Privileged account prompt

The target computer's logon prompt for a privileged user.

Separate multiple values with a comma.

Use privileged account multiple password

This option lets you install the Symantec Management Agent on a group of computers that have different privileged user account names and passwords. The specified login name and password combinations are tried on each target computer until the connection succeeds.

Warning: The passwords that you type in this section are not hidden.

You need to specify the following information:

  • Logins: The list of privileged account login names, one entry per line.

  • Passwords: The corresponding list of privileged account login passwords, one entry per line.

  • Prompts: The target computer's logon prompt for a privileged user.

    Separate multiple values with a comma.

    Default: %, $, #

Log in first using unprivileged user

This option lets you log in with an unprivileged (unauthorized) user account first. You then switch to a privileged user account. You can use this option if the target computer does not allow remote privileged user logons. Specify unauthorized user credentials or enter multiple users and passwords.

You need to specify the following information:

  • Unprivileged User Login: The login name of an unprivileged user account.

  • Unprivileged User Password: The password for the privileged user account that is specified previously.

  • Unprivileged User Prompt: The target computer's logon prompt for an unprivileged user.

    Separate multiple values with a comma.

    Default: %, $, #, >

A regular unprivileged user on Mac OS X must be given permissions to SSH to the system. Otherwise, the unprivileged user may not have SSH access to the Mac OS X system to perform push install. To supply the user with SSH access, on Mac OS X go to System Preferences > Sharing > Remote Login.

A regular unprivileged user on Mac OS X can only be used to perform a push installation through users who are allowed to administer the computer. On Mac OS X, see System Preferences > Accounts. Due to the implemented security on Mac OS X, unprivileged users cannot use root user to perform a push installation.

Use unprivileged user multiple passwords

This option lets you install the Symantec Management Agent on a group of computers that have different unprivileged user account names and passwords. The specified login name and password combinations are tried on each target computer until the connection succeeds.

Warning: The passwords that you type in this section are not hidden.

You need to specify the following information:

  • Logins: The list of unprivileged account login names, one entry per line.

  • Passwords: The corresponding list of unprivileged account login passwords, one entry per line.

  • Prompts: The target computer's logon prompt for an unprivileged user.

    Separate multiple values with a comma.

    Default: %, $, #, >
