How to Create SCCM Application for Rapid7 Insight Agent

Rapid7 Insight agent is not an easy application to pack via SCCM 🙂

For detection rule, I have tried a few times, and here is the working one: (If you tried to use file detection rule, even if exists, sometimes it broke during self update process, and the service is not running, you got the wrong compliance report).

$Result = Get-Service ir_agent -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select Status
$Result = $Result.Status

if ($Result -eq “Running”)
{Write-Host -Object “Installed”}


And for installation, we have to first remove any old existing entries, otherwise it won't install
