    SQBServerSetup /verysilent /sqbminimal /i <instance name> /svcuser <user name> /svcpw <password> /sqluser <user name> /sqlpw <password> /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES

    svcuser = startup user account for service app.
    sqluser = SQL authentication user for service app

    This will install the server components into the Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Backup\<instance name> folder.

    If you run SQBServerSetup without the /sqbminimal switch, the server components will be installed into a subfolder under the current folder where SQBServerSetup resides.

    There isn't a switch to explicitly name the installation folder.

    E.g. sqbserversetup /verysilent /sqbminimal /suppressmsgboxes /svcuser .\LocalSystem
    and windows authentification for sql?
    Omit the sqluser and sqlpw switches.

    Hi,

    If there is only one instance of SQL server running, will I need to still provide the instance name? Can I omit the switch and will it still install successfully?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you need to provide the instance name if you are installing to a named instance. If it is the default instance, you can omit the /i parameter and value.
