Installing GeoEvent Server silently

GeoEvent Server can be installed without a user interface by running the msiexec.exe command. This will require you to manually authorize the software. The steps below will guide you through authorizing GeoEvent Server and installing silently.

Installation prerequisites include the following:

  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. To authorize GeoEvent Server silently, run the command below, editing the command line where necessary to reflect the actual authorization file location, and authorization method:

    %CommonProgramFiles%\ArcGIS\bin\SoftwareAuthorization.exe /S /Ver <ARCGIS_VERSION_NUMBER> /LIF <path to .prvc authorization file>authorizationfile.prvc

  3. Execute one of the following commands depending on how you are installing.
    • Install with an ArcGIS Server account password.

      Provide a PASSWORD property to specify the password:

      <path to ArcGIS GeoEvent Server setup>\setup.exe /qb PASSWORD=<arcgis server account password>

      For example:

      \\machinename\ArcGIS_GeoEvent_Server\setup.exe /qb PASSWORD=my.arcgis.server.password
      Remarque :

      The silent install will fail if the password is incorrect or not provided. However, if ArcGIS Server is running on a system service account (for example, Local System), you will not have to provide a password.

    • Install using a configuration file created by an ArcGIS Server setup.

      Provide a CONFIGPATH property to specify the server configuration file that will be used to configure the ArcGIS Server account. Server configuration files are created by exporting a server configuration file when installing ArcGIS Server (earlier installations or from other machines):

      <path to ArcGIS GeoEvent Server setup>\setup.exe /qb CONFIGPATH=<full path and name of the server configuration file>

      For example:

      c:\GeoEvent\setup.exe /qb CONFIGPATH=c:\Server_Config.xml
      Remarque :

      If both the configuration file and password are provided, the setup will use the password from the configuration file (and ignore the provided password).
