Silent Documentum Desktop Client Installation! - Possible?

03/03/2005 5138 views
Hi all!

I am faced with deploying the Documentum Desktop client v 5.2 to many PCs within my organization. I have attempted to repackage using Wise Package Studio and was not successful. The installation seems to be created in Installshield (Not an MSI)but the package does not respond to the regular command line switches (/s for silent /r to record a answer file).

Anyone out there have experience in customizing and silently deploying the client? We are using Altiris to deploy. ANy help would greatly be appreciated!

There is a way of doing a silent install of DTC 5.2

To create the response file start the install at the command line with the following command:

setup.exe -record c:\<filename>

To use the response file in a new install, use the following command:

setup.exe -config c:\<filename> -silent

I would strongly suggest upgrading to 5.2.5 SP3.
This version also uses MSI for install.

That worked! BTW you should publish your knowledge of this package in the Packages section. I know I have tried to do this before and could not find Documentum packaging instructions ANYWHERE!

Thanks again!

Does anyone know how to script the Documentum Install with 3.2?
