Article ID: 8036
Reviewed: 21/03/2019

Product Version:
AhsayOBM / AhsayACB: 8.1 or above
OS: Windows

Description

This document contains instruction on how to silently install AhsayOBM / ACB on Windows platform (e.g. client application installation without user interaction).

AhsayOBM / ACB supports two silent installation options on Windows platform.

  • Silent mode

    When using the "Silent" install mode, the installation progress is displayed on screen but no user interaction is required.



  • Very Silent mode

    When using the "Very Silent" mode, no visual feedback is displayed on screen.

Steps

To perform a silent or very silent install, refer to the following steps:

Preparation:

  • The AhsayOBM / ACB installers have been branded to include:

    • Backup server URL
    • Backup server connection protocol
    • Backup server port setting
    • Owner ID

    For example, if the backup server URL is 10.1.0.50, protocol is https, the port is 443 and the owner ID is 0.



    The AhsayOBM / ACB installer must be renamed according to the backup server settings, where:

    • For AhsayOBM - obm-win-{port number}-{backup server URL}-{protocol}-{owner id}O.exe
    • For AhsayACB - acb-win-{port number}-{backup server URL}-{protocol}-{owner id}O.exe

    For example:

    obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe
    acb-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe

  • The default language selection on AhsayOBM / ACB will be English.

  • Windows UAC (User Account Control) is disabled on the Window computer where AhsayOBM / ACB will be installed.

  • The option to install the client application for "Me Only" or "Anyone who uses this computer" can be controlled by the parameters /TASKS="meOnly" or /TASKS="EveryOne" (example to be shown next):

Silent Installation:

  • To install AhsayOBM / ACB in Silent mode, execute the following command:

    • For AhsayOBM:

      • obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"

        or

      • obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"

    • For AhsayACB:

      • acb-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"

        or

      • acb-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"

  • To install AhsayOBM / ACB in Very Silent mode, execute the following command:

    • For AhsayOBM:

      • obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"

        or

      • obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"

    • For AhsayACB:

      • acb-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="meOnly"

        or

      • acb-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /verysilent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne"

  • To install the AhsayOBM / ACB to a non-default location (e.g. C:\OBM), insert the /DIR=C:\OBM parameter in your command, for example:

    • obm-win-443-10.1.0.50-https-0O.exe /silent /LANG=en /TASKS="EveryOne" /DIR=C:\OBM
