3 Console Mode Installation

This section describes how to install the product from a console, rather than from a GUI. It contains these sections:

3.1 Installing the Product in Console Mode

Before you begin the installation process, ensure you have downloaded the appropriate version of the product for your operating system (see Table 1-5).

  1. On your local drive, locate the installer for the version of the product you want to install.

    Note:

    If you install the product on Linux or Solaris, see Section 1.5.1, "Ensure the Installer is Executable" for important information.

  2. Open a command window or console on your computer.

  3. Change to the directory from which you want to install the product.

  4. At the command line, type:

    product_installer -mode=console

    The system responds:

    Extracting 0%....................................100%

    Once the extraction process is complete, the system will prompt you through the installation, replicating the procedures described in Chapter 2, "Graphical Mode Installation".

Note:

If you don't specify -mode=console at the command line, the installer will revert to graphical mode, as described in Chapter 2, "Graphical Mode Installation"

3.2 Uninstalling the Product in Console Mode

This section describes how to uninstall Windows, Linux, and Solaris versions of the product in console mode.

3.2.1 Uninstalling Windows Versions from the Command Line

To uninstall the product in console mode, run the following command from a console window:

product_uninstall_dir\uninstall.exe

You will receive a message asking for confirmation before the product is uninstalled.

3.2.2 Uninstalling Linux and Solaris Versions from the Command Line

To uninstall Linux and Solaris versions of the product in console mode, do the following:

  1. Ensure you are located outside the product installation directory.

  2. At the command line, type:

    rm -rf product_install_dir

    The product is removed from your computer.
