Description

Is there any script for silent installation of AhsayOBM or AhsayACB on Windows platform (so that the client application is installed without the end user interaction)?

AhsayOBM /AhsayACB v7 supports two silent installation options on Windows platform.

  1. “Slient” mode .

    During a “Silent” mode AhsayOBM/AhsayACB installation the progress is displayed on screen but the end user does not need to take any action.
    Example: AhsayOBM “Silent” mode install visual feedback

  2. “Very Silent” mode.

    During a “Very Silent” mode AhsayOBM/AhsayACB installation there is no visual feedback about the installation progress on screen.

Assumptions

  1. The AhsayOBM/AhsayACB installers have been branded to include; the Backup Server URL, Backup Protocol, and Backup Port settings.

    For example, backup server URL is 10.3.1.8, protocol is https, and the port is 443.


    Example: AhsayOBM Settings


    Example: AhsayACB Settings

  2. The *.exe installer (obc-win.exe) is renamed according to the desired application (AhsayOBM/AhsayACB) to be installed, to bypass the software selection screen which requires user input.
    Example: AhsayOBM/AhsayACB Windows Installer Product Selection Screen

    i. For AhsayOBM install the name should be for example, obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe
    ii. For AhsayACB install the name should be for example, acb-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe

    Note: "443-10.3.1.8-https" corresponds to the backup server settings {port number}-{backup server URL}-{protocol}
  3. The default language selection on AhsayOBM/AhsayACB is English.
  4. Windows UAC (User Account Control) is disabled on the Window machine where AhsayOBM/AhsayACB slient installation occurs.
Note:
The option for /TASKS="meOnly" or /TASKS="EveryOne" corresponds to the following options on the AhsayOBM/AhsayACB UI.


Steps:
  1. For ‘Silent” mode install of AhsayOBM/AhsayACB use the following command/script:

    AhsayOBM:
    i. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"
    ii. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"

    AhsayACB:
    i. acb-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"
    ii. acb-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"
  2. For ‘Very Silent” mode install of AhsayOBM/AhsayACB use the following command/script:

    AhsayOBM:
    i. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"
    ii. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOnly

    AhsayACB:
    i. acb-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"
    ii. acb-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"
  3. Installation to non default location

    Example: AhsayOBM install to custom location C:\OBM

    i. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly" /DIR=C:\OBM
    ii. obm-win-443-10.3.1.8-https.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne" /DIR=C:\OBM
