i am trying to make a unattended installation of snapdrive on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Server.
I found in the Snapdrive 6.2 Installation and Administration Guide some information to this topic.
I am using the Command wich i have placed in the batch install.bat
SnapDrive6.3P2_x64.exe /s /v "/qn SILENT_MODE=1 /Li SDInstall.log INSTALLDIR= \"c:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapDrive\" SVCUSERNAME=hostname\snapdrive SVCUSERPASSWORD=mypassword SVCCONFIRMUSERPASSWORD=mypassword SDW_WEBSRV_TCP_PORT=808 SDW_WEBSRV_HTTP_PORT=4098 TRANSPORT_PRT_SELECTION=2 TRANSPORT_PRT_PORT=80 TRANSPORT_PROTOCOL_LOGON_USERNAME=hostname\snapdrive TRANSPORT_PROTOCOL_LOGON_PASSWORD=mypassword”
when i run the Batch the installation of Snapdrive will open but it stopes at the dialog "Welcome to the Snapdirve Installation" an is waiting for me to click "Next"
I am trying to install the Version SnapDrive6.3P2_x64
I am loggend in as local Administrator
The Server is part of a Domain
it doesnt matter if I run the Batch as Administrator, this doesent change the result
Is there a diffent aproach with the Version 6.3? Any ideas would be great.
Did you ever get this resolved? I'm trying to do much the same thing, as our Dev/Test/Prod domains all use the filer and vCenter in the Prod domain, so I need to jump through hoops to set up the accounts. If I could script it and make 3 packages, so much the better!
did you get the answer for the above question ,because i got the same issue trying to find the answer ..please let me know if you guys resolved it....:)

The HTTPS transport could easily be RPC and not need the password. I used it this way because we have Prod/Dev/Test without trusts, so this worked easier for us. VSC is on the same host as VC for us. But that's what I'm using in my silent installations......
Thanks for the reply

what is SVCUSERNAME?
Hi Learn s
>what is SVCUSERNAME?
Copying from Install and Admin Guide IAG. (page 159)
IAG link -- https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_get_file/ECMP1140245
SVCUSERNAME=DOMAIN\username Specifies the domain and user name that SnapDrive uses during the unattended installation
Hope this helps
There are few examples in IAG document (pg 164 to pg 165).You may consider looking at those
