Supported command line options for the App-V Management Server installer


image This recently came across one of our App-V email DLs here and since I didn’t see this documented anywhere I thought I’d go ahead and post it here.  Below are the command line options that the 4.5 Management Server Installer accepts:

The following sample command line installs the Management Server using all the command line options mentioned above:

msiexec /i "setup.msi" /qn /l*vx %temp%\serverinstall.txt OPTIN="true" USERNAME="Krush" COMPANYNAME="MSFT" ADDLOCAL="Release_SoftGrid_Server,Release_AppVirt_Vss_Writer,Release_SoftGrid_Management_Console,Release_SoftGrid_Mgmt_Web_Service" DB_HOST="XRAYHWS" DB_SERVICE="APPVIRT3" DB_PORT="1433" SWICERTHASH="1A7E958464C90D8E8E492372538A83624600E276" SWISERVERRTSPPORT="322" SWIDOMAINNAME="sgl2k3.selfhost.corp.microsoft.com" SWIADMINGROUP="Domain Admins" SWIUSERGROUP="Domain Users" SWICONTENTDIR="c:\program files\Microsoft System Center App Virt Management Server\App Virt Management Server\content\" INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center App Virt Management Server\"

Hope this helps,

    Hello, thanks for this, but question, any idea how to make it install using unsecure RTSP/554 rather than RTSPS? Ive tried just dropping out the switches that involve the cert details and it installs fine but always defaults to rtsps on port 554 and fails
    to work due to lack of cert, going through install logs i dont find anything to specify RTSP vs RTSPS…
