Installing Explorer package Remotely

I am by no means a scripting person, i understand the basics of Bash and some other shells. but i am still learning a great deal mostly from this site.

This is what i am basically trying to do. We have over 1000 sun Blade 1500 clients and 200+ V440, v210, V240 servers. I want the local sysadmin to run this script that will copy the explorer package from my server install it on the local client, then run it and upload the output to my local server when there is a problem so i do not have to remote in there to do this when I'm busy. I am the main sysadmin for all the clients and servers that i listed. All the other sites administrators do not root access nor can i give them to it. I tried creating a if then statement but i do not think it is working since i need to run pkgadd -d as root. Si the method of deploying this by IF and Then statements too hard? I do not have any remote software installed nor do i have pkginstall on the clients and servers and i am not that great with other shells and scripting languages. Also the kicker is i can not install or modify any of the clients or servers except for installing the explorer package that i have permission to install. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

CHSH(1) 							   User Commands							   CHSH(1)

NAME
chsh - change login shell SYNOPSIS
chsh [options] [LOGIN] DESCRIPTION
The chsh command changes the user login shell. This determines the name of the user's initial login command. A normal user may only change the login shell for her own account; the superuser may change the login shell for any account. OPTIONS
The options which apply to the chsh command are: -h, --help Display help message and exit. -R, --root CHROOT_DIR Apply changes in the CHROOT_DIR directory and use the configuration files from the CHROOT_DIR directory. -s, --shell SHELL The name of the user's new login shell. Setting this field to blank causes the system to select the default login shell. If the -s option is not selected, chsh operates in an interactive fashion, prompting the user with the current login shell. Enter the new value to change the shell, or leave the line blank to use the current one. The current shell is displayed between a pair of [ ] marks. NOTE
The only restriction placed on the login shell is that the command name must be listed in /etc/shells, unless the invoker is the superuser, and then any value may be added. An account with a restricted login shell may not change her login shell. For this reason, placing /bin/rsh in /etc/shells is discouraged since accidentally changing to a restricted shell would prevent the user from ever changing her login shell back to its original value. FILES
/etc/passwd User account information. /etc/shells List of valid login shells. /etc/login.defs Shadow password suite configuration. SEE ALSO
chfn(1), login.defs(5), passwd(5). shadow-utils 4.1.5.1 05/25/2012 CHSH(1)
