Hey Everybody,

Does anyone know the command line switches for the new 5.3 agent?

It looks like the only thing in the client share is the MSI.

Thanks!
Answer Summary:
Set server name --------------------- set KACE_SERVER=k1000name (Must be followed by an msiexec call to install.) Example: set KACE_SERVER=kbox msiexec /i ampagent-5.2.12345-x86 Set properties ------------------- PROPERTY=value (Must use ALL CAPS.) Example: msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86.msi HOST=k1000.kace.com Auto set host name -------------------------- rename agent_installer.msi_hostname.msi (Renames the install file to the name of the server name, which automatically sets the host name.)

If it's an MSI, then you'll have the standard msiexec parameters (i.e. /passive /quiet /norestart, etc.). To find these, type msiexec /? in command line. As far as custom MSI parameters go, I'm not sure yet - I haven't had time to dissect 5.3, and I wasn't aware it was finally released.

The built in MSI stuff works just fine.

I'm having trouble passing the server name.

Alright,

Looks like you can add "HOST=SERVER" to the end of the MSI command.

Set server name
---------------------
set KACE_SERVER=k1000name (Must be followed by an msiexec call to install.)

Example:
set KACE_SERVER=kbox
msiexec /i ampagent-5.2.12345-x86

Set properties
-------------------
PROPERTY=value (Must use ALL CAPS.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86.msi HOST=k1000.kace.com

Auto set host name
--------------------------
rename agent_installer.msi_hostname.msi (Renames the install file to the name of the server name, which automatically sets the host name.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86_k1000.kace.com.msi

rename agent_installer.msi_hostname.msi (Renames the install file to the name of the server name, which automatically sets the host name.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86_k1000.kace.com.msi



That is sneaky, I haven't seen that done before with an MSI, is that a property in the msi file that automaticly get info after the "_" ?
