Dell OpenManage Server Agent version 4.2.2.

Dell OpenManage Server Agent provides fault management, prefailure, asset,
and inventory information to management applications. Dell OpenManage
Server Agent installs from the "Dell OpenManage Server Assistant"
applications CD.

Dell OpenManage Server Agent provides extensive online documentation,
including a "User's Guide," a "Messages Reference Guide," and reference
Guides for two systems management standards: the common information model

standards: CIM, Desktop Management Interface (DMI), and SNMP. The

UNATTENDED INSTALLATION FOR WINDOWS NT AND WINDOWS 2000

Dell OpenManage Server Agent 4.2.2 provides support for unattended

the Dell OpenManage Server Agent User's Guide.

The following information supplements the procedures provided in
the "User's Guide":

NOTE: Executing the unattended install program "setup.exe /s" is an
asynchronous operation like many Microsoft Windows applications. After you
have entered the "setup.exe /s" command, the task returns to the batch
stream or command line prompt while the unattended install continues to
execute in the background.

1. If you want to pause the batch stream until the unattended install
completes, type:

start /wait setup.exe /s

2. To activate the Dell OpenManage Server Agent after performing the
unattended installation, reboot the system.
