Install ESM Components

Use the following workflow to install ESM components (ESM Server and ESM Console) using Msiexec.
  1. Open a command prompt as an administrator:
    • Select
      All Programs
      . Right-click
      Command prompt
      , and then
      Run as administrator
    • Select
      . In the
      Start Search
      box, type
      . Then, to open the command prompt as an administrator, press
  2. Run the
    command followed by one or more of the following options or properties:
    Although Msiexec supports additional options, ESM installers support only the options listed here.
    • Install, display, and logging options:
      • /i <installpath>\<installerfilename>.msi
        —Install a package. For example,
        msiexec /i c:\install\traps.msi
      • /l*v <logpath>\<logfilename>.txt
        —Log verbose output to a file. For example,
        /l*v c:\logs\install.txt
      • /qn
        —Displays no user interface (quiet installation). At minimum, you must also specify the host server name or IP address using the
    • Public properties:
      • CYVERA_SERVER=<servername>
        —Primary host server name or IP address (default is ESMserver)
      • CYVERA_SERVER_PORT=<serverport>
        —Primary host server port (default is 2125)
      • USE_SSL_PRIMARY=[0|1]
        Quiet installation only
        ) Set encryption preferences on the primary server by specifying
        to not use SSL (
        not recommended
        ) or
        to use SSL (default)
        —If you are installing the ESM component for the first time, this option changes the installation folder from the default to the specified folder. If you later upgrade the ESM component using Msiexec, you must use this option to specify the location in which the installer should look for the install directory. For example,
        CYVERAESCFOLDER="D:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\Endpoint Security Manager\"
    For example, to install Traps without a user interface, specify a server named TrapsServer that does not use SSL encryption on a port other than the default (for example on port 5212, a non-standard port), and create an installation log in
    , enter the following:
    msiexec /i c:\install\traps.msi /l*v C:\temp\trapsinstall.log /qn CYVERA_SERVER=TrapsServer CYVERA_SERVER_PORT=5212 USE_SSL_PRIMARY=0
    We recommend that you restart the device after completing the installation.
