Remote Update Windows & Mac Teachers/Students Using Mac Tech Console

Problem: How to remote update Windows and Mac Teachers/Students using the Mac Tech Console.

Prerequisite(s):
  • Mac Tech Console
  • LanSchool installation media

Solution(s):

If you have the Windows Tech Console steps to update can be found here.

Locate the folder that contains the downloaded installers from LanSchool. Once you locate this folder, you will need to locate the Mac folder within, and navigate to the installers lanschool_teacher.dmg, lanschool_student.dmg, mtupdate.zip & mupdate.zip. Once you locate these files, you will want to copy the files.




If you want to remote update Windows Teacher and or Students from Mac Tech Console, locate the following files:
Student.msi
Teacher.msi
pcupdate.zip <- (From the Mac folder) For teacher/student settings update




Locate and open /Applications/LanSchool and paste the following files:
Student.msi
Teacher.msi
lanschool_student.dmg
lanschool_teacher.dmg
mtupdate.zip & mupdate.zip & pcupdate.zip into this folder.





Next you will open the Lanschool Tech Console, and select the Teacher and or Students that you want to push the update to. Then click on Manage, and Update LanSchool on Selected Users.





Once you select this option, you will be prompted with a Remote Update Settings Page. Select the Student settings or the Teacher settings you would like to Update and push out.





Next you will be required to input a local admin account or domain admin account credentials that has correct permissions to push the update(s), and make changes to the machine.

NOTE: Mac machines will require a root admin local account for this to work correctly.





Once this is done, it may take a moment or two to reflect the update(s) and or changes to the machines you selected.
