OS: Server 2008 R2
Installer version: 5.0.7601.17514
I'm trying to do an automated install using msiexec but it keeps poping up and just showing me the help. It would be nice if maybe it would give me a reason : )
Here's the command line I'm running:
msiexec /q /i “Y:\FIM\FIM2010R2\Synchronization Service\Synchronization Service.msi" STORESERVER=LocalMachine SQLDB=FIMSynchronization SERVICEACCOUNT=ACCOUNT1 SERVICEPASSWORD=Password1 SERVICEDOMAIN=DOMAIN1 GROUPADMINS=FIMSyncAdmins GROUPOPERATORS=FIMSyncOperators GROUPACCOUNTJOINERS=FIMSyncJoiners GROUPBROWSE=FIMSyncBrowse GROUPPASSWORDSET=FIMSyncPasswordSet FIREWALL_CONF=1 /L*v C:\mylogfile.txt
I've also tried various swtiches like "/qb", etc... Any idea where I can find what error msiexec is getting? If I run the msi file directly it installs fine.

Wow Nigel, that was the issue. I copied the original string straight off Microsoft's web site. One would think after many decades in technology I would pick up things like that : )
Thank you very much!
