    Unanswered: Unattended INstallation OF SQL SERVER

    Hi guys i am trying to install 2005 SQL server(enterprise) on 80-100 servers, mostly with default instances and some with named instances( may be 30 of htem) on 2003 Windpws enterprise platform. i wanted to unattended installation and also if all the configurations are the same, can i install on all servers at time.

    Some pros and cons are appreciated and also if you got better scripts please do share it,
    Thanks

    100 servers?

    That's a lot of CAL

    I know of no automated way to do this

    Or are you talking about copying databases?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    Looks like you just had to edit the sqlins.iss file in SQL Server 2000, but for 2005 you have to do some XML hackimifying.
