Introduction:

The best way to install DSM Explorer/DSM Reporter is via CA Software Delivery.

But, if there is a need to install them locally, they can be installed using an MSIEXEC command.

Question:

Is there a command line installation for DSM Explorer + DSM Reporter option?

Environment:
CA Client Automation - All Versions
Answer:

DSM Explorer and DSM Reporter can be installed using MSIEXEC commands.

As a pre-requisite, the target must have at least the CA Client Automation Basic Agent installed.

Copy the "\WindowsProductFiles_x86\Explorer" folder from the CA Client Automation Installation media to the target and execute the MSIEXEC command listed below.

 

DSM Explorer

msiexec.exe /i Explorer.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL ADMINCONSOLE_MANAGER=<Domain Manager Name>
ALLUSERS=1 CAF_INSTALL_SERVICE=0 CAF_START_SERVICE=1 /qb

Example: If the Domain Manager name is "XYZ", the command would be:

msiexec.exe Explorer.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL ADMINCONSOLE_MANAGER=XYZ ALLUSERS=1 CAF_INSTALL_SERVICE=0 CAF_START_SERVICE=1 /qb

 
 

DSM Explorer + DSM Reporter

msiexec.exe /i Explorer.msi ADDLOCAL=Explorer,ExpAM,ExpRC,ExpSD,ExpSDB,ExpSDM ADMINCONSOLE_MANAGER=<Domain Manager Name>
ALLUSERS=1 CAF_INSTALL_SERVICE=0 CAF_START_SERVICE=1 /qb

Example: If the Domain Manager name is "XYZ", the command would be:

msiexec.exe /i Explorer.msi ADDLOCAL=Explorer,ExpAM,ExpRC,ExpSD,ExpSDB,ExpSDM ADMINCONSOLE_MANAGER=XYZ ALLUSERS=1 CAF_INSTALL_SERVICE=0 CAF_START_SERVICE=1 /qb
