64 bit silent Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi:

    Is it possible to install a 64 bit SQL Server 2005 silently?. I am wondering what are the command options that are needed to do a quiet Install of Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2005 (x64) on a x64 OS.

    Any info is appreciated.

  • The 64-bit command line parameters are the same as the 32-bit parameters.  Since your install configutation options are so vast, my suggestion would be to open up template.ini (found on any SQL install media) and take a look at the numerous silent install examples in that file.  Or search Books Online for silent install instructions.  If you have specific questions, let us know.
