Hello Team,

I did some search about my issue and did find some older threads regarding MQ6 or MQ7 but none of them was pointing out this one.

Objective of the task is, to install the MQ9 package silent as descripted in here (its my first post, so I need to cut the URL)
h_t_t_p_:_/_/_www_ibm_com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_9.0.0/com.ibm.mq.sce.doc/q120000_.htm

The surrounding script generates an MSIEXEC command like this (its all one line):
Code:
msiexec /i "C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\msi\IBM MQ.msi" /l* .\201611151023_msi.log /q PGMFOLDER="c:\mqm" DATFOLDER="c:\mqm\DATA" ADDLOCAL="Server,Client,Explorer,JavaMsg,Toolkit"  USEINI="C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\response.ini" TRANSFORMS="C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\msi\1033.mst" AGREETOLICENSE="YES"

PGMFOLDER is accepted, but somehow the DATFOLDER is not processed, even so it is listed in the parameter summary of the msi log file:
Code:
Property(S): ARPINSTALLLOCATION = C:\mqm\
Property(S): AMQUISEQ = 0
Property(S): CURRENTDIRECTORY = C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer
Property(S): USEINI = C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\response.ini
Property(S): AdminUser = 1
Property(S): ADDLOCAL = Server,Client,Explorer,JavaMsg,Toolkit
Property(S): DATFOLDER = c:\mqm\DATA
Property(S): PGMFOLDER = c:\mqm

Property(S): AMQFEATUREPREREQLIST = 
Property(S): ProductState = -1
Property(S): TRANSFORMSATSOURCE = 1
Property(S): TRANSFORMSSECURE = 1
Property(S): AGREETOLICENSE = YES
Property(S): TRANSFORMS = |C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\msi\1033.mst
Property(S): RecacheTransforms = C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\msi\1033.mst
Property(S): MsiLogFileLocation = C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\.\201611151108_msi.log
Property(S): AMQINSTALLINSTANCENAME = Installation1
Property(S): AMQLOSEFEATURESLIST = 
Property(S): CostingComplete = 1
Property(S): SOURCEDIR = C:\install\IBM_MQ_9.0.0.0_WINDOWS\MQServer\msi\
Property(S): SourcedirProduct = {80B9C730-0533-4060-A44B-16549476F111}
Property(S): OutOfDiskSpace = 0
Property(S): OutOfNoRbDiskSpace = 0
Property(S): PrimaryVolumeSpaceAvailable = 0
Property(S): PrimaryVolumeSpaceRequired = 0
Property(S): PrimaryVolumeSpaceRemaining = 0
Property(S): AMQHAVELAUNCHPAD = 1
Property(S): AMQFEATUREPREREQ = 0
Property(S): AMQSOFTPREREQ = 0
Property(S): AMQWARNFEATURES = 0
Property(S): AMQPGMREGPATH = C:\mqm
Property(S): AMQPGMQUOTEPATH = C:\mqm
Property(S): AMQTOOLKITPATH = C:\mqm\tools\c\samples\bin
Property(S): AMQSHORTPGMREGPATH = C:\mqm
Property(S): AMQDATREGPATH = C:\ProgramData\IBM\MQ
Property(S): AMQDATQUOTEPATH = C:\ProgramData\IBM\MQ
Property(S): AMQLOGREGPATH = C:\ProgramData\IBM\MQ\log
Property(S): AMQLOGQUOTEPATH = C:\ProgramData\IBM\MQ\log
Property(S): AMQGUI = 1
Property(S): AMQSERVICENAME = MQ_Installation1
Property(S): AMQSTARTSERVICE = 1
Property(S): AMQPATHPROPERTY0 = C:\ProgramData\IBM\MQ\Config\
Property(S): AMQPROPERTYCOUNTER = 1
Property(S): ProductToBeRegistered = 1
MSI (s) (C4:C0) [11:11:07:598]: Product: IBM MQ (Installation1) -- Installation operation completed successfully.

As You can see, it still installs the data folder to "C:\programdata\IBM...." and not to "c:\mqm\data".

I found similar command lines in the forum as mentioned above. So I would expect the line itself to be correct, or at which point did I left the track?

thanks in advance
Carsten
PS: be patient with me. I am with IBM MQ since 16 days now, and never touched it before

Is it possible that you have got another installation of MQ already on that machine? If so, the data directory cannot be changed in a subsequent install.

Quoted from the page you linked to:-
IBM Knowledge Center wrote:
Note: If you have any previous installations of IBM MQ on your machine the default locations of the program and data files might change. For further information, see Program and data directory locations. If you have already previously completed this scenario, and want to repeat it with a single, fresh installation using the default locations, remove your previous installation before starting the scenario again. To uninstall an existing instance of IBM MQ from your machine, see Uninstalling IBM MQ.


Hope that helps.
Cheers
Morag

Thanks morag,

You hit the point.
I am working on a test machine to develop the silent package.
I used the MSIEXEC to uninstall the package and deleted the remaining folder structure.
What I missed were the 4 reg values at "HKLM\software\[Wow6432Node\]IBM\Websphere MQ".

After deletion of those, the next attempt was successful.

[Solved]... at least for now

best
Carsten
