RTC Client (silent) install using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager ?

Kenneth Munch (13522024) | asked Feb 06 '14, 7:04 a.m.
My customer installs / patches all end user (as in laptop) software using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.
Does anyone have any experience installing RTC clients, using this tool ?

Why not stick with Installation Manager? It can run in silent mode to install and update the IBM applications.

installing the RTC client can be as easy as unzipping it to disk. Usually it installs with Installation Manager because that will remember
a) it is installed
b) where it is installed
c) into what is is installed, in case you use the RTC client plugin in an existing Eclipse

Seems your best two options to run this from MSSCM would be:
1. Make MSSCM copy the client Zip file to a predefined location, unzip and make a link to the eclipse.exe in the start folder
2. Make MSSCM run IBM Installation Manager in silent mode, using a response file (like Donald commented).
More info for this available in the documentation if you use the search field to look for "silent install".

If this answers your question please mark it as accepted.
