Unattended installation of IPHost Network Monitor or Remote Network Agent

How can I run unattended installation of IPHost Network Monitor and/or IPHost Network
Monitor Agent?

Q: Is it possible to run silent install of IPHost Network Monitor and/or IPHost
Network Monitor Agent?

A: To perform unattended IPHost and/or Remote Network Agent installation, first download the CMD scripts from the following links:

and the following installation scenarios:

Note:The above links to scripts/scenarios correspond to latest IPHost version. The installation scenario depends on the product version and host machine architecture, hence you need to download the scenario of the same version as the product itself and for the same architecture as the host you need to install the product on. For example: if you need to install the IPHost Network Monitor v 5.0.12338 on a 64bit Windows host you would need to use iphostmonitor-64bit.12338.iss scenario.

Please contact us if you would need installation scenarios files for versions of IPHost different from the latest one.

Now follow the below steps:

  1. Put the installer (iphostmonitor.exe or iphostagent.exe), its installation scenario (
    the corresponding .iss file) and the script (installMonitor.bat or installAgent.bat) to the
    same folder, for example to d:\install, on the host you need to install the product on.
  2. In the script (let’s use installAgent.bat for example) set INSTALL_DIR variable to the
    full path to the folder from the step 1, e.g. ‘SET INSTALL_DIR=d:\install’
  3. In the script modify the IssFile variable, so that it contains the full path to the installation
    scenario script.
  4. If you are installing an active Agent and you already know the IP address of the Agent’s Main
    Service Host, set the MainHost variable in the script to this IP, e.g. ‘MainHost=192.168.122.100’.
    If you are installing a passive Agent, set ‘MainHost=’.
  5. Open an elevated CMD shell and change directory ro the %INSTALL_DIR% folder, e.g. to
    ‘d:\install’
  6. Run the script (installMonitor.bat or installAgent.bat) without arguments and wait for it
    to complete. In case of success the script does not issue any messages to the console.
  7. Review the installation result in the script log file (installMonitor.log or installAgent.log)
