How to silently install SQL Server 2016 Standard

If you need to quickly install SQL Server with many of the default, the following command can be used. This is useful if you are like me and often have to build up lab environments to test stuff.

.\setup.exe /Q /IACCEPTSQLSERVERLICENSETERMS /ACTION=install /FEATURES=SQL /INSTANCENAME=LAB /SQLSVCACCOUNT="LAB\SQLService" /SQLSVCPASSWORD="AppleP13"   /AGTSVCSTARTUPTYPE=Automatic /AGTSVCACCOUNT="NT AUTHORITY\Network Service" /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="LAB\Domain Administrators"


Instance Name = LAB
Domain = LAB.local
SQL Server = LAB\SQLService
