Silent Install Clone Agent

This article explains how to download the SQL Clone Agent service silently over the network.

You can use the following PowerShell commands, configured as necessary to achieve this:

$username = "<username that can access SQL Clone Server>"
$plaintextPassword = "<password for that user>"
$agentInstaller = "<some path>\SQLCloneSingleUserInstaller.exe"
$password = ConvertTo-SecureString $plaintextPassword -AsPlainText -Force
$credentials = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ($username, $password)
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://<server machine>:14145/download/agentinstaller" -OutFile $agentInstaller -Credential $credentials

To check $process.ExitCode to see if it was successful run:

$process = Start-Process -FilePath "$AgentInstaller" -ArgumentList ("-s", "SERVICEUSERNAME=$Username", "SERVICEPASSWORD=$Password") -Wait -PassThru
