Creating a log file with /l

Use the /l switch if you want to log general information about the installation to a log file with the specified path and filename.


You can specify one or more of the following parameters for the /l switch.

Parameter Effect
I Logs status messages
w Logs non fatal warnings
e Logs all error messages
a Logs initiated actions
r Logs action-specific records
u Logs user requests
c Logs initial user-interface parameters
m Logs error messages about out-of-memory warnings or fatal exits
o Logs error messages resulting from insufficient hard disk space
p During installation to a server
Logs terminal properties
v Logs very detailed information
* Applies all parameters except v, recording all information in a single log file

Location and filename of log file

The /l switch can take an additional parameter: the location and filename of the log file. Type /l followed by a space; followed by an opening quotation mark, the path to the log fileclosing quotation mark. Heres the command-line syntax (where log_file is the location and filename of the log file):

\\server\path\Setup.exe /l "log_file "



The following sample command line uses the default parameters of the /l switch to log information in the file C:\install.txt during installation:

\\server\path\Setup.exe /l "C:\install.txt"


Using the /q switch with /l

You can use the /q and /l switches together. The following samplecommand line uses /q to suppress the user interface during installation and record errors in the specified log file:

\\server\path\Setup.exe /q /l "C:\Logs\My_Log.txt"


Controlling reboots

You can force a reboot after installation by using the /forcerestartswitch in your command line.

\\server\path\Setup.exe /forcerestart

You can also suppress a reboot after installation by using the /norestart switch. Heres the command-line syntax:

\\server\path\Setup.exe /norestart


Using public properties

To customize the installed software, you can use a variety of public properties in your command line.


Basic syntax

Public properties are case-sensitive; they must be typed in capital letters, and they cannot contain spaces.

To use a public property in a command line, you must type the name of the public property in capital letters, followed directly by an equals sign ( = ), followed directly by the desired value.


Values are also case-sensitive, but they can contain both uppercase andlowercase letters. A value can be a text string (such as a feature name) or a number. If a value contains spaces, you must enclose it in quotation marks to ensure that it is read as a single unit.

PROPERTY="value containing spaces"
