ieak - 1st time deploy questions
Posted on 2004-09-16
New to ieak and have questions.
I want to use ieak to create N user based profiles defining
content - approved sites. I created a custom installation
(flat) with the customization wizard and installed
it on a client pc using the run window.
Obtained it from \ieak\builds\09162004\FLAT\WIN32\EN\ie6setup.exe.
Worked just great. Setup was silent install and reboot was
? Can this setup be called from the last line of a login script
without problems? All users already have ie6 installed.
Most are local administrators of their box.
? There was also another directory structure
\ieak\builds\09162004\INS\WIN32\EN, which I assume is the
directory that hold the 'custom' profile information. Is
? To use the ieak profile manager must you first build and
install an ieak built ie distribution? Assume you must.
? When I went into the ieak profile manager to tweek the
approved sites, I started by selecting the install.ins
in the directory \ieak\builds\09162004\INS\WIN32\EN.
After modifying the list in "Security Zones and Content Ratings"
I went to save it; File->Save As. The dialog insists that
I enter a URL path to cabinet files. Must I? I must, or
it won't save, but I was hoping custom profile could be
applied in a login script that used a \\server\share\path
form. Do I have to have a web server running to do this
? Should I save each profile in the same directory but
with a new name?
? Once setup how can I apply a custom profile to the browser.
I can determine who the user is and so choose which ins
to select. Once I've determined which profile/ins I want, how
do I invoke it within the batch?
Customization Wizard - Stage 2 - Automatic Version Sync...
? I get a whole list of out of date components (yellow !).
On the right are three buttons, all greyed out. Why
can't I Upgrade, Synchronize or Synchronize All?
All our systems are maintained with SUS (which works
fine). I am the adminstrator of this PC.
