Pushing out the Symantec System Recovery 2011 from SSR 2011 MS

Created: 30 Sep 2011 • Updated: 03 Oct 2011 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

1) I just needed to know when i push out the  Symantec System Recovery 2011 client from my Management Solution to one of my servers, is it a silent install or would it require some user interface.

2) Without pushing it out, where can i get a manual download of it. Can you send me a link.

3) Does it automatically remove previous clients of besr 8, besr 8.5, 9 and update it  and does it keep the previous liscense intact ?

.\install\setup.exe /s /L1033 /v"SILENTMANAGED=1 REBOOT=Force /qn...

then yes it will install silently and reboot the client.

Be sure to locate your BESRInstall.txt and the new SSRinstall.txt files if upgrading fails. To be sure that a log file is created at a place where you can find it, change the Command line from question 1 to:

... /l*voicewarmup c:\SSRInstall.txt...
