Posibility to set operation mode during silent install

As of ACE 12 the operation mode is as per installation instead of Node.

Option to set the operation mode during silent install helps in automation of this setting as no mqsi command console has to be started.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. When doing silent installations on Windows, we provide flags for license acceptance and other installation options (such as optional feature choices like the WSRR nodes for example) so this request would be consistent with that approach and makes sense. The silent install command already needs to run under elevated privilege (as would the mqsimode command) so we also don't see any technical implementation issue in this regard. Thanks for the suggestion which we agree would bring further value to the product and help with usability of silent installation. The idea is updated to Future Consideration status.
