KeyShieldClient.msi unattended installation

You can use KShieldClient.msi parameters to customize unattended installation. There are two groups of parameters. Registry configuration – for configuring authentication method and login action – and configuration file parameters – for initializing kshield.cfg with server address and port paramters.

It is possible to save unattended configuration batch (.cmd) file with specified parameters during interactive KeyShield SSO Client installation by cheking the ‘Save .cmd batch file for unattended installation.’ checkbox. Batch file will be saved as ‘install_unattended_KShieldClient.cmd’ in a directory where KShieldClient.msi file is located.

Parameters are passed to KShieldClient.msi like this:


msiexec /qn /i KShieldClient.msi CONFIGURECLIENT=yes AUTH=MANUAL LOGINACTION=OESLOGIN OESTREE=YOURTREE OVERWRITECFG=yes SERVERADDRESS=172.22.11.11 /q

if you need diagnostics log use:


msiexec /qn /i KShieldClient.msi /l*v install.log CONFIGURECLIENT=yes AUTH=MANUAL LOGINACTION=OESLOGIN OESTREE=YOURTREE OVERWRITECFG=yes SERVERADDRESS=172.22.11.11
