Below VIX workflow example on executing BAT file via VMware tools in UCSD.

Noticed in this workflow that there was no command to mount an MS SQL iso.  Is it assumed that the iso/executable is already on the target server?

Enthusiast

Pretty old version of SQL, also.  Versions 2012 and 2014 have since been released, and 2016 is just around the corner.

I'm curious why not use UCSD PowerShell Agent instead ssh or vix?  Seems like that is what the agent is designed to do.

If you have a new version of silent install to share I can post it. VIX is an interesting alternative to SSH or Powershell since the VM after install does not have to be reachable by UCSD to drive change to the VM.

I don't have a new unattended installation of SQL.  Microsoft has come up with a newer technology called Desired State Configuration.  This allows a SQL installation definition to be defined once and then machine can be configured to either pull the configuration or have the configuration pushed to them.  They can even be configured to automatically re-configure themselves if their configuration is altered from the accepted configuration.  Microsoft has not yet released their SQL configuration routines yet, though they are working on this for all their products.  But the open source community has already done it and made it available.  chef-cookbooks/sql_server · GitHub

And, it shouldn't take much to convert your current installation to 2012/14/16.  You are just performing a default, local node installation, and though the answer file changes slightly, it would not take much to update for later versions.

I am unsure if I follow clearly, so it looks like the silent install of MSSQL 2k12 or 2k14 should be done through Windows PowerShell or combination of that and VMware PowerCLI VIX scripting?

And in regards to automating MS SQL with chef, how would you integrate that into UCSD from a workflow execution perspective?

Cisco Employee

We do have puppet integration on the community site.

https://communities.cisco.com/docs/DOC-58262

The chef integration would probably look not all that different.

The DSC resource for SQL Server can be found here - https://github.com/PowerShell/xSQLServer

Orf, Chef is actually working with the Microsoft community to work hand-in-hand with DSC - https://www.chef.io/blog/2014/07/24/getting-ready-for-chef-powershell-dsc/
