Silent Installation of the eG VM Agent

To silently install the eG VM agent on Windows VMs, follow the broad steps outlined below:

  1. Creating silent mode script for eGVmagent installation
  2. Installing eGVmAGent in silent mode

Each of these steps have been discussed elaborately below.

Creating a Silent Mode Script

For this, follow the procedure detailed below:

  1. Login to a target Windows VM.
  2. From the command prompt, run the following command to launch the normal mode installation of the eG VM Agent.

     

    eGVMAgent_<32/64>.exe /a /r /f1"<Full path to the script file into which the installation inputs will be stored>”

     

    For example:

     

    eGVMAgent_x64.exe /a /r /f1"C:\script\eGVMAgent.iss”

  1. Upon execution, this command will automatically create a script file of the given name in the location mentioned in the command.
  2. Command execution will also begin the normal mode installation of the eG VM Agent. Provide inputs as and when necessary to proceed with the installation.
  3. These inputs will be automatically recorded in the script file that was created in step 3.

 

Installing the eG VM Agent in the Silent Mode

Follow the steps given below to install the eG VM Agent in the silent mode:

  1. Login to the Windows VM where the script file containing the inputs for installation resides.
  2. Copy the script file from this VM to the Windows VM on which you want to install the eG VM Agent in the silent mode.
  3. Copy the eG VM Agent installation executable also to the target Windows VM.
  4. Next, on the target Windows VM, run the following command from the command prompt:

     

    eGVMAgent_<32/64>.exe /a /s /f1”<Full path to the script file containing the inputs for the installation>

     

    For example:

     

    eGVmAgent_x64.exe /a /s /f1"C:\script\eGVMAgent.iss"

  5. Upon successful execution, this command will automatically install the eG VM Agent on the target Windows VM.
  6. You can then repeat steps 1-5 on each Windows VM where you want to install the eG VM Agent.
