Mac OS X installer`

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:55 am

I'm working on getting some out-of-date Mac agents updated and I'm trying to wrap my head around how the installer works. I can extract the location-specific .zip downloaded from our Labtech server and get the .mpkg and files, but I'm not sure how or where the script gets called. I see that it contains our server address and password and the client location ID, but when I extract the .mpkg I can't find any reference to the script. Best I can tell it doesn't actually get called - it just sits in the directory alongside the .mpkg. Makes no sense, though, as it HAS to be called at some point or else the location ID never gets set on the endpoint.

Can anyone help me figure out what the OS X installer is doing with this script and what part of the LT install package references it?

Check out, the OSX install script has all the steps needs to download and install an agent, including extracting the package and rewriting the config to target a location.
