Symantec Ghost 8 Console Client[edit]

This is a silent installer for Symantec Ghost 8 Console Client. It uses MSI, so it is really simple to take care of. The only little thing is the variable which sets the Ghost Console Server name. The below example forces the installer not to reboot, as I don't want a user session to be suddenly rebooted without asking. After the package is installed, it sets up a firewall rule to allow server to client communication.

<package
 id="ghost-client"
 name="ghost-client"
 revision="1"
 reboot="false"
 priority="18">

 <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Symantec Ghost Console Client" />

 <install cmd='msiexec /qn /norestart /i "%SOFTWARE%\ghost-client\Client.msi" GHOSTCONSOLESERVERNAME="your-server-name-here" ' > 
  <exit code="3010" />
 </install>
 <install cmd='cmd /c netsh firewall set allowedprogram "%PROGRAMFILES%\Symantec\ghost\ngctw32.exe" "Norton Ghost" ENABLE' />

 <remove cmd='msiexec /norestart /x "%SOFTWARE%\ghost-client\Client.msi"' />
</package>
