SQL Server Deployment SCCM

Hello everyone, I would like to deploy SQL Server. Which version doesn't matter because I have to do it for several. My question now is, with other programs with so many setting options, there is usually a way to create an administrative image. How does it work with SQL Server? Does anyone have a tutorial for me or instructions on how to do it? Does it run through an .xml? I find very little about this on the Internet.
I would like to deploy the whole thing via SCCM.
Many Thanks

    Hi @Dominic Kribbenhold ,

    Sorry for misunderstanding what you mean.
    PLease refer to these articles:
    https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2511/standardize-sql-server-installations-with-configuration-files/

    ------------
    in this case, the version is too old. But it is very detailed.
    https://www.softlanding.ca/blog/using-a-configuration-file-to-make-sql-server-installation-easier-and-consistent/

    ------------
    in this case, the version is 2019.

    Finally, this is an example of official documentation.

    ; Microsoft SQL Server Configuration file    
    [OPTIONS]    
    ; Specifies a Setup work flow, like INSTALL, UNINSTALL, or UPGRADE.    
    ; This is a required parameter.    
    ACTION="Install"    
    ; Specifies features to install, uninstall, or upgrade.    
    ; The list of top-level features include SQL, AS, RS, IS, and Tools.    
    ; The SQL feature will install the database engine, replication, and full-text.    
    ; The Tools feature will install Management Tools, Books online,     
    ; SQL Server Data Tools, and other shared components.    
    FEATURES=SQL,Tools  
    

    Best regards,
    Seeya
