Optionally, you can automate the agent installation process from the command line.

Note

If you are performing an automated network deployment, you must specify the fully qualified UNC network path to the agent file (for example, \\Server\Share\agentInstall.msi, NOT F:\Share\agentInstall.msi).

To install or uninstall the agent from the command line:

1. From the target machine, open a Command Prompt window.

2. To install the agent, run the following command:

MSIEXEC /I agentInstaller.msi /q SERVER=<Appliance IP Address> [BACKUP_VOLUMES=<Drv>,<Drv>] [PASSWORD=<encryption password>]

3. Replace each of the following variables with information relevant to your environment:

  • SERVER—list the IP address of the Appliance.
  • BACKUP_VOLUMES—list each volume to be backed up, separated by a comma.
  • PASSWORD—enter an encryption password for the Protected Device

4. To uninstall the agent, run the following command:

MSIEXEC /x agentInstaller.msi
