How to Install MBAM with Configuration Manager

This section describes the steps to install MBAM with Configuration Manager by using the recommended configuration, which is illustrated in Getting Started - Using MBAM with Configuration Manager. The steps are divided into the following tasks:

  • Install and configure MBAM on the Configuration Manager Server

  • Install the Recovery and Audit Databases on the Database Server

  • Install the Administration and Monitoring Server features on the Administration and Monitoring Server

Before you begin the installation, ensure that you have edited or created the necessary mof files. For instructions, see How to Create or Edit the mof Files.

Important
If you are using a non-default SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) instance, you must start the MBAM Setup by using the following command line to specify the SSRS named instance:

MbamSetup.exe CM_SSRS_INSTANCE_NAME=<NamedInstance>

To install MBAM on the Configuration Manager Server

  1. On the Configuration Manager Server, run MBAMSetup.exe to start the MBAM installation wizard.

    Note
    To obtain the setup log files, you have to use the Msiexec package and the /L <location> option to install Configuration Manager. Log files are created in the location that you specify.

    Additional setup log files are created in the %temp% folder on the computer of the user who is installing Configuration Manager.

  2. On the Welcome page, optionally select the Customer Experience Improvement Program, and then click Start.
