Unattended (Programmatic) Installation

You can install Application Center programmatically from the command line or by using batch files. The following unattended installation configurations are available:

  • Default installation: Server, Administrative client, and Application Center Events and Performance Logging are installed (this is the default configuration). All features are available with this installation.

  • No AC Logging: The full server and Administrative client are installed. The full server and Administrative client features are available, but specific logging features are not.

  • With AC Logging: The full server and Administrative client are installed. The full server and Administrative client features are available, with all logging features.

  • Server only: only the full server, not the Administrative client and Application Center Events and Performance Logging, is installed.

  • Administrative Client only: only the Administrative client, not the full server and Application Center Events and Performance Logging, is installed. Use this installation for remote administration. The computer on which this option is installed cannot become a cluster member.

  • Sample monitors: several Microsoft Health Monitor 2.1 rules for Microsoft SQL Server™ and other monitoring tasks are installed.

Bb687343.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gif Note   Unattended (programmatic) installation requires the Product ID (PID) for Application Center. The PID is a 25 digit value. To specify the PID, use the PIDKEY command, for example:

PIDKEY=EEH2GD2VK9QD4M9F63XE43C33

Option

Command

Notes

Default installation

msiexec /i " path " /q /lv* filename .log

This option installs the Administrative client if you have not installed the hotfixes first.

No AC Logging

msiexec /i " path "/q /lv* filename .log ADDLOCAL=Server,Client

With AC Logging

msiexec /i " path "/q /lv* filename /log ADDLOCAL = Server,Client,ACLogging

Server only

msiexec /i " path "/q /lv* filename .log ADDLOCAL=Server

No AC Logging is included by default. To exclude No AC Logging for Server only, use No AC Logging.

Administrative Client only

msiexec /i " path " /q /lv* filename .log ADDLOCAL=Client

An Administrative Client only installation must include With AC Logging.

Sample monitors

msiexec /i " path " /q /lv* filename .log ADDLOCAL=SampleHealthMonMonitors

The sample monitors are not installed by default in any of the preceding options. To install them with another option, to the ADDLOCAL parameter, add SampleHealthMonMonitors.

Specifying the PID

msiexec /i " root \Microsoft Application Center 2000.msi" /q PIDKEY= pid_key 

Bb687343.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gif Note   The value for pid_key might appear on the CD packaging as QD4M9-F63XZ-43C33-WQH2G-D2VK9 (this is only an example, not the actual PID), but you must enter it as a 25 digit number with no intervening dashes.

This installs the default installation. You can add different parameters.

Bb687343.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gif Notes

For example, to install the Administrative client only, without Application Center Events and Performance Logging, server components, and sample monitors), type

msiexec /i "E:\Microsoft Application Center 2000.msi" /q /lv* RemoteInstallLog.log ADDLOCAL=Client
