Perform an Administrative Installation
To prepare your environment for deployment, you will need to create an administrative installation point. You do this by installing an administrative install image of Reflection for Secure IT on a network share (typically on a file server). An administrative install image is a source image of the application, similar to an image on a CD-ROM. It includes all the files required to install Reflection for Secure IT as well as the administrative tools used for customization.
Caution: For this procedure, use only the Advanced and File Location tabs. Configurations made from other tabs will be ignored.
Attachmate’s recommended practice is to create an administrative installation point before you install Reflection for Secure IT on a workstation. This allows you to use the administrative installation point for the workstation installation.
If you prefer to use a command line instead of the Attachmate Installation Program graphical interface, you can create an administrative install image from the command line as follows:

Note: Administrative installation images are typically created in a file server folder. However, you can create administrative installation images in any folder on a local hard disk, which can be useful for testing purposes.
