Where can I find a list of all the valid KInstaller command line parameters (KINSTALLER_ARGS) for the 5.0 agent for Windows?

I don't see this in any of the manuals, or in the Knowledgebase, and even running KInstallerSetup.exe --help doesn't do anything. Sande

What is your purpose? Agent_provision.bat allows for some command line parameters - is it not working?

agent_provision.bat does indeed show some of the arguments, but it's not clear: For example, it says, "REM %4 - optional, SSL_ENABLED", but it doesn't say, or show, what values that 4th parameter can take. (https? 443? yes? ssl? ...)

And agent_provision.bat leaves out features I want (like MSI logging), so I want to run KInstallerSetupSilent.msi myself, with the correct parameters. I just need documentation on what KINSTALLER_ARGS can contain.

If there's no --help built-in, I figure there must be documentation somewhere, maybe even from the KInstallerSetup.exe source code. Sande

I believe the input values for SSL_ENABLED are 0 (for off) and 1 (for on).

If you want a list of arguments or source code (I doubt you'll get source code), I'd suggest you submit a ticket to KACE. Please share your findings here, as they may help someone else in the future.

I don't want the source code. But sometimes, in the source code, a programmer starts with a comment section that lists all the values (or parameters) a particular variable can take. It's that comment section I'm interested in...

I realize that. The only way you'll get the info you're looking for is by submitting a ticket.

Andy is correct. Same values for the AMP SSL option

Note that those are optional parameters. Just leaving them out would be the same as leaving them off.

Thanks to everyone for the specific answers.

But you've demonstrated exactly what I want to know and why: what AMP SSL parameter? I've never seen any information about any such argument, which is why I asked for documentation on all the arguments. Sande

There is documentation in the batch file itself (agent_provision.bat) for the AMP SSL parameter along with several others.

REM be installed first.

Hi Sande,

SSL_ENABLED = 1 // Use SSL (https / 443) for sending inventory, logs, etc[/align]

AMP_SSL = 1 // Use SSL for AMP communications (https / 52230) for communicating with KBOX, sending requests[/align]

X64_DOTNET = 1 // Passed in as 6th arg to agent_provision.bat - if set to 1 and on a 64-bit OS - do NOT install .NET 1.1

[/align]
You can create a batch file to run dotnetfx.exe and KInstallerSetup.exe in silent mode.
Replacing KBOX_SERVER with the IP or Hostname of the BOX

dotnetfx.exe /q
KInstallerSetup.exe -server=KBOX_SERVER -display_mode=silent -ssl_enabled=0 -amp_ssl=0
