cloud backup software login URL here.

@Pagigostra For email, do you have a good way to bring in user's alias' if this does not match userid?

I did not test that.

How do you copy the LocalAutoConfig.xml to /Library?

If I recall correctly, I just used a .dmg to put the .xml into that location. Sorry haven't used this product in a long time.

How is Carbonite compared to say OneDrive, CrashPlan/Code 42 or others as backup / sync?

CrashPlan/Code 42 is klunky to say the least with it's user setup.

OneDrive with the new KFM (Known Folder Movement), and the ability to re-direct Document and Desktop folder is actually excellent. I am not sure I have seen anything as easy and transparent as OneDrive for backup / sync...

 

But what about environments that are not MS / Office 365...
