WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Overview 

The MSI installers for version 9.0.1 of the MRC client agent include command-line arguments that allow you to upgrade existing clients silently and retain their current settings, if preferred.

Notes:

  • Run the commands in the following procedures with Administrator permissions.
  • Avoid using relative paths when running the commands. Since you are running them with Administrator permissions, the working directory is %WINDIR%\System32.

 
Complete the following procedures according to your upgrade preferences. Replace fileName.msi in either procedure with one of the following:
DWRCS_NT_32.msi
DWRCS_Vista_32.msi
DWRCS_Vista_64.msi
DWRCS_XP_64.msi

To upgrade the MRC client agent and retain its current settings:
msiexec /qn /i fileName.msi KEEPSETTINGS=1
