Is there a way to customize an AT client installer package?



My school will be reimaging over 2000 machines this summer between the 9 buildings in our district. Each building has a post office set up on a filewave booster that forwards to the main filewave server that is also running asset trustee. We are using DeployStudio to run workflows at each building for partitioning, imaging, binding, and filewave/asset trustee installation, which will be unique at each building. DeployStudio can only install package files and we'd rather just get AT installed on each machine instead of creating filewave filesets for each building (although, we will do this if there's no way to do what I'm asking).



So, is there a way to customize an AT client installer package so that it's pointing to the correct post office?



Thanks.

It is possible to modify the postflight script of the scanner pkg to write out a custom prefs files, much in the same way the fw client can be configured for ARD deployment ([url=http://http://www.filewave.org/viewtopic.php?t=645]http://www.filewave.org/viewtopic.php?t=645[/url])



We do not have a pre-made postflight script now but one could potentially be created.



It would be easier though to simply create FileWave filesets containing prefs files, one for each different building. This way you could dynamically control which clients receive which preference files.
