List of the limitations of silent installation:
  • Silent installations are only supported on local computers.
  • Generating the pre-configured file using recording mode the first time and modifying settings in the pre-configured file will not modify the settings in the Do not edit sections.
  • For version/build upgrades, record settings using the new package. Silent installation will keep the previous settings when an upgrade is performed.
  • Record settings separately for target servers with different languages. Do not apply pre-configured files recorded on an English operating system to a target server with a German operating system.
To perform silent installation:
  1. Launch the Windows command prompt.
  2. Go to the ScanMail for Exchange directory.
  3. Execute the command "Setup /R" to start the recording mode.
  4. Copy the pre-configured file (setup-xxx.iss) to the SMEX directory when the recording completes.
    • This version of SMEX supports installations on remote SQL servers. After the recording completes, type the SQL server information in the pre-configured file. The password is not encrypted in the pre-configured file.
      If the SQL server information is not specified, SMEX installs on the local SQL server. If the SQL server information is incorrect, SMEX displays an error message and the installation stops.
      For example:
      [RemoteSQL]
      RemoteSQLServerName=mysql/instance1
      RemoteSQLUserName=sqluser
      RemoteSQLPassword=userpwd
      Note: The password cannot be encrypted in the file.
    • This version of SMEX supports silent installation on cluster servers. For Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR) clusters, there is no need to edit the pre-configured file.
      For Microsoft cluster for Exchange 2003, Single Copy Cluster (SCC) and VERITAS cluster installations, type the shared disk and data folder path in the pre-configured file.
      If the shared disk and data folder path is not specified, SMEX installs to the default shared disk and data folder path.
      For example, the following is a record file after an edit:
      [Cluster]
      VirtualServers=EVS1, EVS2
      [EVS1]
      DiskResourceName=Disk Q:
      SMEXFolderPath=Q:\Data\SMEX
      RemoteSQLServerName=mysql2\instance2
      RemoteSQLUserName=sqluser2
      RemoteSQLPassword=userpwd
      [EVS2]
      DiskResourceName=Disk R:
      SMEXFolderPath=R:\SMEX
      RemoteSQLServerName=
      RemoteSQLUserName=
      RemoteSQLPassword=
      [RemoteSQL]
      RemoteSQLServerName=mysql/instance1
      RemoteSQLUserName=sqluser
      RemoteSQLPassword=userpwd
      Note: Separate multiple Exchange Virtual Servers with a comma, semicolon, or space. If the Exchange Virtual Server information is incorrect, SMEX will install using the default settings.
  5. Execute the command "Setup /S <pre-configured filename>" to perform the silent installation.
