I needed a way to mass install SNMP to the servers in my environment.  The problem I was having was Microsoft Windows Server 2003 needing files from the CD.  We don’t copy the i386 directory from the CD for two reasons.  We store the files on the network and drive space is limit on a lot of servers.  The batch script will check if the server is 2003.  If it is 2003, it will point the install cd to a network path or a local path.  Next it builds the  unattended install file.  Once the file is written, the system will add the SNMP feature per the unattended file.  After SNMP is installed, the registry keys are set for the SNMP community strings.  Lastly the script removes the temporary files it created.

Use this script in combination to PSTools’ PSExec and you can mass install.  Create a list of systems you want to install this on and call it hosts.txt.  Each server needs to be on it’s own line and it is best to use the fully qualified name or IP Address.  Copy the hosts.txt and installsnmp.bat file in to your PSTools directory and run the following command:

PsExec.exe @hosts.txt -s -c installsnmp.bat

Download the Install SNMP Batch File, just rename to a .bat file.
