This is Part 2 of the 100% Scripted MOSS Installation. In Part 1 of the series, MOSS was installed on SQL SERVER 2005 Express edition. In this series, we will install SQL SERVER 2005 Enterprise Edition using a script, followed with a recap of installation of MOSS and then configuring MOSS using scripts. This will be a shorter journey, since we have seen various permutations in the earlier series.

I have used the instructions from MSDN to configure and install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition.

start /wait C:\BUILD\Packages\MOSS\SQL2005\Servers\setup.exe /qb ADDLOCAL=Client_Components,Connectivity,SQL_Documentation,SQL_Tools90

start /wait C:\BUILD\Packages\MOSS\SQL2005\Servers\setup.exe /qb INSTANCENAME=MOSS2007 ADDLOCAL=SQL_Engine SAPWD=password SQLACCOUNT=domain\sqlserviceaccount SQLPASSWORD=password AGTACCOUNT=domain\sqlserviceaccount AGTPASSWORD=password SQLBROWSERACCOUNT=domain\sqlserviceaccount SQLBROWSERPASSWORD=password SECURITYMODE=SQL

As in earlier series, application installation packages are in

C:\Build\Packages\MOSS\ and copy your SQL SERVER 2005 CD to


Then apply Service Packs

start /wait C:\BUILD\Packages\MOSS\SQLSERVER2005SP1-KB913090-x86-ENU.exe /allinstances /quiet

start /wait C:\BUILD\Packages\MOSS\SQLSERVER2005SP2-KB921896-x86-ENU.exe /allinstances /quiet

/allinstances /quiet applies service pack to all instances quietly

You can download the scripts from my sky drive

For further customized options you can refer to MSDN Article here.
