StresStimulus supports unattended installation for automated deployment purposes.

Controller installation

To install a StresStimulus controller unattended, run the below PowerShell script on the target machine. 

Install StresStimulus Unattended
$DownloadPath = "${env:USERPROFILE}\Downloads\"

$ConfigScript = '<configuration>
     <startup>
          <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/>
          <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
     </startup>
</configuration>'

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://update.stimulustechnology.com/stresstimulus/StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -OutFile "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe"
New-Item -Path "${DownloadPath}" -Name "StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe.config" -ItemType "file" -Value "${ConfigScript}"
Start-Process -FilePath "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -ArgumentList '/q'

To upgrade a StresStimulus trial to an acquired license,  a controller license must be activated manually.

Load agent installation

To install a StresStimulus agent unattended, run the below PowerShell script on the target machine. 

Install StresStimulus Unattended
$DownloadPath = "${env:USERPROFILE}\Downloads\"

$ConfigScript = '<configuration>
     <startup>
          <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/>
          <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
     </startup>
</configuration>'

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://update.stimulustechnology.com/stresstimulus/StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -OutFile "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe"
New-Item -Path "${DownloadPath}" -Name "StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe.config" -ItemType "file" -Value "${ConfigScript}"
Start-Process -FilePath "${DownloadPath}StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe" -ArgumentList '/q /agent'


After installation, the Agent machines do not need to be activated with a license and are ready to use.

Controllers and agents can be deployed remotely.  To do so, execute the appropriate PowerShell script remotely following this Microsoft PowerShell Remoting guide .
