Actifio Windows Connector Silent Install Tips

When you want to deploy the connector initially, you may want to install the filter driver or not. Below are the values you can use to achieve this:

/NORESTART – This will avoid a restart, which is normally the case when installing the agent above versions 6.0.3, but is normally a good idea just in case.

/SILENT – to install without prompting

/VERYSILENT – this will suppress any pop-ups, and for remote installs, or packaged installs this is likely the option you want.

If a restart is necessary and the ‘/NORESTART’ command isn’t used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it’s very silent it will reboot without asking.

/TYPE=full or compact – for full install or compact to not install the filter driver – you can also elect to not enter a type, and you will get the installation without the change tracking filter driver.

/LOG=”logfile.log” – the name and location of where you would like the install log stored. Use full path if required i.e. C:\TEMP\Logfile.log

/SUPPRESSMSGBOXES – Instructs Setup to suppress message boxes. Only has an effect when combined with ‘/SILENT’ or ‘/VERYSILENT’.

So the actual command line would like the following if you wanted the filter driver installed:

connector-win32.exe /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /VERYSILENT /TYPE=full /LOG="Actifio_agent_install.log"

or if you don’t want the filter driver running (such as inside a VMware Virtual Machine) run the following:

connector-win32.exe /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART /VERYSILENT /LOG="Actifio_agent_install.log"

And for Uninstall you can either goto Add/Remove Programs and choose to uninstall the Actifio Connector, or run the following commands:

1. Open a command prompt and go to C:\Program Files\Actifio\

2. Run the command:

unins000.exe /SILENT

You should be good to go now.
