How do I perform a silent install of the Directory and Resource Administrator Console using the command line interface?

Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x


The Directory and Resource client interfaces can be installed, using the command line interface, by using any of the following methods:

  • Use MSIEXEC.exe and run the following command on the client workstation:

    MSIEXEC.exe /i "<path to installation kit>\NetIQAdmin.msi" TRANSFORMS=NetIQDRABase.mst;NetIQDRAUserConsole.mst /qn
    MSIEXEC.exe /i "<
    path to installation kit>\NetIQAdmin.msi" ADDLOCAL=UserConsole /qn

In order to generate installation logs when using the above methods, use the following switches:

MSIEXEC.exe /i "<path to installation kit>\NetIQAdmin.msi" ADDLOCAL=UserConsole /qn /l*v "%TEMP%\NetIQDRAUserConsoleSetup.log"
