Unattend Client installation

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

we've created an Installation Package by the Management Console for the Client. If we start the created EXE-File by hand, the installer prompts a  request Window for the installation path on the Client Machine. 

Question is, why promps the installer the window? How can we resolve the problem? We want  deploy the Client by an Installation Package with SCCM. Alternatively we may use the Command Line Parameters. But in the Docu there is no Parameter to commit the "Client Group" in the Management Console.

Thanks

We don't use SCCM but we do install it silently via batch script using the below command.

START /WAIT !MEP_Location!\Setup.MBEndpointAgent.Full.exe /quiet GROUP="!MEP_Group!"

You would change !MEP_Location! to where the setup file is stored and !MEP_Group! to the group string where you want the endpoint to be in the Cloud Console. You can find that by clicking on "Add Endpoints" > "How to Automatically Specify Group Assignment" button within the Cloud Console.

Hello

we get anyway an Dialog with the questions for the Client installation path. The Installation File to install the "Managed Client" was created with the Malwarebytes Management Console (Installation Package).

Thanks you

This is outlined in the Administrators Guide from the console, but you can use the /quiet argument to bypass any prompts

Hi @Heinrich, please use the MSI, the EXE installation package does not support any switches.

Use something like this:

MSIEXEC /a C:\[path to]\[setupfile].msi /qn

Or if you want to log the install, use something like this:

MSIEXEC /a C:\[path to]\[setupfile].msi /qn /lv %userprofile%\desktop\mbamInstallLog.txt

Moving thread to correct section. Dcollins was thinking this was the EP product at first, like Kalrand initially thought. The tactics they provided are true for the cloud based solution and its installers. With the server based on-premises solution, that uses MBMC, Malwarebytes Management Console, it can create an offline EXE and MSI for manual or 3rd party deployment, however the EXE one is not able to use any switches.

Hi,

we've created an installation package with all options ( include Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit).

The installer (started with the command "msiexec /a <path to msi file>\xxx.msi /qn /lv <logfile.log>") installs only the "malwarebytes' managed client". The programs Anti-Exploid and Anti-Malware are not installed. The install log shows no failures.

Any ideas?

@Heinrich May I see the msi log?

Just in case, there are some things to be aware of; the file must copied to the machine and ran from a local drive, running it from a network location will not work. Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit are part of the Malwarebytes Managed Client entry shown in Programs and Features, though later on Anti-Exploit can and will auto-update (if allowed in policy), and create a separate entry for itself in Programs and Features. Anti-Malware will not create an entry for itself and will remain under Malwarebytes Managed Client.
