Custom O365 Application Pack Push

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to build an application pack for O365. I've tried using the O365 tool in SmartDeploy to make the application pack, but since I need a more specific config .xml tailored to our environment by our System Admin, the SmartDeploy O365 tool isn't working for me. (In the config .xml there needs to be a line to exclude Bing and add a line to add a key into the registry)

Is there any way to insert my own .xml config file into the SmartDeploy O365 tool or add more specific details to the one that is generated?

If not, what would be the best way to build out this application pack? I've tried adding in the normal commands used to install O365 into the application pack and putting the config .xml file and the setup.exe in the files of the application pack and building it out that way, but it didn't give enough time between running the /download command and the /configure command so it didn't work.

Thanks!

Jonathan

You want to download the O365 source files ahead of time, and include them in the Application Pack. Then you would be running the command "setup.exe /configure configuration.xml" in the app pack, with your custom XML.

Thanks for the response, Jeff. I ended up creating a batch file with "c:\temp\setup.exe /download c:\temp\configuration.xml" and "c:\temp\setup.exe /download c:\temp\configuration.xml" commands and had the application pack copy the xml and the setup.exe to the c:\temp folder and then had the application pack run the batch file command. That has been working for me so far. It took me a while to get the copy file task in the application pack to work because I had failed to see that I needed to put the file name in the address as well as the address.

Thanks for your help!

Jonathan
