server.msi parameters RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

     

    Do you know where can I find a list of properties that I can pass to the server.msi package in order to specify the destination for the SQL Server databases (Data and Log)?

    Thanks

  • Hi Sylvain,

     

    Did you check the OCS_CommandLine.doc?

     

    In the Pools section you will find the syntax for creating a pool, e.g.:

     

    LCSCmd.exe /Forest /Action:CreatePool /PoolNameStick out tongueool01 /PoolbeStick out tongueool01-backend\Live /RefDomain:corp.woodgrovebank.com /dbdatapath:“e:\Microsoft\LC Data”/dblogpath:“d:\Microsoft\LC Log” /DynDataPath:“e:\Microsoft\LC DynData /DynLogPath:“d:\Microsoft\LC DynLog” MeetingContentPath:“d:\Microsoft\MeetingData” /MeetingMetaPath:“d:\Microsoft\MetaData”

     

    In the "Communications Server 2007 Usage Instructions, Parameters, and Switches" section, you will find a short explanation:

     

    /DBDataPath

    Specifies the folder where the database data file will be located.

     

    /DBLogPath

    Specifies the folder where DB log file is located.

     

    /DynDataPath

    Specifies the folder where dynamic database data log file should be located.

     

    /DynLogPath

    Specifies the folder where dynamic database log file should be located.

     

    Does that does not answer your question?

     

    Thanks

  • Thank you very much, I will try this immediately. I don't understand why I've not seen this section in the document.

  • Ok, I know why I cannot do what you said. In fact I want to install a Standard Edition Server. The CreatePools command is only for enterprise server.

    Maybe that I can use the same parameters during the standard Edition Server Activation, but in this case it's not documented.

    I will try.

  • I've found the properties to specify the databases paths in the command line of the server.msi package for a Standard installation of MOCS :

    DBUSERDATADRIVE ("D:" for example)

    DBUSERLOGDRIVE

    DBDYNDATADRIVE

    DBDYNLOGDRIVE

     

    DBUSERDATADIR ("D:\SQL\Data" for example)

    DBUSERLOGDIR

    DBDYNDATADIR

    DBDYNLOGDIR
