  • Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0


You run the Setup program to silently upgrade a computer that is running Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. To do this, you use the following command line:

setup.exe /config files\SetupUpgradeSilent\config.xml

However, during the upgrade process, the computer restarts. You do not receive a warning message that notifies you that the computer shuts down and then restarts during the upgrade process.


This behavior occurs because the Setup program forces a shutdown and a restart of the computer during the silent upgrade process. This behavior is by design.


To work around this behavior, add the following line to the Config.xml file:

<Setting Id="REBOOT" Value="ReallySuppress"/>

This line prevents the computer from restarting during the upgrade process.

Note The Config.xml file for a silent upgrade is located in the Files\SetupUpgradeSilent folder of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 installation source.
