Install Distributed Replay from the Command Prompt

Installing a new instance of Distributed Replay at the command prompt enables you to specify the features to install and how they should be configured. The command prompt installation supports installing, repairing, upgrading, and uninstalling of the Distributed Replay components. When installing through the command prompt, SQL Server supports full quiet mode by using the /Q parameter.

Note Note

For local installations, you must run Setup as an administrator. If you install SQL Server from a remote share, you must use a domain account that has read and execute permissions on the remote share.

The list of top-level features include SQL Server, Analysis Services, Reporting Services, Integration Services, and Tools. The Tools feature will install SQL Server Management Tools, SQL Server Books Online, SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), and other shared components. To install the Distributed Replay components, specify the following parameters:

Important note Important

After you install Distributed Replay you must create firewall rules on the controller and client computers, and grant each client computer permissions on the target server. For more information, see Complete the Post-Installation Steps.
