    What are all the switches for sdclient.exe

    Rookie

      Could anyone tell me what are all the available switches for sdclient.exe

       

      I tried to find out through the command prompt to no avail. Quick search only revealed a small number of switches and I believe their are more.

          There have been some new ones added but the following doc has the sdclient command line discussed. http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2575 (page 14)

                    I created a document, just waiting for it to be approved, but until then here you go.

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    SDCLIENT.EXE supports the following command-line parameters:
                    sdclient.exe /p="" [/g=] [/All] [/R] [/N] [/An] [/Ac] [/Ab] [/fui] [/msi] [/exe] [/bw=xxx] [/E]

                     

                     

                    /p=Package Path. The package path must be specified, regardless of the package type. This parameter specifies the UNC or URL path to the package that is to be installed on the local client.
                    /g=Package GUID. For ESWD or AutoINstall packages. This parameter specifies the GUID for the package. The package GUID is used to check the local .CFG file cache for a copy of the package's .CFG file.
                    /AllUninstall Flag. This flag is set to indicate that the ESWD or MSI package should be uninstalled rather than installed. This flag is case-sensitive (/all won't work).
                    /RAlways Reboot Flag. This flag indicates that the client should always be rebooted after the package installation. Not all MSI packages follow this guideline.
                    /NNever Reboot Flag. This flag indicates that the client should never be rebooted after the package installation.
                    /AnSilent Installation Flag. This flag indicates that the installation should be silent. This means that no UI, or the smallest amount of UI possible, should be displayed during the installation.
                    /AcDisable Cancel Flag. This flag prohibits the user's ability to cancel the installation.
                    /AbNo Background Flag. This flag only applies to ESWD packages. When a package is being installed, the blue background won't be displayed.
                    /fuiFull UI Flag. This flag indicates that the full UI for legacy and MSI packages should be used.
                    /msiMSI Package Flag. This flag indicates that the package path points to an MSI package file.
                    /exeExecutable Package Flag. This flag indicates that the package path points to a legacy package or a generic executable file.
                    /AhApplication Healing Flag. This flag indicates that the script is installed with the Application Healing option.
                    /bw=xxxBandwidth Requirements. Specifies a minimum bandwidth requirement for the package script to be run.
                    /FGeneric File Flag. This flag causes SDCLIENT.EXE to download the file to the LDCLIENT directory.
                    /rebootInitiates a reboot on the machine. This must be called from within a scheduled task, running sdclient.exe /reboot from the command window will not do anything.
                    /DWhen this flag is specified, a debug window will be created and debug messages will be displayed during package installation.
                    /VVerbose Mode, when this flag is specified, the log file entries and debug message will contain more detail on the installation progress.
