I am using a command line to install Forticlient EMS

FortiClientEndpointManagementServer_7.0.0.0042_x64.exe -burn.filehandle.attached=488 -burn.filehandle.self=492 SQLUser=***** SQLUserPassword=***** InstallSQL=0 ScriptDB=1 SQLServerInstance=MSSQLSERVER SQLService=MSSQL13$MSSQLSERVER "SQLCmdlineOptions=/INSTANCENAME=MSSQLSERVER /INSTANCEDIR=D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server" DBInitialSize=31MB DBInitialLogSize=4MB DBGrowth=11MB DBLogGrowth=11% DBLoginTimeout=31 DBQueryTimeout=61'



The installation log shows that the registry key is not found and is looking for Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Names\SQL', Value = 'FCEMS' <--- I don't know what is is this variable. I am not able to find in my server
