The only way i got SAS 9.2 to install silently on a Windows 7 client was by running the command line through a task sequence...this way i have the option to set "run as" where i added the domain admin account name and password. I also had to do it this way to update the license.
So my task sequence had 3 parts:
1- copy license file on the client computer
2- install SAS 9.2
3- delete the license file from the client
SAS 9.2 Silent Installation with SCCM
Place -provision as first argument
setup.exe -provision -wait -quiet -datalocation %APATH% -responsefile C:\PATH\response.properties
This only seemed to matter with SCCM. I was able to deploy it using the system account by other means with -provision in other positions. But with SCCM the install would never complete the first package, SAS Foundation. We noticed roughly 50% usage of 2 CPU's during this time and allowed it to continue running through a weekend.
