puppet agent silent install fails (windows 8/2012)
I am trying to automate the deployment of puppet agent on Windows systems using msiexec (silent installation). The deployment works well on systems running Windows 7, however its failing on windows 8/2012. note: UAC is disabled on all the systems.
When I try to install the puppet agent through command line (msiexec /qn /i C:\test\pe.msi PUPPETMASTERSERVER=puppet.domain.com ) on Windows 8 or 2012 the installation fails, even though I am logged into the system as a member of the local administrators group. However, if i try the same logged using the built-in local administrator account, puppet agent is installed with no issues.
I don't like the idea of having to use the administrator built-in account (account disabled by default on my environment) to roll out puppet...
Is this as expected? is there any workaround?
Any help would be much appreciated.
