VMware Admin Assistant tool uses a Munki command-line utility to give admins an easy way to create the metadata and PKGinfo files that you need to enforce software management. The tool would be available for download with a link

The VMware Admin Assistant Tool is available in the AirWatch Console, and at https://awagent.com/AdminAssistant/VMwareAirWatchAdminAssistant.dmg. The Admin Assistant is also built with an auto-update mechanism, which updates to the latest version based on the AppCast.XML file available at https://awagent.com/AdminAssistant/VMwareAirWatchAdminAssistant.xml.

To generate a metadata file using the Admin Assistant:

  1. Open the Assistant. The Assistant dialog asks you to upload the application installer files for the Assistant to parse.
  2. Upload an application installer file by dragging and dropping a .pkg, .dmg, or .mpkg file into the labeled field, or browse your local files for an installer file.

    When you drop or select a file, the tool will automatically start the process. You can add more files during this time if needed.

Once the parsing is complete, the tool will prompt to reveal the parsed metadata files in Finder. Store the metadata files in a local folder where you can easily retrieve them during the Software Distribution procedure.
