Software Deployment Question

Installing Smart Office via Command Line - Adding Server URL

06/26/2014 3517 views

Sorry, I new to this site as well as SCCM.

But I am trying to deploy Lawson Smart office via SCCM and I am wondering if I can add the server URL to the command line and what the best practice would be.

here is my command line: msiexec.exe /i InforSmartOffice.msi /qn /norestart

below are the MSI options and maybe I am missing it, but do not see a switch for server specification. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • you will have to look inside the MSI to see if they have a property for the serverURL. if you don't have Orca (other tools are available) you will have to install the MSI with the GUI, set the URL then look to get the property and value from the log file
  • You could try adding server="https://yourserver:12002" to the msi command switches. It looks to me like that may work but I can't install the software to try. From what I can gather you could create a GPO to add a current user key with the info too. The following key may differ depending on the version you are installing.
