Automating Installations

To install Smart Auditor Agent on multiple servers, write a script that uses silent installation.

The following command line installs the SmartAuditor Agent and creates a log file to capture the install information.

 
msiexec /i  SmartAuditorAgent.msi smartauditorservername=yourservername  
smartauditorbrokerprotocol=yourbrokerprotocol smartauditorbrokerport=yourbrokerport 
/l*v yourinstallationlog /q 

where:

yourservername is the NetBIOS name or FQDN of the computer hosting the SmartAuditor Server. If not specified, this value defaults to localhost.

yourbrokerprotocol is either HTTP or HTTPS, and represents the protocol that SmartAuditor Agent uses to communicate with SmartAuditor Broker; this value defaults to HTTPS if not specified.

yourbrokerport is an integer representing the port SmartAuditor Agent uses to communicate with SmartAuditor Broker. If not specified, this value defaults to zero, which directs SmartAuditor Agent to use the default port number for the selected protocol: 80 for HTTP or 443 for HTTPS.

/l*v specifies verbose mode logging

yourinstallationlog is the location of the setup log file created.

/q specifies quiet mode.
