Hi,

I'm studying to retake the SQL Admin exam (70-228) and wanted to familiarise myself with the command line options for installing SQL Server 2000.  The exam mentioned the use of a -m flag with setupsql.exe, but I can't seem to find out what this does.  

The BOL only refer to the -s -f1 and start/wait options.  I even tried running the setupsql command with invalid parameters to get prompt of valid options but it also just refered to those flags.

Any ideas?

are you sure you aren't thinking about starting SQL Server with the -M option to put it into single user mode?

Honestly I don't know as the only feedback you get on this particular exam is Pass / Fail.  From my own conservative calculations I got at least 35/45 questions right which is 77%.  As the pass mark isn't published don't know how close it was, although most sample tests place it at 85%.
