Vendor Provided Command Line (answer file driven)

When deploying IBM iSeries Access for Windows, you can use the included setup.ini file to specify standard MSI command-line switches to be used.  The line is located under the [Startup] section and called CmdLine.

For example, to write a log to the C:\Logs folder, replace what is there with:
CmdLine=/l "C:\Logs\IBM_iSeries_Access.log"

To choose which features to install, use the standard ADDLOCAL= switch with one or more of the following (separated by commas):

Feature                      Internal name of feature
Required Programs req
Directory Update      dir
Incoming Remote Command      irc
Data Transfer dt

For example, to install only the required files and the "5250 Display and Print Emulator" along with a verbose log, no reboot, and silently with no user interface, the line would look like this:
CmdLine=/l*v "c:\Logs\IBM_iSeries_Access.log" ADDLOCAL=req,emu REBOOT=ReallySupress /qn
When calling the setup.exe from a command-line, deployment tool or script, it should be called with a /S switch.
You can also pass standard MSI command-line switches to the setup.exe directly, using the /v switch.
Ex: setup.exe /v"/l*v C:\Logs\IBM_iSeries_Access.log" /vADDLOCAL=req,emu /vREBOOT=ReallySupress
