If I may know, why you really need this? Just curious.

Are planning install ePO many times?

I don't know about his use case, but that is true in my case.  My group is installing a bunch of software on a bunch of systems and we set up a tool where the user can do all the configuration ahead of time, then click Install and walk away until everything is installed and configured.

did you do it via autoit?

or is it your development?

Re: How to create an unattended installation of ePo 5.1??

There are command line switches you can set that are listed in the install log file.  A basic command line is

setup.exe /quiet /l* C:\Logs\\McAfee_ePO.log

That'll write the log to C:\Logs if it exists.  Some of the command line switches are required, but others depend on your specific configuration.  I don't remember all of the required ones off the top of my head

It's an internal tool.  Like I said, the basic command line for trying to install ePolicy Orchestrator silently is

setup.exe /quiet /l* C:\Logs\\McAfee_ePO.log

I don't remember specifically what parameters need to be set after that, but the log file will list all install parameters toward the end of the log file even if it fails.

Just a brief comment, before you go down the route of committing to 60 ePO servers i'd strongly recommend you download and take a look at the ePO 5.0 'Best Practices' guide.

I don't know the specifics of your network but it may not be necessary to take this approach after reading through that. In that case it could save a lot of potential heartche.
