Dear All, i have trouble deploying Nexthink collector though JAMF.
I have re-package the 'Nexthink collector' installer using "composer",
I do not have any error on deloyment but we lack files.
Does anyone of you know a proper way to deploy the Nexthink collector with Jamf?
Yes, it's simple. You need the installer but in our case we also needed a root ca txt file and also a customer key text file. You then distribute the package with a post install command that runs something like:
./csi -address serveraddress -port 999 -tcp_port 999 -rootca /path/to/txtfile -key /path/to/txtfile
Just wanted to share what we are douing, hope it might help someone.
We package the Nexthink_Collector installer, RootCA & Customer Key & place it in /private/tmp/
Below is the Installation Script:
#!/bin/sh #Description: Script to install the Nexthink Collector form the pre-cached dmg installer file, Root CA & Customer Key. # Variables used by this script. dmgName="Nexthink_Collector.dmg" # CHECK TO SEE IF A VALUE WERE PASSED IN Jamf FOR PARAMETER 4 AND ASSIGN THEM if [ "$4" != "" ] && [ "$dmgName" == "" ]; then dmgName="$4" fi # Mount the DMG /usr/bin/hdiutil attach /private/tmp/Nexthink_Collector/$dmgName -noverify -nobrowse -noautoopen # Change the directory to the path of the csi application: cd /Volumes/Nexthink_Collector_18.104.22.168 OSX 10.12 - 10.15/csi.app/Contents/MacOS/ # Define the parameters for csi.app for installing the Collector from the command line interface sudo ./csi -address x.x.x.x -port xxx -tcp_port xxxx -rootca /private/tmp/Nexthink_Collector/Nexthink-root-ca.txt -key /private/tmp/Nexthink_Collector/Nexthink-customer-key.txt -campaign enabled # Unmount the DMG hdiutil detach /Volumes/Nexthink_Collector_22.214.171.124 OSX 10.12 - 10.15/ -force # Delete the package contents /bin/rm -rf /private/tmp/Nexthink_Collector/
And here goes the EA:
#!/bin/bash #Description: Extension Attribute to report the installed version of the Nexthink agent, or Not Installed. if [ -f "/Library/Application Support/Nexthink/config.json" ]; then VERSION=$( /bin/cat /Library/Application Support/Nexthink/config.json | grep -i version | cut -d '"' -f4 ) else VERSION="Not Installed" fi echo "<result>$VERSION</result>"
@Surajit okay and that was a flat pkg? and the script above is a postinstall script?
thank you in advance for the clarification!
edit: think I got it, I used a flat package and that seemed to work with our version on 10.15, but if there is a better method I am still curious. thank you again
