    Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

    Hi All,

    I am trying to add "Management and Monitoring Tools" component using
    Sysocmgr.exe with a script.

    If you could help me on this, I really appreciate this.

    This is very urgent

    It is pretty easy. You use a answer file that has an ini file format with a
    Components section like an unattend.txt for example, to add all the
    Management and Monitoring tools it would look like this

    -->8
    [Components]
    Netoc=On
    WbemMSI=1

    [NetOptionalComponents]
    NetCMAK=1
    NetCPS=1
    NetMonTools=1
    SNMP=1
    WBEMSNMP=1

    -->8
    Then follow this article about how to call it. These references were taken
    from the ref.chm in the deploy.cab on the Windows Server CD

    Thank you so much for your great help. Now I have one more problem. When I
    run the script, asking for the XP installation files. Can I also put this
    path inside the script somehow ? Actually what we are trying to do is to
    force this installation through AD.

    Again thank you so much

    The WbemMSI component should use a On | Off switch instead of 0 or 1. I used
    Code:
    [Components]
    WbemMSI = 1
    in c:\answer.txt and ran %windir%\system32\sysocmgr.exe /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:c:\answer.txt. The WMI windows installer provider was not installed. There is a page of all the components. Search for WbemMSI; it tells you WbemMSI = On | Off.
    Code:
    [Components]
    WbemMSI = On
    would be the correct answer file for installing WMI windows installer provider. by default, it's not installed on Windows server 2003.

    I was actually curious if anyone knew the answer to this question? I am having the same issue where i want to add the WMI Windows Information Provider on a 64-bit machine with sysocmgr.exe but it's asking for the files from the CD, i want to be able to do this through a batch file on a remote pc.

    Well, if it is asking for CD then it is working, but you need to have
    the i386 folder copied in a location and registry path set.

    Put the i386 folder from your Windows XP SP3 install location (or
    Vista if you use Vista)

    For example I put the i386 folder in the Windows folder so I use these
    Registry keys once those files are in place.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup]
    "SourcePath"="C:\\Windows"
    "ServicePackSourcePath"="C:\\windows"
    "CDInstall"=dword:00000000

    Yes, you just create a batch file or manually go edit the registry key located at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Installation Sources

    point this value to a network location where you have copied your windows files.
