Hi all,

I have to install MS SQL Server 2008 on about 150 remote servers. Since doing this is a tedious task, I was wondering if there is a template script or a document on unattended installation of MS SQL Server 2008.


Thanks a lot

Yes do a single installation with all the settings as u want them then take the ini file that it references and use a script the contains the following command line

setup.exe /configurationfile="path to ini file referenced above"

run once to test instatalltion if it is correct modify the ini file to allow silent install

; Setup will display progress only without any user interaction.
QUIETSIMPLE="True"


This has worked for me for a single instance although getting multiple instances is proving a bit more difficult

alternating run setup /? and review the guidance for a command line install everything in the configuration file can be set via the command line

As well you can use powershell to cycle through the servers and kick off the installs.
It's quite a lovely sight to see really.

Hi,

in fact I implemented long ago exactly as are suggesting. It works very well. I even gave the routines to a technician and he is running all the installation.

Thanks indeed for your reply.
