We currently use WCBS PASS for our management software and in order to get full functionality SQL 2005 server tools with SP2 needs to be installed on all computers.

Has anyone managed to create a proper MSI package that can be deployed through SCCM/SMS??

We can get the software to work running the MSI we have created but it will not work through SCCM, just sticks at 'waiting' then eventually timeouts

This is the command line we used to run the setup

setup.exe /qn ADDLOCAL=Client_Components,Connectivity,SQLXML,SQL _Tools90

Any help would be much appreciated!

If we can't get this to work then we will need to go install it individually on few hundred computers

Thanks

Darren

You have a space in "SQL _Tools90" that I believe should not be there.

You'll find that SQL Server is much easier to control (and log) if you use a command file or script to execute the MSIs separately with their own transforms. In the 'Package KB' is a list and an order of execution for the MSIs. If not in the SQL Server entry, the MSDE/SQL Server Express Edition entry will have it.

Try MSDN. This really isn't the place for a tutorial.

Also, can I politely mention that hijacking threads is bad manners? Not just here, but on any forum.
