We have been running
msiexec.exe /i "c:\SFTPRoot\splunkforwarder-x.x.x-xxxx-x64-release.msi" AGREETOLICENSE=Yes /quiet to install a Splunk forwarder on our firewall servers that do not have RDP access; However, of recent, we are running into an issue where this command is not working anymore and we are not receiving any indication as to why it fails.
Does anyone have experience with doing this type of restricted install and/or Windows command line ideas?
Thank you in advance.
Add logging to your command to see why it's failing.
msiexec.exe /i "c:\SFTPRoot\splunkforwarder-x.x.x-xxxx-x64-release.msi" /L C:\logfile.txt
Then evaluate the file.
I had since tried that by running this:
msiexec.exe /i "C:\Users\srvHPOM\Downloads\ splunkforwarder-x.x.x-xxxx-x64-release.msi" /L*V C:\Users\srvHPOM\Downloads\myinstall.log" AGREETOLICENSE=Yes
It was unsuccessful and wrote a log with 0b.
OK, Try this to see if it writes a log.:
msiexec.exe /i "splunkforwarder-x.x.x-xxxxx-x64-release.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log AGREETOLICENSE=Yes
I had issues with several machines when using an auto-deployer like SCCM or PDQ Deply. I got back messages saying the product was already deployed, when it really wasn't.
Thank you very much. I will try this when I get a moment today and let you know.
