  • Sharath,


    You can find a full reference for these commands in the following BOL Reference:


    How to: Install SQL Server 2005 from the Command Prompt


    If you have trouble working with them in test, post your full command line call back in this post, and we can try and see what is not working correctly.  I have written a number of installs from the command line, and it isn't overly difficult to do.  An example can be found in my post on the following thread:

  • What specific components are you wanting installed?

    I want the full install of the client.

    Today i delivered 10 shystems with Sql Client and the users say that this is not the full install...

  • Try running it with only the parent component name:


    Start /wait \\fileserver\shareddrive\Tools\setup.exe /qb ADDLOCAL=Client_Components


    If you specify the parent name, it installs the child components.


    Have you checked the machine to see that the components weren't actually installed correctly?  I would suspect that if you check, the components you listed would be installed completely, and the other components would not be.
