ISA Server EE Appendix C: Unattended Setup

You can install ISA Server 2006 Enterprise Edition by using the unattended server setup.

To run ISA Server unattended setup
  1. Modify one of the sample answer files, which can be found on the ISA Server CD. For a description of the sample answer files, see the table later in this section.

  2. At a command prompt, type:

PathToISASetup\Setup.exe /V" /q[b|n] FULLPATHANSWERFILE=\"PathToINIFile\INI_filename\"".

Parameters

PathToISASetup

The path to the ISA Server 2006 installation files. The path may point to the ISA Server CD-ROM or a shared folder on your network that contains the ISA Server files.

INI_filename

The name of an answer file.

/q [b|n]

Performs quiet unattended setup. If you specify b, a progress bar indicates the setup process. If you specify n, no dialog boxes are displayed. Error messages are saved to the setup log file.

PathToINIFile

The path to the folder containing the unattended installation information.

Note the following:

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local Administrators group.
  • For example, typing CD\FPC\setup.exe /v" /qn FULLPATHANSWERFILE=\"C:\InstallStandaloneServer.ini\"" performs an unattended installation of a computer running ISA Server services and the Configuration Storage server, using the InstallStandaloneServer.ini file located in c:\.
  • The Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) component, required for many monitoring features, is not properly installed when you remotely install ISA Server, using Terminal Services in application server mode. Use Terminal Services in administration mode to properly install MSDE 2000.

The FPC\Unattended_Setup_Sample\Enterprise_Edition folder on the ISA Server CD contains the sample answer files that can be used by the server setup in unattended mode. The following table lists the sample files and a brief description of each file.
