SQL server installation from command line and configuration file

Category: sql server setup

Question

I would like to try use command line and configutionfile to install SQL server.
I read I should put the commandline fine in the root of installation file.

We have a shared folder that has all the installation file on the network, I don't have write permission on that folder. I don't want to copy those installation files to my local too, then what other options can I do?

I tried to add in the command line to change the directory to the installation files location at start, but since it is a shared directory, I got an error: CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

I searched about that one too. But it is not what I meant.

Hi SPFriend,

Please run CMD windows as administrator and use pushd command to access remote folder. For more detail information, please refer to the following link:
