GlobalProtect Silent Install

L1 Bithead

We are currently in the stages of switching over our equipment to palo alto. In preparation, we are installing the global protect app on all machines ahead of the migration. I've got a silent install setup, but once it completes, I get a connection failed message. I'm wondering if there's any way to suppress this message since it will fail until the migration is complete. Here are a couple of the install string I have tried


msiexec.exe /i "GlobalProtect64-5.2.12.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log PORTAL=""


msiexec.exe /i "GlobalProtect64-5.2.12.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log PORTAL="" CONNECTMETHOD=”on-demand" 


msiexec.exe /i "GlobalProtect64-5.2.12.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log PORTAL="" CONNECTMETHOD=”on-demand" SHOWSYSTEMTRAYNOTIFICATIONS="no"

I'm not sure if I follow. We are deploying this silently in the background with msiexec while the user is on their computer. As soon as the install finishes, this popup comes up. I dont know which keys you're referring to about removing or replacing.
