Quest On Demand Migration agent install using Powershell

#Windows #Powershell

Here's a script that I'm using to roll out the Quest ODM agent on PCs in my environment that do not have access to the LAN. I used Atera Service Desk to deploy it for internet-only installation.

Agent install and hosting

This script requires that you download the Device Agent from the Quest Migration for Active Directory downloads page:

Once that's complete, you will need to upload the file to a publicly accessible file share. I used Azure Files to create a storage container and provide direct access to the file. This URI will be pointed to in the script, so you cannot use something like OneDrive or SharePoint without special configuration.


Before running this script, you will need to change the following XXX values:

Function Invoke-ODM_Agent_Install {

	$InstallCheck = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Quest\On Demand Migration For Active Directory\ODMAD_AD" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
  If ($null -eq $InstallCheck) {
    Write-Host 'Downloading ODM agent.' 
    $QuestODMMSIURI = 'XXX' # Change to use your own Azure Files URI
    $QuestODMdest = 'C:\Temp\ODM\QuestODM.msi' 
    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $QuestODMMSIURI -OutFile (New-Item -Path $QuestODMdest -Force)

    Write-Host 'Installing ODM agent.'
    cmd /c "msiexec.exe /I `"C:\Temp\ODM\QuestODM.msi`" /qn SERVICEURL= AUTHKEY=XXX" # Change to use your own authkey from Quest
    Write-Host 'Finished installing ODM agent.' 
  ElseIf ($null -ne $InstallCheck) {
    Write-Host 'ODM agent is already installed.'
  Else {
    Write-Host 'ERROR!'
