Deploy Unix scripts from a Windows Deployment Server

Legend

Hi at all,
I have an all-in-one Splunk 6.4.3 installed on Windows 2012/R2 to manage both Linux and Windows Forwarders.
Obviously my problem is to deploy apps like TAnix from a Windows machine to a Linux machine because scripts in App haven't the correct rights (they have 644 instead of 755) and so they don't run!
I have read answer https://answers.splunk.com/answers/70039/windows-deployment-server-to-nix-deployment-client-permissi...
source=typeahead&utmmedium=newquestion&utmcampaign=novotessort_relev
but it's an answer of four years ago and I don't understand how to implement it.
Can anyone give me any suggest?
Bye.

Maybe you could untar it on a linux box, recursively change the owner to your Splunk users UID, change the permissions, and then tar it back up and gzip it, and move it to you ds ?

Otherwise I guess you have to script the permissions change and run the script as a scripted input as part of the app... Wow the pain!

Scripts are the ones in TA-nix app so rights are correct (in a Linux DS)!
But Windows DS gives wrong rights to them.
