Custom install of SMA Agent
We are attempting to do a custom install of the agent following this KB https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-management-appliance/kb/153581/kace-k1000-agent-installation-properties
The script that we are using is as follow:
msiexec /i c:\Users\Tech\Desktop\ampagent-10.1.43-x86.msi HOST=kbox.domain.com INSTALLLOCATION="K:\KACE\INST" APPDATALOCATION="K:\KACE\APP" /qn
When we look at the K:\ drive, we find out that only the "INSTALLOCATION" variable is able to install and all the files are listed there, but not the APPDATALOCATION, We are running SMA v10.1.99, and the way we execute is locally from a batch file, and also we try deploying it from the SDA as a post-install task, same result.
You may ask why are we modifying the installation path? well, we have 500+ computers running DeepFreeze and we are attempting to have a Thawed space, in this case, K:\ so the agents will update to a new version as they are released.
Also, when we launch the batch file the K:\ drive is empty so it successfully creates K:\KACE\INST but not ...KACE\APP
Any clue why this installation is incomplete?
