Command Line
Here are the sample command line options for SEP:

To install unattended without a reboot and a log generated with the name "log.txt":

setup /s /v"/l*v log.txt /qn RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS"

To silently remove email tools from a SEP client:
setup.exe /s /V"REMOVE=EMailTools /qn"

To silently remove the Firewall from a SEP client:
MsiExec.exe /I {product GUID from registry} /qn REMOVE="Firewall"

To silently add the Firewall to a SEP client:
MsiExec.exe /I{product GUID from registry} /qn ADDLOCAL="Firewall"

Also something to note is that the installation package can be actually configured from the Client Install Settings (it doesn't come with much beyond the default by well, default). But you can setup a silent installer, that doesn't update upon installation; thus reducing command line interaction, and your troubleshooting of it if you're testing deployments.

Note
Here's what I used to only install the Anti-virus and anti-spyware components (includes the Outlook plugin, but not the Lotus Notes plugin). Note that the entries in ADDLOCAL are case sensitive.

msiexec.exe /i "symantec antivirus.msi" ADDLOCAL="SAVMain,EMailTools,OutlookSnapin" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress.

In case you also need to get rid of a previous version of SAV, make sure you set these registry keys to 0 if you have password protected uninstalling SAV. I forgot and was getting errors when trying to remove the old version:
HKLM\Software\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\AdministratorOnly\Security\UsePVUninstallPassword = 0
HKLM\Software\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\AdministratorOnly\Security\LockUnloadServices = 0

Command Line
I had a packaged EXE from the management console that I extracted to get at the MSI files within. Used this command to get things working:

msiexec /i "Symantec Antivirus.msi" /qb /norestart

You can't check the Reboot after installation on this one because LiveUpdate runs automatically afterward, so just add a Restart computer task after Application Installation task item. (If anyone has any ideas around this, message me).

Command Line
I found that when creating an .mst file using AdminStudio Tuner, it wouldn't respect the components that I didn't want to install (it installed them anyway), and it also ran LiveUpdate when I told it not to.

To get around this, I passed the following into the "Command line properties that will be passed to the Windows Installer package while creating a response transform" section on the first Tuner screen:

RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 CACHEINSTALL=0 ENABLEAUTOPROTECT=1 ADDLOCAL="SAVMain,SymProtectManifest,OutlookSnapin,COHMain"

Note
We ran into an issue with this software during an automated build process.

In our automated process we needed to have the system delay this installation by 60 seconds after an autologon to allow Windows to finish loading. If we did not inset this delay our WinDVD software would generate an error upon exiting.

It may affect other software as well but once we put the delay in the installs went smoothly.
