MS Office Media Location


To deploy Office patches, the locations of the Office original installation media (either the CD path or AIP path) must be specified for each version of Office installed. The configuration of this media location can be configured from here (Admin tab > Coifigure > MS Office Media Location). 

 

Refer to Deploying MS Office Patches for more details on the different methods to install Office patches and service packs.

 

The table in this view lists all the Office product names (such as Office 2000, XP, 2003, 2007) and their respective edition types (namely Premium, Professional, Standard etc.). The Media Path and AIP Path columns allow you to add new locations or edit currently configured locations.

 

Configuring CD Path

Select the appropriate Office version and type and click on the 'Edit' link against it, in the Media Path column. This will lead you to a screen where you can configure the location of the CD path/drive.

After specifying the details, you can Save the configuration. The 'Remove Configuration' option allows you to completely remove the existing configuration.

 

Enabling/Disabling CD Path Share

 

Note : This is only for systems running Security Manager Plus Agents. If all your systems are managed remotely (without having a SMP agent installed), then you need not effect this configuration.

 

For the Security Manager Plus Agents to access this shared CD path, you need to have enabled NullSessionShares in this system by making a specific registry entry. This section in the screen will depict if the required share is enabled or not. Click on the 'Enable Share' button if disabled. This can be done only when the CD path has been configured and saved.
