Silent deployment of GlobalProtect without auto launch?

L1 Bithead

I am deploying Global Protect agent 4.0.0-90, but it auto launches after installation.

I'd like it to be entirely silent. No auto launch.


Is there a flag I've not seen for this?


It does work! I had a typo in the "prompting for credentials" bit. Whew! Thanks, vsys_remo!

Turning off prompting for credentials when SSO fails seems really problematic to me.  It is not uncommon for the default credential provider to get switched from GP back to Windows, in which case GP will just fail to bring up the VPN if prompting is turned off.  I guess I can kludge a way to turn it off for installation, then turn it back on again afterward, but it would really be better if there were just an MSI property that would stop the Agent from launching on installation.

Combination of PORTAL and CONNECTMETHOD public properties worked for me with a GlobalProtect 4.1 install.


msiexec.exe /i GlobalProtect-4.1.4.msi /quiet PORTAL="" CONNECTMETHOD="on-demand"

Installs silently, does not auto-launch/auto-connect to the defined portal after silent install. Tested against GlobalProtect 4.1.4.
