Installing the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server silently from the command line

You should install SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server from within the SnapCenter user interface. However, if you cannot for some reason, you can run the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server installation program unattended in silent mode from the Windows command line.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Download the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows from C:\ProgramData\NetApp\SnapCenter\Package Repository.
    This path is accessible from the host where the SnapCenter Server is installed.
  2. Copy the installation file to the host on which you want to install the plug-in.
  3. From a Windows command prompt on the local host, navigate to the directory to which you saved the plug-in installation files.
