Deploy ArcGIS Business Analyst Server 9.3 remotely!

by Maia Pawooskar

ArcGIS Business Analyst Server has just had its second major release. Being two is so different, it is like being a toddler!

At version 9.3, ArcGIS Business Analyst Server installation has the look and feel of its parent, ArcGIS Server. In case you did not know, Business Analyst Server is an extension to ArcGIS Server.

An administrator can now deploy ArcGIS Business Analyst Server version 9.3 remotely! To do this the administrator/user will simply perform an admin install. Admin installs can be performed using the Windows Installer (MSI), which gives you more flexibility and advantages than the Setup executable.

ArcGIS Business Analyst Server version 9.3 has two setups, the data and the server setup. The MSI command for both the setups is the same.

msiexec /A (path to the setup)setup.msi

Using the MSI command the admin creation can even be performed silently with this command:

msiexec /A (path to the setup)setup.msi /qb TARGETDIR=(the location where you want the admin created)

The TARGETDIR can be a network location. The admin install will set up the structure needed for you to run the setup off of that drive instead of from the DVDs.

This can be handy if your server is remote, parked somewhere in one of your sprawling server farms and has no access to media drives. You would simply do the admin install over a network drive, then map the network drive to your remote server and start the installation!
