Installing silently on a remote computer

You can install the agent silently on a remote Mac computer in either of these ways:

  • By using sudo commands from the command line. If you use this method, no user interaction on the target Mac computer is required. See Installing remotely on a Mac computer using sudo commands for details about using this method to install the agent remotely.
  • By using Apple Remote Desktop. This method requires that you have Apple Remote Desktop 3 for remote software distribution. See Installing remotely on a Mac computer using Apple Remote Desktop for details about using this method to install the agent remotely.

    If you use this method to install version 5.1.0 of the agent, the Centrify Join Assistant launches on the target Mac computer after the installation completes, and a user must interact with the Centrify Join Assistant to complete the join process. This limitation exists only in version 5.1.0 of the agent. Earlier versions of the agent (that is, 5.0.x and lower) and later versions (5.1.1 and above) do not have this limitation, and can be installed using Apple Remote Desktop without any user interaction on the target Mac computer.
