You install the client component, FlexEngine, in NoAD mode by performing an unattended installation through a command-line interface.
- ♦ To install FlexEngine in NoAD mode, perform the appropriate procedure depending on which mode you run VMware Dynamic Environment Manager in, standalone mode or integration mode.
Option Description Standalone Mode Specify the path to the General folder in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share through the NOADCONFIGFILEPATH MSI property at the time of installation, as illustrated in the following example.
For DEM Standard Edition, replace
msiexec.exe /i "VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Enterprise 2106 10.3 x64.msi" /qn LICENSEFILE="\\filesrv1\share\VMware DEM.lic" /l* InstallDEM.log NOADCONFIGFILEPATH=\\Filesrv\DemConfig$\General
Integration Mode Set the
INTEGRATION_ENABLEDMSI property at the time of installation, as illustrated in the following example.
msiexec.exe /i "VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Enterprise 2106 10.3 x64.msi" /qn INTEGRATION_ENABLED=1
Later, in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console, import the NoAD.xml file by selecting the main menu icon, , and Import NoAD.xml. This file is contained in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager config profile file. When FlexEngine runs, it picks up the NoAD.xml file from the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager config profile file.
This command inserts the basic NoAD configuration in the HKLM registry hive and enables the NoAD mode.
