Summary

This step-by-step guide explains how to use the command-line tools to quietly install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 and Microsoft Windows 2000. A quiet installation is one in which you are not prompted and you do not see any messages.

NOTE: This article addresses only how to install the FrontPage Server Extensions.

System requirements

The following list outlines the recommended hardware, software, network infrastructure, and service packs that you will need:
  • One of the following configurations:
    • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 or later and the World Wide Web service installed
    • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Service Pack 6a or later, with Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0 or later and the World Wide Web service installed
    NOTE: On the Windows operating system, the security features of FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions require the NTFS file system. Windows 2000 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data. If you try to install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions to a hard disk formatted with FAT, your default virtual server may not be extended. Also, any sites that you create on that virtual server will not be secure.
  • Administrative rights on the server

    If you are working remotely, you must have administrative rights on the remote server, and you must have a copy of Owsrmadm on the local computer.

    For more information about how to administer remotely, click the Using the Administration Tools Remotely link on the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sppt/sharepnt/proddocs/admindoc/ows000.mspx
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later
  • Between 30 megabytes and 70 megabytes (MB) of available hard disk space

    Additional hard disk space is needed to host the Web sites and subwebs your users will create. These requirements are guidelines only, and vary depending on the platform and operating system.

How to customize the Cfgquiet.ini file

To specify the options you want to extend, customize the Cfgquiet.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Notepad.
  2. On the File menu, click Open.
  3. Locate and open the Cfgquiet.ini file. By default, this file is located in the root folder.
  4. Change the following items:
    NumberofServers   Specifies how many servers to configure. It accepts a
                      numerical value, such as 1.
    
    IndexServer       Controls whether the indexing service is started 
                      automatically. The supported values are On and Off.
                      Either value is acceptable; set it according to
                      whether or not you want to use Index Server. 
    
    VRootMDPath       Specifies the metabase path for the Web site you want to
                      extend. The default is /LM/W3SVC/1. Change this only if
                      you have a custom metabase path.
    
    Discussions       Controls whether Web document discussions are available.
                      The supported values are On and Off. For a setup with
                      FrontPage Server Extensions only, set this value to Off.
    
    Notifications     Controls whether Web subscriptions are available. The
                      supported values are On and Off. For a setup with 
                      FrontPage Server Extensions only, set this value to Off.
    
    SiteProvision     Specifies the type of installation. For an installion 
                      with FrontPage Server Extensions only, set this option
                      to PUBLISH. Because the default is SHAREPTHP, you need
                      to change this for an installation with FrontPage Server 
                      Extensions.
    					
  5. On the File menu, click Save to save your changes.
  6. On the File menu, click Exit to quit Notepad.

How to quietly extend the server from the command line

  1. On the Windows Start menu, click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd.
  3. At the command prompt, type
    cd drive:\Program files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Web server extension\50\Bin
    where drive represents the disk drive that contains the FrontPage Server Extensions.

    Press ENTER.
  4. Type setupse.exe /q logfile=C:\cfgquiet.ini and press ENTER. The default configuration of the Server Extensions starts.
NOTE: Information about Setup is stored in a log file located in the \Windows\Temp folder.
