SEPM silent installation

This issue has been solved. See solution.


Is it possible to install SEPM silently with its MSI file(Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.msi)? I tried the CLI like below:

msiexec.exe /i "symantec endpoint protection manager.msi" /qn /norestart, installation seems runs well, but I can't find default password for the user: admin, and resetpass.bat generated exception,anybody know the full parameter or document for the SEPM silent installation? I really appreciate it! Thanks a million.

SEPM cannot be installed silently but SEP clients can. Not sure why you want to install SEPM silently?

There is not be possiblity to run the SEPM silently as there is alot of the phases where user(installer admin) interferance is require.

There is no option for doing that. You cannot create answer file and do the install.

Similar thread:

In general practice SEPM deployment is not a mass deployment like SEP where you need unattended/silent install package.
