How to Deploy the MBAM Client by Using a Command Line

You can use a command line to deploy the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) Client software.

Command Line to deploy the MBAM Client software

Type the following command at the command prompt to automatically accept the end user license agreement when deploying the MBAM Client software.

MBAMClientSetup.exe /acceptEula=Yes

The /ju and /jm command-line options are not supported and cannot be used to install the MBAM Client software.

Type the following command at the command prompt to extract and install the MSP:

MBAMClientSetup.exe /extract <path to extract MSI> /acceptEula=Yes

Then, install the MSI silently by running the following command:

msiexec /i <path to extracted MSI> /qb ALLUSERS=1 REBOOT=ReallySuppress

Beginning in MBAM 2.5 SP1, a separate MSI is no longer included with the MBAM product. However, you can extract the MSI from the executable file (.exe) that is included with the product, after accepting the EULA.

OPTIN_FOR_MICROSOFT_UPDATES=1 command-line option

You can optionally specify the command-line option OPTIN_FOR_MICROSOFT_UPDATES=1 during the Client software installation to automatically install Microsoft Updates on client computers. Specifying this option makes Microsoft Update automatically start and search for available updates to install after the Client software installation finishes.

You can use this command-line option with either of the following installation methods.

Install the MBAM Client software by using Example



msiexec /i MBAMClient.msi
