Export Package settings
This dialog box lets you create client installation files. Different settings are available for Windows clients, Mac clients, and Linux clients.
You can export Windows packages as a single executable file, or as a collection of files suitable for distribution through a third-party deployment tool.
The Mac and Linux client install packages automatically export in the
.ziparchive file format. To correctly preserve the file permissions, you should expand the archive file with an archive program native to the operating system. For example, use the Mac Archive Utility or the
dittocommand. You cannot use the Mac
unzipcommand, a third-party application, or any Windows application to expand the files for these operating systems.
If you upgrade from a previous version, the Mac client package pathname is too long, and the export fails. You must choose a shorter pathname for a Mac client package.
Export package settings describes the settings for exporting Windows, Mac, and Linux client installation files.
