    Hi All - I am creating a standard package to Install Office 2016 using ISO. What will be the command line parameter for Office 2016 install?
    I tried this - did not work :Office2016.iso/Office2016.app:/Applications:
    Appreciate your help

    Found a way to install Office 2016.
    I have the ISO file which I renamed to Office2016.iso. When you mount you will see this info Microsoft_Office_2016_Volume_Installer.pkg So the command is as follows:
    :Office2016.iso/Microsoft_Office_2016_Volume_Installer.pkg::
    Create a Package in SCCM (Standard Package) and insert above command parameter
    Once the package is downloaded on your Mac machine - Open Applications - You will see all Office Apps. Open each one and complete the updates. That simple.

    I use an script "template" for each installation
    Example Office + Skype

    #!/bin/bash
    #
    NAME="Microsoft Office 2016"
    PKG="Microsoft_Office_2016_16.9.18011602_Installer.pkg"
    logger -t 'Parallels-SCCM' 'Installing '$NAME
    installer -pkg $PKG -target / -verbose
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Ok installing '$NAME
    else
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Error installing '$NAME
    fi
    #############
    NAME="Microsoft Office Serializer"
    PKG="Microsoft_Office_2016_VL_Serializer_2.0.pkg"
    logger -t 'Parallels-SCCM' 'Installing '$NAME
    installer -pkg $PKG -target / -verbose
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Ok installing '$NAME
    else
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Error installing '$NAME
    fi
    #############
    NAME="Microsoft AutoUpdate"

    installer -pkg $PKG -target / -verbose
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Ok installing '$NAME
    else
    logger -t "Parallels-SCCM" 'Error installing '$NAME

    I got the installers for Office 2016 and SkypeForBusiness pkgs from portal.office.com (we're using office365 licenses, but I guess those are also on the image). Then I use the Microsoft's CMAppUtil to convert the pkgs to cmmac files. Import those cmmacs into SCCM as OS X Applications and deploy them normally.

    If you install Office 2016 or SkypeForBusiness during a TaskSequence, make sure you enable "Continue on error". During a task sequence, the software installation will "fail". The installation actually succeeded, but because file indexing is slow, the installation detection fails. This is described on p.139 of the PMM v6.0 admin guide

    I initially used to deploy direct from the ISO downloaded from our microsoft volume licensing site, easy to setup and deploy but the VL version is always outdated. See guide below, the best way i have found to deploy a fully patched office 2016. You can even covert the .pkg created into ccmac format, so you can offer the install up to the parallels application portal. Can also be used to upgrade office if not on latest patch versions.
