Add configurable automatic expiration for unattended installer

Michael Legato (Support) 5 years ago updated by Ronnie Alcorn 2 months ago 7

Currently, the unattended installer file will work forever. However, partner would like the unattended installer file to stop working after X days so that anyone who uses an older installer won't be able to randomly add it to any machines.

i would really love this feature. one for security reasons, two for ease of mind. i have a client that got there machine infected and started to pass the MSI install file around on random machine. it is scary if you don't know how it happens just see a ton of machines in your console. i also have some techs of my accidentally leaving the installation on machines.


Please add to to the list. I'm having some funny connections showing up:

Not sure if I should be worried, I'm told not to, but then others say I might have to.

It would also be nice to be notified when a new session is created along with the originating public IP address.

This is a critical needed feature. We are currently looking at switching to a competitor - we need to be able to block this.

Seeing repeated installers WITHOUT MY CONSENT is a security issue.  This is a good idea to begin rectification.  I would also like an option to request a code to run the physical EXE///MSI installer.  That way virtual play labs and hackers can't consistently get as much success as they are currently.   They told me it was a Antivirus that sent the file for a scan, which could happen.  But in my case, the client that came back repeated, no longer existed, nor did the computer from which it originally was on.  SOMEWHERE a hacker had old data.  The expiration then in deed would help!
