Desription:

Audit's Policy Manager install will prompt you for the location of the EEM (eITM) server and will install it locally if you choose to do so. This document is written for those who wish to silently install EEM on a remote machine prior to installing the Audit Policy Manager.

Solution:

The following document describes how to create a response file when installing the EEM (previously called EIAM) on a standalone machine.
Please note you will need a response file for the silent install to know what options to take. This means you will need to create a response file with the exact options you will be running the silent install with. Make sure you are using a machine with the same drive letters as well as Operating System.

Go to the following directory on the install media:

<InstallMediaDrive>:\Winnt\Shared

The following command can be used to create the response file by replacing the XXX with the eIAM actual version number from the install media:
Response file names normally end in .iss such as silent.iss.

eIAMServerXXX.exe -s -a /r /f1"<FullPathToTheRepsonseFile>"

Once this is completed a silent install can be performed by running the following command and again using the version numbers that had been originally used instead of the XXX:

eIAMSeverXXX.exe -s -a /s /f1"<FullPathToTheResponseFile>" /f2"<FullPathToInstallLogFile>"
