Silent Install Options

Explaining the Silent Install Options

Date Entered: 10/17/2014    Last Updated: 06/03/2016

All of our setups can be run in a silent mode, so that you can create a script or batch file for installing.

setup.exe /S /SNO=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

To specify a non-default installation path you may specify the "/PATH" option. For instance:

setup.exe /S /SNO=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /PATH=C:\Your\Path

Note that the silent installer is non-blocking. However, using the "Start-Process" cmdlet with the "-Wait" switch in PowerShell will cause the command to not return until the process is complete. For instance:

Start-Process setup.exe -ArgumentList @("/S","/SNO=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX") -Wait

Note: All installer options are case sensitive.

BizTalk

The BizTalk installers also offer additional options to specify which adapters you want to install.

The "/InstallSpecificAdapters" switch tells the setup that only some adapters will be installed. Individual adapters may then be selected by adding options like "/InstallFTP" etc. Multiple adapters may be specified by including multiple options. For example:

setup.exe /S /SNO=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /InstallSpecificAdapters /InstallAS2

SSIS

The SSIS installers provide options for selecting the SQL version(s).

  • /SSIS2005 - SQL Server 2005
  • /SSIS2008 - SQL Server 2008
  • /SSIS2012 - SQL Server 2012
  • /SSIS2014 - SQL Server 2014

These options can be added in combination for servers that have multiple versions of SQL Server installed. For example:

Install for SQL Server 2005

setup.exe /sno=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /S /SSIS2005

Install for SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008

setup.exe /sno=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /S /SSIS2005 /SSIS2008

Install for SQL Server 2014

setup.exe /sno=XISUB-RA1SU-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /S /SSIS2014

Excluding Folders

You can prevent the BizTalk and SSIS installers from installing the folders for help files, demos, and prebuilt pipelines by using the following options:

  • /NoDemos - Do not install demos (Only applicable for BizTalk Adapters)
  • /NoPrebuilt - Do not install prebuilt pipelines (Only applicable for BizTalk Adapters)
  • /NoHelp - Do not install help files (Both SSIS and BizTalk Adapters)

Using Proxies

Windows based setups (.exe) will automatically detect and use system proxy settings. No special settings are necessary.

Java based setups require proxy settings to be specified explicitly. For instance:

java -Dhttp.proxyHost=192.168.1.24 -Dhttp.proxyPort=808 -jar setup.jar
