How to create preconfiguration file ?

Hi.. I read some article like below. Somehow, I was lose at step 1. Someone please help to enlighten me.

Installing the Junos Pulse Client on Windows Endpoints Using a Preconfiguration File
The following procedures apply to Windows installations only.
After you create client connection sets and specify the connections to include within a
client component set, you can create a preconfiguration file with all of the connections
you want to distribute with the Pulse client. You specify the preconfiguration file as an
option when you run the Pulse MSI installer program using an msiexec
(windows\system32\msiexec.exe) command.
To create a preconfigured Pulse installer for distribution to Windows endpoints:
1. Select Users > Junos Pulse > Connections and create a connection set with the
connections that you want to distribute.
2. Select Users > Junos Pulse > Components.
3. If necessary, create a new component set with the connection sets you want to
It does not matter which component option you select, All components, No
components, or Minimal components. The Pulse installer installs all components
unless you specify which components to install using one or more ADDLOCAL options
in the command line. If you specify one or more ADDLOCAL options, the installer
installs only the components you specify. Be sure that you specify all the components
required to support the connections you have selected.
4. Select the check boxes next to the component sets that you want to distribute.
5. Click Download Installer Configuration.
You are prompted to save the preconfiguration. You can also specify the name of the
target Pulse server for the connections, which enables you to create configuration
files that are the same except for the target server.
The default filename of the .jnprpreconfig file is the name of the selected component
set. Make note of the filename and location where you put the file. The preconfiguration
file must be available to the clients either through a network share or distributed along
with the Junos Pulse installation file.
6. Select Maintenance > System > Installers.

Can you let us know the KB article number so that we can get that updated, please?
Those were the steps while the product was Junos Pulse and the name needs to be adjusted. The ADDLOCAL options are also deprecated since Pulse 5.1 (maybe 5.0, I will have to confirm).

Where you see "Junos Pulse" in the instructions, replace with "Pulse Secure" (unless you are on a Juniper-branded system, such as 7.4 and some 8.0 and 8.1 releases).

Does the Pulse Secure Desktop Client admin guide help clear some of your confusion?
