Client Modes

  • For the purposes of testing we will be installing the StifleR Client in ’Service Mode’

Automated Installation

You can install the StifleR Client interactively, via the MSI wizard based install. This is described in the StifleR Planning and Deployment guide. For the purposes of expediency and testing however, we will install the client using the MSI command line.
For example:
To install the StifleR Client with default settings, in Windows Service Based Mode with a single StifleR server defined , and the URL for the StifleR rules XML download, run the following command line from an elevated command prompt:
msiexec /i StifleR.ClientApp.Installer64.msi INSTALLTYPE=2 STIFLERSERVERS=http://yourserverfqdn:1414
STIFLERULEZURL="http://yourserverfqdn/StiflerRules/StifleRulez.xml" UPDATERULESTIMERINSEC=”3600” /qn
The full table showing the available MSI properties, switches, options and defaults can be found in the Planning and Deployment guide.
