You can use silent mode installation, also known as command line installation, to push-install the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems and the Advanced Open File Option (AOFO) to one or more remote computers. You can also push-install the Remote Agent and the AOFO to more than one remote computer at a time by creating a command file that reads the remote computer names from a .txt file.
To push-install the Remote Agent and the AOFO using the command line
Type one of the following:
If you use the command line switches without the -S switch, the Backup Exec installation program launches with the command line parameters as defaults for the installation options. For example, if -S had been left in the above example, the Backup Exec installation program launches with the user name, domain, and password appearing on the installation dialog boxes.
for /f %%I in <ServerList.txt> do call :sub1 %%I goto :eof :sub1 Echo Pushing to %1 call ..\BE\setup.exe /PUSHRAWS: /DOM:DOMAIN /USER:administrator /PASS:password /SVR:%1 -S if "%errorlevel%" == "0" goto :good echo %1 failed with error %errorlevel% goto :eof :good echo %1 completed successful goto :eof
The installation process creates a job log named bkupinst.htm on the computer where Backup Exec is installed. This file lists any errors that may have occurred during installation. The last line of the log indicates if the installation was successful and if you must restart the computer.
