    Scripted install of SIMS Discover

    Has anyone scripted a install of discover 7150 as i would like to push it out with SCCM 2012 .

    Tried to create a package using the msi wasn't able to load as it did not which Databases to connect to.

    Tried looking at the documentation for it on PDF but links were broken to scripted install instructions.

    I've not, we use SOLUS3 to deploy it. However if you have SupportNet access, I'm sure the Discover Technical Guide contains details on all of the available switches that can be used for a silent installation.

    I have done it in SCCM this is the script it used.

    I took the config files form i a computer i did a manual install on.

    Code:
    msiexec.exe /i "Source\Setups\SIMSDiscoverClient.msi" /quiet
    
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.Administrations.Desktop.exe.config" del "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.Administrations.Desktop.exe.config"
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.DataEngine.dll.config" del "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.DataEngine.dll.config"
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.Designer.Desktop.exe.config" del "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.Designer.Desktop.exe.config"
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.SIMS.Configuration.exe.config" del "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.SIMS.Configuration.exe.config"
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.SIMS.EntityModel.dll.config" del "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client\Discover.SIMS.EntityModel.dll.config"
    
    copy "Config Files\Discover.Administrations.Desktop.exe.config" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client"
    copy "Config Files\Discover.DataEngine.dll.config" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client"
    copy "Config Files\Discover.Designer.Desktop.exe.config" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client"
    copy "Config Files\Discover.SIMS.Configuration.exe.config" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client"
    copy "Config Files\Discover.SIMS.EntityModel.dll.config" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\Discover Client"
