Team,

I need a help on creating bat file script for outlook profile creation. I will be using GPO to deploy the script along all the workstations/ laptops connected to the domain, so that user don't need to manually configure the outlook. Also can some one also suggest me if its possible to include outlook rules in the script?

Also please note that this is for a Mac.

Can anyone please let me know the procedure, how to accomplish this?

Thanks
Krish

Unfortunately it is not possible to script a Mac install.  All of the tools used for scripting office installs are windows agnostic.  Sorry :(

HI sean

Can you please provide me the one for Windows?

Thanks

When I used to be responsible for the office install on a large domain, I edited an answer file on the CD/DVD with the volume license and made a new disc and put it on the network file share.  This made it basically run the install unattended.  The old Mac Office install DVD had the same thing, but I never had enough systems to feel the need to try.

Hi Serial Band,

Thanks for your email. In my scenario, we already have office installed on all the machine. However the only thing which i need assistance is to configure outlook profile . Especially after migration, i don't want user to enter the new email address and username for configuring the outlook profile manually. I need a bat file script for this.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks
Krish.

Team,

Since the Bat file script won't work in Mac platform, can some one please help me creating Bash script for my requirement?
