Install Service Management Automation from a Command Prompt window

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator, Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server

You can install the features of Service Management Automation by using commands in the Command Prompt window to guide the Windows Installer program for an unattended install.

Windows Installer files

Your installation media contains Windows Installer files for each Service Management Automation of the following features:

  • PowerShell module: PowershellModuleInstaller.msi

  • Web service: WebServiceInstaller.msi

  • Runbook worker: WorkerInstaller.msi

noteNote
The installation options must be entered at a command prompt. An answer file is not supported.

PowerShell module installation options

The Service Management Automation PowerShell module is a required prerequisite of the Service Management Automation web service, so you must install the Service Management Automation PowerShell module before you deploy the Service Management Automation web service. The PowerShell module installer takes no parameters. For example, you could use the following command:

msiexec.exe /i PowershellModuleInstaller.msi

Web service installation options

The following variables can be specified at a command prompt to override default behaviors.
