Does unattend installation mean it installs over a network

    Hi all. Im new to networking and have just started doing
    my MCSE. I know this is going to be a stupid question but
    when you do an unattended installation after creating your
    script files using setup manager, do you run the winnt32
    command from the server or do you run this command from
    each of the computers you are installing win 2000 (which
    will include the attend.txt file in the shared folder on
    server in the command line).

    Thanks

    Depending on what type of installation it is, an unatended installation can
    be from a CD, from a network drive or any number of other ways. Unattend
    means that you will not need to answer the questions during the installation
    which you have already provided in the config files

    HTH.

    You run the command from each workstation. The command
    should point to the location of winnt.exe or winnt32.exe.

    Note: There are switches to the command, such
    as /unattend:%AnswerFile% /udf:%CompterName% ...etc., that
    are made when doing an unattended install. You must know
    those as well.

    Thanks for your help

    The answer what i was looking for was do you run the
    command from the server or each workstation.

    Thanks again

    Look at it this way... if you ran the "command" from the
    server, then you would be installing on the server.
    Likewise with each workstation.
