Kaspersky Security Center allows you to install iOS MDM Server on a local device in silent mode, that is, without the interactive input of installation settings.

To install iOS MDM Server on a local device in silent mode:

  1. Read the End User License Agreement. Use the command below only if you understand and accept the terms of the End User License Agreement.
  2. Run the following command:

    .\exec\setup.exe /s /v"DONT_USE_ANSWER_FILE=1 EULA=1 <setup_parameters>"

    where setup_parameters is a list of settings and their respective values, separated with spaces (PROP1=PROP1VAL PROP2=PROP2VAL). The setup.exe file is located in the Server folder, which is part of the Kaspersky Security Center distribution kit.

The names and possible values for parameters that can be used when installing iOS MDM Server in silent mode are listed in the table below. Parameters can be specified in any convenient order.
