Hmm, Server Core install option in Windows server 2008 is a awesome idea. Why install a full GUI’d OS if I will always be remotely administring it using MMC’s off of my administrative machine or from another server? It’s a perfect platform for a Hyper-V host as well. To add/remove components from an OS using OCSetup, and NOT just WS2K8 (it’s in vista and other OS’s too!) Use the following link to get more info on available command switches..

Windows 7 has a new feature that makes it easier than ever to set up multi-boot scenarios on a single machine.Boot from VHD allows you to mount a vhd as a bootable drive and, as the name implies, boot from it. It’s a great scenario for creating multiple OS installations without having to create multiple OS partitions on your hard drive.

Setup command-line options for the 2007 Office system

Updated: 2009-01-15

The Setup.exe command line is used for very few operations in the 2007 Microsoft Office system. Setup recognizes the following command-line options.

NoteNote:

Although Setup recognizes only a few command-line options in the 2007 Office system, you can still make all the same modifications to the Office installation. Instead of using the command line, you use the Office Customization Tool in the 2007 Office system to set Setup properties and make other customizations. You can also edit the Config.xml file for the product that you are installing.

/admin

Runs the Office Customization Tool to create a Setup customization (MSP) file.

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /admin

/adminfile [path]

Applies the specified Setup customization file to the installation. You can specify a path to a specific customization file (MSP file) or to the folder where you store customization files.

NoteNote:

The /adminfile command-line option can be used only during initial installation of the product.

The recommended location for customization files is the Updates folder at the root of the network installation point. When you store a customization file in this folder, you do not need to specify the file on the command line. Setup automatically finds the customization file that matches the product that is being installed and applies the file during the installation.

If you store more than one customization file per product in the Updates folder, Setup applies all of the files to the installation. If you want to create unique configurations for different groups of users, you must store the customization files in a separate folder and specify the customization file you want on the command line.

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /adminfile servershareMyUpdatesEngineering.msp

where Office12 is the root of the network installation point.

/config [path]

Specifies the Config.xml file that Setup uses during the installation. By default, the Config.xml file that is stored in the core product folder directs Setup to install that product. For example, the Config.xml file in the Pro.WW folder installs Microsoft Office Professional 2007.

You can edit Config.xml to make additional customizations to the installation, including specifying one or more language versions to install. Use /config on the Setup command line to point to the location of the default Config.xml file for a product or to point to a custom Config.xml file.

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /config servershareOffice12Pro.WWConfig.xml

where Office12 is the root of the network installation point.

NoteNote:

You must use a fully qualified path. Setup does not recognize relative paths with /config.

/modify [ProductID]

Used with a modified Config.xml file to run Setup in maintenance mode and make changes to an existing Office installation. For example, you can use the /modify option to add or remove features. Look up the value of [ProductID] in the Setup.xml file for the product you want to modify.

The Setup.xml file is located in the core product folder on the network installation point. In Setup.xml, [ProductID] is equal to the value of the Id attribute of the Setup element. For example:

 - <Setup Id="Pro" Type="Product" ProductCode="{30120000-0011-0000-0000-1000000FF1CE}">

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /modify Pro /config servershareOffice12AddOutlookConfig.xml

where Office12 is the root of the network installation point.

/repair [ProductID]

Runs Setup to repair the specified product from the user’s computer. Look up the value of [ProductID] in the Setup.xml file for the product you want to modify.

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /repair Enterprise

where Office12 is the root of the network installation point, and Enterprise is the [ProductID] ([ProductID] is equal to the ID attribute of the Setup element listed in servershareOffice12Enterprise.WWsetup.xml), where Enterprise.WW is the location of the Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 installation files.

You can customize the /repair option by using it with /config and a modified Config.xml file. This is essential if you want to run a “silent” repair. In enterprise deployments, we recommend that you run a silent repair to prevent prompting users to enter information, and to prevent the installation from waiting for any user interaction, including when files are in use.

To run a silent repair

  1. Using a text editor, edit the following element attributes in the servershareOffice12Enterprise.WWSilentRepairConfig.xml file:

    <Configuration Product="Enterprise">
    
    <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
    
    </Configuration>
  2. At the command line, use the following syntax:

    servershareOffice 12setup.exe /repair Enterprise /config  servershareOffice 12Enterprise.WWSilentRepairConfig.xml

/uninstall [ProductID]

Runs Setup to remove the specified product from the user’s computer. Look up the value of [ProductID] in the Setup.xml file for the product you want to modify.

Example

servershareOffice12setup.exe /uninstall Enterprise

where Office12 is the root of the network installation point, and Enterprise is the [ProductID] ([ProductID] is equal to the ID attribute of the Setup element listed in servershareOffice12Enterprise.WWsetup.xml), where Enterprise.WW is the location of the Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 installation files.

You can customize the /uninstall option by using it with /config and a modified Config.xml file. This is essential if you want to run a “silent” uninstall. In enterprise deployments, we recommend that you run a silent uninstall to prevent prompting users to enter information, and to prevent the installation from waiting for any user interaction, including when files are in use.

To run a silent uninstall

  1. Using a text editor, edit the following element attributes in the servershareOffice12Enterprise.WWSilentUninstallConfig.xml file:

    <Configuration Product="Enterprise">
    
    <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
    
    </Configuration>
  2. At the command line, use the following syntax:

    servershareOffice 12setup.exe /uninstall Enterprise /config  servershareOffice 12Enterprise.WWSilentUninstallConfig.xml

NoteNote:

In the 2007 Office system, you cannot use the Setup.exe command line to set Windows Installer properties, such as PIDKEY or DISPLAY. Setup does not pass these properties to Windows Installer. Instead, you make these customizations by using the Office Customization Tool or Config.xml. For a complete list of Setup properties, including blocked and unsupported properties, see Setup properties in the 2007 Office system.

Ever wonder what Microsoft recommends for the best way(s) to deploy office 2007 using Active Directory group policy objects??
 
Say your exchange server that is a node in a Windows cluster services CCR environment takes a dive. how can you ensure that the messages that were in the process of being delivered or have been added to the current transaction log, but not shipped to the passive node are retrieved???
 

How the Transport Dumpster works with a CCR cluster ..

 

Transport Dumpster is a new feature of Exchange Server 2007 Hub Transport servers through which the transport can defer the deletion of certain emails in their queues. The condition for an email to be retained in the transport dumpster is that at least one of the recipient’s mailboxes must resides on a CCR mailbox server. This retained email can later be re-delivered if necessary. The amount of mail retained in the queues is a Organization wide setting on the Transport Settings container.

This only works with mailboxes on CCR, with CCR the replication of mailbox data from the active node to the passive is asynchronous and will always lag slightly behind the active node. In the event of a failure which precludes the most recent logs from being replicated over, the transport dumpster can be used to re-deliver the recent mail as this should constitute the majority of the changes in the database. Transport Dumpster operates on the hub transports within an Active Directory Site. When a lossy CCR failover occurs, a request will be made to the Hub Transport server to redeliver the lost mail. Please note that the Transport Dumpster is holding the mail that has already been delivered, any pending mail will be held in the local submission.

The Transport Dumpster is configured by default. You can view the transport dumpster settings by running get-TransportConfig. There are two important setting when configuring the transport dumpster:

MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup – The maximum size of the transport dumpster queue per storage group. This is a universal setting for all storage groups, you can’t set variable sizes for each storage group. The recommended size is 1.5 times the maximum message size that can be sent. For example, if the maximum size for messages is 10 megabytes (MB), you should configure the MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup parameter with a value of 15 MB.

MaxDumpsterTime – The amount of time an email will remain in the transport dumpster queue. This is the time a message will be retained if it is not forced out for space reasons (MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup). It is recommended that this be set to 7 days.

If either of the above is set to 0, the Transport Dumpster will be disabled.

The default setting for the Transport Dumpster are:

MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup: 18 MB

MaxDumpsterTime: 7 days (7.00:00:00)

If either the size limit or time limit is hit, mail will be removed from the queue by order of first in, first out.

You should take into account that the Transport Dumpster will require additional storage space on the Hub Transport server for the Transport Dumpster queue. The maximum size the queue is the MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup times the number of CCR Storage Groups.

To configure the Transport dumpster, please see the sample commands below.

[PS] C:>get-transportconfig

ClearCategories : True

GenerateCopyOfDSNFor : {}

InternalSMTPServers : {}

JournalingReportNdrTo : <>

MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup : 0B

MaxDumpsterTime : 00:00:00

MaxReceiveSize : unlimited

MaxRecipientEnvelopeLimit : unlimited

MaxSendSize : unlimited

TLSReceiveDomainSecureList : {}

TLSSendDomainSecureList : {}

VerifySecureSubmitEnabled : False

VoicemailJournalingEnabled : True

Xexch50Enabled : True

[PS] C:>Set-TransportConfig -MaxDumpsterTime 07.00:00:00 (This will set the max dumpster time to seven days)

[PS] C:>Set-TransportConfig -MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup 20MB (This will set the transport dumpster queue to 20 MB)

[PS] C:>get-transportconfig

ClearCategories : True

GenerateCopyOfDSNFor : {}

InternalSMTPServers : {}

JournalingReportNdrTo : <>

MaxDumpsterSizePerStorageGroup : 20MB

MaxDumpsterTime : 7.00:00:00

MaxReceiveSize : unlimited

MaxRecipientEnvelopeLimit : unlimited

MaxSendSize : unlimited

TLSReceiveDomainSecureList : {}

TLSSendDomainSecureList : {}

VerifySecureSubmitEnabled : False

VoicemailJournalingEnabled : True

Xexch50Enabled : True

When a CCR has a lossy failover, you will see the following event generated,

Event Type: Information
Event Source: MSExchangeRepl
Event Category: (1)
Event ID: 2099
Description:
Replay service requested hub server <HUB Transport ServerName> to resubmit messages between time periods 11/2/2006 8:00:14 AM and 11/2/2006 9:09:03 PM.
