unattend installation

Hi,

I have been trying to install McAfee 8.7i silently but I am have difficulty installing it with out it forcing a restart on the machine.

I have tryed a number of different ways but none of them seem to work.

SetupVSE.exe /passive /norestart

SetupVSE.exe /qn /norestart

SetupVSE.exe /qb /reboot=R

Any ideas?

Re: unattend installation

We've installed VSE on 15,000 servers and 60,000 desktops with a command line like this:

SetupVSE.exe /q /l*v McAfee87.log ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=LotusNotesScan,EmailScan,ScriptScan RUNAUTOUPDATE="" RUNONDEMANDSCAN=""

Re: unattend installation

SetupVSE.exe /s

This will use all default settings.

Customize your installation with installation designer for your specific needs.

Re: unattend installation

Found the issue

There is a file call setup.ini with and switch in there.

bRootAlways=1 this forces it to restart no matter what, changing this to 0 stops this.

I have used "SetupVSE.Exe REBOOT=R /q" successfully to run the installation silently without a restart using a script.
