Installing SQL Server Using SMS
You can use Microsoft® Systems Management Server (SMS) version 1.2 or later to install Microsoft SQL Server™ 2000 automatically on multiple server computers running Microsoft Windows NT® or Microsoft Windows® 2000 in your enterprise.
The SQL Server compact disc contains a Package Definition Format (PDF) file (Smssql.pdf) that automates creating a SQL Server package in SMS. The SQL Server package can then be distributed and installed on SMS computers.
Smssql.pdf includes instructions for running the batch file Smssqins.bat with Sqlins.iss (the setup initialization file) for a typical installation. Both of these files are included on the SQL Server compact disc.
To create a custom command file, edit a copy of Smssql.pdf.
