TCAM remote installation

To install TCAM remotely, you should be familiar with related Microsoft tools and procedures.

Group policy

Administrators of Windows Server systems may be able to use Group Policy to install TCAM remotely. For more information, please see “How to use Group Policy to remotely install software in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Server 2003” (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816102) on the Microsoft website.

To customize deployment using command line parameters such as PAMD, AMD1, and REBOOT_ACCEPTED, you must apply the proper MST transform file to the installation. For this, you can use the Orca.exe utility (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370557%28v=vs.85%29.aspx) available in the Windows SDK Components for Windows Installer Developers.

Error 1719

During TCAM remote installation through Group Policy, error 1719 may be returned (and installation may fail) on a Windows 2003 R2 32-bit target machine when policy is configured to launch installation when a particular user logs in.

Workaround: log in to the remote machine using the mstsc command with the /Admin parameter.

  1. In Windows, click Start and search for “Run”.

  2. Click “Run” in the search results to open a command line.

  3. On the Run command line, type mstsc /v:target_machine_ip /Admin where target_machine_ip is the IP address of the machine on which you are installing TCAM.

  4. Click OK to start Remote Desktop Connection with administrative privileges.
