    Hi UIM Community,

    Actually I want to install Nimsoft  Agent on Multiple servers for which I am searching command line to install it silently.

    Request you to please provide command for silent installation of Nimsoft  Agent.

    The commands present on different sites popups the installation page even if I pass command for silent install.

     

    Regards,

    Akash

    Hello.

    There are 2 ways to automate Robot deployment.

    I think you may have an interest with B)

     

    A) Using product

    Bulk Robot Deployment with an XML File - CA Unified Infrastructure Management - 8.5.1 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    B) Using third party tool

    Deploy Robots in Bulk with a Third-Party Tool and Native Installers - CA Unified Infrastructure Management - 8.5.1 - CA …

    Hi ISHITANI,

     

    I executed the command

    ./NimBUSRobot.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART

    but it pops up to click next on installation window. I want this complete installation silently without any human envolment.

    Eg: Running the above script sets up Nimsoft in this server.

    Kindly suggest.

    Regards,

    Akash

    Working example:

    - copy exe to a directory, example: c:\temp

    - copy response file to same directory (must be: nms-robot-vars.cfg)

    - execute: nimsoft-robot-x64.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /DIR="C:\uim" /LOG=c:\temp\uim_%computername%.txt"

    Hi Chrlu,

     

    I tried this script but still unable to get this done silently.

    Still i have to click next to proceed.

    One thing which has helped is that after using the cfg file ,it has not asked for any further details.

    But still I am unable to do this silently.

    If you put this in a script/bat file you must position the script to the correct drive and directory, like

    ---------

    Rem --- step 7 - silent install
    c:
    cd \temp
    if %OS%==64BIT nimsoft-robot-x64.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /DIR="C:\uim" /LOG=c:\temp\uim_%computername%.txt"
    if %OS%==32BIT nimsoft-robot.exe /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /DIR="C:\uim" /LOG=c:\temp\uim_%computername%.txt"

    --------

    Thanks Luc.

    Luc is correct.

     

    NimBUSRobot.exe is an interactive installer.

    Please find another installer for silent installation.

    You have it in <UIM>\install\setup on your Primary HUB server.
