The task of having an unattended installation and configuration has two steps involved:
Step 1: Install BizTalk Server by using setup.exe.
Step 2: Configure BizTalk Server by using Configuration.exe.
Note Both these steps need to be performed for having a fully installed and configured BizTalk Server.
Step 1: Install BizTalk Server by using setup.exe
To perform a silent installation of BizTalk Server, follow these steps:
- Open a command window.
- Type: setup.exe /CommandName Option.
- Press ENTER.
- After Biztalk Server is installed, go to "Step 2: Configure BizTalk Server by using Configuration.exe."
The following table lists the Command Names and Options that can be used during installation.
/HELP, or /?, or /H
Provides help and quick reference.
Performs an installation without a user interface. You cannot cancel the installation.
All messages are entered into the setup log file.
The Quiet flag cannot be specified for an upgrade.
<CAB file location>
Indicates the location of the redistributable CAB file.
<Configuration XML file>
Performs a silent installation of features found in the specified configuration file.
To install all features, specify ALL for the <InstalledFeature> parameter of the configuration XML file.

Suppresses restart prompts and automatic restarts at the end of the installation.
Always forces a restart after the installation is complete.
Prompts the user before restarting.
/X or /UNINSTALL

r - Action-specific records
u - User requests

Step 2: Configure BizTalk Server by using Configuration.exe
To perform a silent configuration of BizTalk Server, follow these steps:
- Open a command window.
- Type: configuration.exe /CommandLineParameter.
- Press ENTER.
The following table lists the Command Line Parameters that can be used.
Command Line Parameter
Unconfigures all features.
You can delete BizTalk Server databases after you unconfigure BizTalk Server features. Do not delete BizTalk Server databases before you run this command.
If you want to delete BizTalk Server databases after you unconfigure BizTalk Server features, we recommend that you use the net stop winmgmt command to stop the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service, which may still be running.
You must also pass the full path to the configuration XML that contains the features to install and configure. If /s is not passed, the tool runs in User Interface (UI) mode.
· Sets the full path to the log file (optional).
· Shows the valid command line parameters.
