add a new connection on existing install desktop client 9.1

dear all, 

we need to add a new connection 

 

the clients were installed with msiexec with the following command line

 

msiexec /i "c:\temp\ps-pulse-win-9.1r4.0-b1761-64bitinstaller.msi" CONFIGFILE="C:\temp\FOD_SPF_and_Backup.pulsepreconfig" /l*v "c:\temp\pulse.log" /qn

 

now we have created a new pulsepreconfig file with a new vpn connection added

 

using the following msiexec command line et reinstalls but the connection is not added

 

msiexec /i "c:\temp\ps-pulse-win-9.1r4.0-b1761-64bitinstaller.msi" CONFIGFILE="C:\temp\FOD_SPF_and_Backup.pulsepreconfig" /qn /lp+ "c:\temp\pulse.log" reinstall=ALL reinstallmode=A

anyone has an idea

 

thank you all

Re: add a new connection on existing install desktop client 9.1

Give the following batch file syntax a try. We have had success with this basic script.

Keep in mind the following script is setup for a folder structure like the following:

Main folder

Main folder > install.bat

Main folder > PulseSecure.lnk

Main folder > Data > MPN.pulsepreconfig

Main folder > Data > ps-pulse-win-9.1r3.1-b1413-32bitinstaller.msi

Main folder > Data > ps-pulse-win-9.1r3.1-b1413-64bitinstaller.msi

Main folder > Data > PulseSecureAppLauncher.msi

Main folder > Data > PulseSecureInstallerService.msi

 

 

@Echo on

xcopy "%~dp0Data\MPN.pulsepreconfig" "C:\Temp\" /S /Y

:CheckOS
IF EXIST "%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%" (GOTO 64BIT) ELSE (GOTO 32BIT)

:64BIT
echo 64-bit...
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\PulseSecureInstallerService.msi" /qn /norestart
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\PulseSecureAppLauncher.msi" /qn /norestart PSAL_SMS_PUSH=1
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\ps-pulse-win-9.1r3.1-b1413-64bitinstaller.msi" CONFIGFILE="C:\Temp\MPN.pulsepreconfig" /qn

xcopy pulseSecure.lnk C:\users\public\desktop /Y
GOTO END

:32BIT
echo 32-bit...
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\PulseSecureInstallerService.msi" /qn /norestart
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\PulseSecureAppLauncher.msi" /qn /norestart PSAL_SMS_PUSH=1
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0Data\ps-pulse-win-9.1r3.1-b1413-32bitinstaller.msi" CONFIGFILE="C:\Temp\MPN.pulsepreconfig" /qn

xcopy pulseSecure.lnk C:\users\public\desktop /Y
GOTO END

:END

Re: add a new connection on existing install desktop client 9.1

You can use the jamcommand program to update the connection store, no need to reinstall the Pulse Client for updating the VPN connections.

 

Run jamCommand with the .pulsepreconfig file as an option/argument. For example:

 

On Windows:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Pulse Secure\JamUI\jamCommand -importfile <pulsepreconfig file>

 

If the Pulse client is running when you run jamCommand, the new Pulse connection or connections appear immediately.

NOTE: Make sure the new preconfiguration which you'e using has the updated connection details.
