1. Copy the folder holding the installation files to the root of the C drive. Now go to properties of the C drive and then to the Security tab. Make sure Local System and the account we are using for the installation has full control. Also make sure the account being used is part of Domain Admins in Active Directory.

2. Go to the folder which has the installation files and make changes to the silent installer script as mentioned in the following article.

3. Now run the silent installation script after making the changes on the active node first. Once successful then failover to the passive node, then run the silent installation script on that node.
