Hello all, I am trying to get setup so I can ship a cd to some remote clients and have them use the firewall client on there pc's. I copied the share from the ISA server and burned it to cd. The installation always fails on the first try. then it will install fine on the second try. I also am having some real trouble getting it to do a quiet install with a batch file. Any ideas would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi J,

Interesting finding. It may be that the client is trying to contact the ISA Server for more information but can't get to it before the software is installed.

Does the quite install work over the network?

Thanks!

Tom

I should clarify on the quiet install. It does work I guess with the q switch. meaning it does what is is supposed to. It does not however do a complete install w/o some interaction and disply on the screen.
The switch is really not supposed to prevent this so on effect is working. I am looking for a complete install w/o any user interaction or even display of any kind. So I am not sure this is possible. This si the case when run from the cd or from the network. Maybe the answer is in switches for the MSI instead of the setup for the client??????

I use a logonscript to map the Z: drive and connect to the server sharepoint with the client software, then use the .msi switches. This does a quiet install with no prompts whatsoever.

net use z: \\servername\share$
z:
msiexec /i "ms_fwc.msi" /q

I have deployed the FWC on a test network by assigning it in group policy. It has worked so far every time I have used it.
