Hey Everybody,

Does anyone know the command line switches for the new 5.3 agent?

It looks like the only thing in the client share is the MSI.

Thanks!

If it's an MSI, then you'll have the standard msiexec parameters (i.e. /passive /quiet /norestart, etc.). To find these, type msiexec /? in command line. As far as custom MSI parameters go, I'm not sure yet - I haven't had time to dissect 5.3, and I wasn't aware it was finally released.

The built in MSI stuff works just fine.

I'm having trouble passing the server name.

Alright,

Looks like you can add "HOST=SERVER" to the end of the MSI command.

Set server name
---------------------
set KACE_SERVER=k1000name (Must be followed by an msiexec call to install.)

Example:
set KACE_SERVER=kbox
msiexec /i ampagent-5.2.12345-x86

Set properties
-------------------
PROPERTY=value (Must use ALL CAPS.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86.msi HOST=k1000.kace.com

Auto set host name
--------------------------
rename agent_installer.msi_hostname.msi (Renames the install file to the name of the server name, which automatically sets the host name.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86_k1000.kace.com.msi

Renaming the agent is pretty slick!

rename agent_installer.msi_hostname.msi (Renames the install file to the name of the server name, which automatically sets the host name.)

Example:
msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.32941-x86_k1000.kace.com.msi



That is sneaky, I haven't seen that done before with an MSI, is that a property in the msi file that automaticly get info after the "_" ?
