To locally install providers by using the command line

  1. Copy the provider file USProvider.msi from the console server’s Program Files\FRS Monitoring folder to the remote replica members on which you want to install the provider.
  2. On the remote servers, at the command prompt, type the following:
    msiexec /i USProvider.msi CONTROLLERACCOUNT=ControllerComputerAccount
  3. In the above syntax, for ControllerComputerAccount substitute the computer account name of the server where the controller is installed. The expected format for the computer account name is ComputerName$@FullyQualifiedDomainName. For example, if the controller is running on a computer whose fully qualified DNS name is, you must specify the controller account name as server1$ Note that case is important for the CONTROLLERACCOUNT parameter.

  4. On the console server, run Ultrasound.
  5. On the Tools menu, click Configure Ultrasound.
  6. Under Monitored FRS replica sets, click the replica set whose members you installed providers on by using the command line. (You can also press the CTRL key and click to select multiple replica sets and replica members.)
  7. Under Ultrasound WMI Provider Deployment Status, right-click the replica member on which you installed the provider, point to Override Deployment State, and then click Installed.
