I have upgraded the FIM Portal and Sync Service server from FIM 2010 to FIM 2010 R2 SP1. Everything looks good. I am now ready to upgrade the client 'Add-ins and extensions' using SCCM, so I need to use an unattended installation.
Everything I have found online is only useful for a new installation of the client. In my case, the workstations have the FIM 2010 client installed. When I attempt to perform a basic unattended installation, the install fails.
Is it possible to upgrade the client 'Add-ins and extensions' to FIM 2010 R2 without uninstalling the old client first? If so, what would be the syntax?
A sample syntax of a new install is as follows:
msiexec /I "Add-ins and extensions.msi" /quiet ADDLOCAL=PasswordClient RMS_LOCATION=server1.domain.com SITELOCK_DOMAIN=fimportal.domain.com;fimportal;server1;server1.domain.com REGISTRATION_PORTAL_URL=https://passwordregistration.domain.com /norestart /l*v c:\fimpwext.log
Thanks for the info, Brian.
An MSP doesn't apply in this case, however, since this is not a patch. The upgrade to R2 is a version upgrade, so there is not MSP available. Please correct me if I'm mistaken.
OK missed that. I don't believe there is a direct upgrade story. You'd need to uninstall the existing version and then install the latest.
