Package Lotus Notes 8.5.2 with FP2

(imported topic written by soundchick91)

I am new to BigFix and I am trying to find a way to install Lotus Notes 8.5.2 with FP2. I can get 8.5.2 to install silently but how do I get it to apply the fix pack after Lotus Notes installs? My Action script is pasted below. Thanks!

// Download all specified files

begin prefetch block

add prefetch item name=A292FBB91E45E0B947DB97E7CD07407062DF2E38 sha1=a292fbb91e45e0b947db97e7cd07407062df2e38 size=423726560 url=SWDProtocol://

end prefetch block

// All SWD Files will go into a folder in the clients __BESData folder. This folder get cleared on every restart.

parameter “baseFolder” = “__Download”

// Make Relative Folders

delete __createfile

delete makeDirs.bat

createfile until



mkdir “{parameter “baseFolder”}”


move __createfile makeDirs.bat

waithidden makeDirs.bat

// Move files into subfolders and unescape file names

move “__Download\A292FBB91E45E0B947DB97E7CD07407062DF2E38” “{parameter “baseFolder”}lotus_notes852_win_en.exe”

// Run setup process

delete __createfile

delete run.bat

// Use .bat to set working directy to packages root, for setup command.

createfile until



cd “{parameter “baseFolder”}”

“lotus_notes852_win_en.exe” -s -a /s /v"/qn"


move __createfile run.bat

// You will not be able to stop or take action on an applicable BES Client until your installer completes,

// so ensure no user input is required.

// If your package absolutely must interact with the user, replace waithidden with run.

waithidden run.bat

We don’t have predefined content (yet) for Lotus Notes so you will need to make a Fixlet that detects the older version of Lotus Notes and applies the fixpack… You can try to put this all in the same Fixlet (by downloading the fixpack and running it after the install) or you can have a separate Fixlet.
