How to install 365 in KACE

07/01/2020 231 views

Hey there, 

I have a question about the best way to deploy this in the first place. I inherited a KACE SMA that was already configured to deploy O365 in a scripted installation. The mid-level task copied the install files to the device HD and then the post install task installed via an .xml. 

Is this the best way to install it?

Also, I cannot figure out how to get the latest version of 365. I tried using the ODT and it does not pull down any installation files, just the setup.exe and .xml. 

Any help is appreciated!

I followed the guide and it works great for me. For the configuration.xml i use https://config.office.com/deploymentsettings too.
