VSTS 2010 Feature: Silent Installation of Controller and Agent


In VSTS 2010, silent installation has been added to Controller and Agent setup.

Run setup.exe /full /q from command line.


Controller/Agent Configurations


The configuration can be done through UI or command line tools.


To configure through UI, go to Start->Programs->Microsoft Visual Studio 2010-> Microsoft Visual Studio Test Controller 2010 Configuration Tool for controller configuration; and go to go to Start->Programs->Microsoft Visual Studio 2010-> Microsoft Visual Studio Test Agent 2010 Configuration Tool for agent configuration.


To configure through command line tools, use TestControllerConfig.exe/TestAgentConfig.exe under D:\Program Files (or x86 on 64-bit machine) \Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE. Type /? for helps.

    Are the command line switches for the silent install documented anywhere?  I'm looking to silently install the test agent w/out installing the performance tools.  Specifying /full installs both the agent and perf.
