Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Customization Parameters

REINSTALL and REMOVE customization CLI parameters provide a way to customize the exact software features to install, reinstall, or uninstall when running silently or unattended. With the customization parameters, you can selectively install, reinstall, or uninstall software features for different systems using the same unattended installation package. For example, you can choose to install Server Administrator, but not Remote Access Controller service on a specific group of servers, and choose to install Server Administrator, but not Storage Management Service, on another group of servers. You can also choose to uninstall one or multiple features on a specific group of servers.

  • NOTE: Type the REINSTALL, and REMOVE CLI parameters in upper case, as they are case-sensitive.
  • NOTE: The software feature IDs mentioned in the following table are case-sensitive.
Table 1. Software Feature IDs . The following table lists the software feature IDs.

You can include the REINSTALL customization parameter on the command line and assign the feature ID (or IDs) of the software feature that you would like to reinstall. An example is:

                                 msiexec.exe /i SysMgmt.msi REINSTALL=BRCM /qb. 
                                 
                              

This command runs the installation for OpenManage Systems Management and reinstall only the Broadcom agent, in an unattended but not silent mode.

You can include the REMOVE customization parameter on the command line and assign the feature ID (or IDs) of the software feature that you would like to uninstall. For example:

                                 msiexec.exe /i SysMgmt.msi REMOVE=BRCM /qb. 
                                 
                              

This command runs the installation for OpenManage Systems Management and uninstalls only the Broadcom agent, in an unattended but not silent mode.

You can also choose to install, reinstall, and uninstall features with one execution of the msiexec.exe program. For example:
                                    msiexec.exe /i SysMgmt.msi REMOVE=BRCM /qb 
                                 
This command runs the installation for managed system software, and uninstalls the Broadcom agent. This execution is in an unattended but not silent mode.
  • NOTE: A Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) is 128 bits long, and the algorithm used to generate a GUID guarantees each GUID to be unique. The product GUID uniquely identifies the application. In this case, the product GUID for Server Administrator is {54C04D53-C3C3-46EA-A75F-7AFF4BEB727C}.
