Unattended/Silent Installation of KAV6

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to do an unattended/silent install of KAV6? I want to update our KAV6 clients to .1611 from .1424.

 

Rather than push the client through the Admin Kit, to conserve bandwidth I want to drop the installer package on everyone's computer locally and run a silent installation. I have created a standalone installer package in the admin kit.

 

What switches do I need to use to make it silent, and minimize the amount of reboots? Also, will it uninstall the old verison first? Or just update?

I would create and run a Task for specific computers to remove .1424 first and force a reboot after completion.

 

Go to the properties of the client package and do the following:

 

General tab:

Update bases-this will include all the module updates that came out after 1611 was released. Each module update requires a reboot if installed individually but if you include them all in a package, you'll only have to reboot once.

Properties tab:

Components to be installed: Uncheck what you don't need. In my case, I uncheck Mail Anti-virus and Anti-Spam because I don't need them since we have separate systems for these.

 

Configuration file:

Create a configuration file and include it in your package.

-If you don't want any of the local tasks (scan/update) running automatically, make sure you set them to manual. You can't control these settings from the Admin kit.

 

License:

Add you license key

 

To install the client silently, run setup.exe with the following switches:

 

"C:\KAVWKS 6.0.4.1611\exec\setup.exe" /s /pALLOWREBOOT=1

where:

/s /pALLOWREBOOT=1 - silent installation with reboot (without prompting)
