I want to install an application on a CCS cluster nodes using MSIEXEC. I use clusrun while have the package available on a share. i want the installation target to be at C:\Program Files\product name location on all nodes.
clusrun hangs when I give TARGETDIRECTORY="Program Files\product name" as a parameter for MSIEXEC. A simple workaround I used:
change the clusrun.vbs as follows -
(look at <CCP ROOT>\bin\ for clusrun.vbs).
you need to look at the part that processes supplied arguments in the commnd line (line 101 through 144). It should be as follows.
for i=0 to objArgs.Count - 1 if Left(objArgs(i),1) <> "/" then
if schedname="" then set wshShell = Wscript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell") set WshEnv = WshShell.Environment("Process") schedname = WshEnv("CCP_SCHEDULER") if schedname="" then schedname = "localhost" end if end if
' ' build the command line out of everything left ' for j = i to objArgs.Count - 1 'if the argument contains a space then add quotes to maintain the structure
if InStr(objArgs(j), " ") = 0 then cmdline = cmdline + objArgs(j) + " " else cmdline = cmdline + Replace(objArgs(j),"=","=""") + """ " end if
next task.CommandLine = cmdline exit for
I could successfully use MSIEXEC with name value parameter and quotes as well as spaces.
Note: One way to overcome situations of having space in paramter is to place the command within a batch file and execute the batch file using clusrun or job submit.
