I performed the deployment using the following steps for v7.1.5:
1. Extract the installer file to one direectory (ex: Desktop). You'll have the following files in that folder:
setup.exe, setup.jar, media.inf
2. Execute the following cmd line: setup.exe -options-record C:\EssBase.rsp (the name isn't important) This will execute the normal setup, you can do all your choices and the setup will be recorded in the response file EssBase.rsp (save this file)
3. On the other machines execute: setup.exe -options EssBase.rsp -silent and you'll perform a silent installation with your customizations.
