network disconnection while installing App-V 4.6 SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Im currentling installing App-V 4.6 SP2 on top on App-V 4.6 SP1 hence doing an upgrade installation. Im doing the installation using msi,mst silently. However some strange things are happening.
    The upgrade is done successfully on desktops, however while installing on laptops there is network disconnection, if i ping a server almost 4 packets are lost even though the upgrade the sucessfull. This is not acceptable while installing from SCCM as no error code is returned.

    Also i have observed that it happens in standalone installation as well but always happens if the msi is installed silently (/qn) however if installed from UI the network disconnection is not observed.

    Has anyone ever faced such network disconnection while installing SP2 on laptops and what is the possibble cause/solution for it.

    I have passed MSIRESTARTMANAGERCONTROL="Disable" in the command line and now network disconnection is not observed for both /qn as well as /qb! mode  :D.

  • Hello,

    Have you tried with /qb, and then hiding it via the SCCM settings?

    No, I have not

  • Hello

    i tried to install with /qb! however while installing user input is required to click "Yes" as a RestartManger session is opened up, although the mst does have the REBOOT=ReallySuppress property.
    How to bypass this screen?

  • Hello,

    You can read more about the restart manager here;

    You can suppress the prompt by using /qn, or by using properties;

    REBOOT does not relate to the restarts managers ability to stop / start applications that are using resources that the installer attempts to update.

  • Hello

    Using /qn means i will be getting the network disconnection hence that option is ruled out.
    If i want to use MSIRESTARTMANAGERCONTROL what value should be given so that i do not get the below screen:
