Introduction: 

What is the command line to install the 12.5 SP1 C1 cumulative agent? I do not see any information in the release notes.

  

Environment:  

CA Client Automation – 12.5 SP1 C1

 

Instructions: 

Copy the "..\DSM\Packages\Public\CAUnicenterDSM\sp1c1_patch\12.0\ENU\Windows_x86" folder to the target machine where you would like to install the agent.

Figure 1

From the command prompt browse to the folder and run:

"Deploywrapper.exe /INST CopiedAgents /qn ALLUSERS=1 SP1C1_PATCH c:\sample.res "

Where 'c:\sample.res' is a dummy output response file which is mandatory.

 

The deploywrapper.exe installation log is captured in %Temp%\ITRC_DeployWrapper_ITRM.log and SP1_C1 log is captured in %Temp%\ca_itrm_sp1c1_patch_trace.log.

***Note: The last parameter (c:\sample.res) is used to emulate the behavior of .res file generated under "DSM\Agents\units\00000001\usd\sdjexec" and this file (sample.res) is not created while installing the agent using the deploywrapper.exe command.

When you use the Deployment Wizard or software delivery to deploy the spc_c1 patch, this .res file is passed as an output file. However, executing deploywrapper.exe to manually install the sp1_c1 patch update, skips many of the function calls responsible for writing the output in the .res file. Therefore, although the c:\sample.res argument is required, the file is not created.

***Important Note: The C1 patch can be installed only on the following agent versions:

  • CA ITCM R12.5 SP1
  • CA ITCM R12.5 SP1 Feature Pack1- RO49803
  • CA ITCM OSIM&SD KUBUNTU SUPPORT- RO49803
  • CA ITCM LINUXBOOTIMAGE-WIN8&2012- RO55831
