Deploying client installers using the command line

Using the command to deploy SYmantec Endpoint Encryption Client enables you to specify an output log file that you can use to troubleshoot any installation problems.

              NOTE

              If you run the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client installation package to modify the number of features that are installed on the client computer, first ensure that the disk is already fully encrypted or decrypted. If disk encryption or decryption is in progress, wait until the operation is complete.

      To run the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client installer

1. Copy the installation .MSI file to the local hard disk of the computer on which you want to run the installer.


• If the computer's operating system is 32-bit, copy the SEE Client.msi file.
• If the computer's operating system is 64-bit, copy the SEE Client x64.msi file.


2. Depending on the version of Microsoft Windows, do one of the following:


Windows 8.x – From the Start screen, access the Apps menu. In the Windows System section, right-click
Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. If you are prompted, enter the credentials of a domain
administrator account.
Windows 10 – Click Start > All Apps. In the Windows System section, right-click Command Prompt and select
Run as administrator. If you are prompted, enter the credentials of a domain administrator account.


3. In the Command Prompt window, enter one of the following commands:


• To perform a fresh installation:
MSIEXEC /i "[path]\msifile" /l*v "[logpath]\logfile"


• To modify an existing setup by installing an additional feature:
MSIEXEC /i "[path]\msifile" REINSTALLMODE=vemus ADDLOCAL=ALL /l*v "[logpath]\logfile"


Where [path]\msifile represents the path and name of the MSI file, and [logpath]\logfile represents the path
and name of the output log file.
