BizTalk Server 2010 enables automated electronic software distribution, also known as silent installation. You use silent installation to install BizTalk Server 2010 in an automated way on computers that have the same configurations. Silent installation lets system administrators who want to install BizTalk Server 2010 on remote computers do so without user intervention. With a silent installation, a user does not have to monitor the installation and provide input.
When you perform a silent installation, the installation program does not display messages. Instead, a log file captures the installation information that includes whether the installation was successful. You can then review the log file and determine the results of the installation.
To perform a BizTalk Server 2010 silent installation
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
2. To start the silent installation, at the command prompt, type setup.exe /, and then press ENTER.
3. Check the installation status in the log file.
