INSTALLDIR=\"C:\Program Files\Symantec\Enterprise Security Manager\"
ADDLOCAL=ESMConsole EXECUTEACTION=INSTALL EDITCONSOLEUSERNAME=ESM
EDITCONSOLEPASSWORD=esm4now CHECKBOXINSTALLLIVEUPDATE=1"

Hi Pete ,

I'm looking for ESM command line interface . I think the above solution you gave is for installing ESM console silently (using command).

Thanks

CLI is used to get the information, config and policy setting without use of UI. As far i know it does not help to install the modules.
