3.5 Unattended Installation

3.5.1 Performing an Unattended Installation
3.5.2 MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Options
3.5.3 MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent Options

This section explains how to automate the install and upgrade procedures for the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager and MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent components, to perform those operations across one or multiple machines without any user interaction.

To perform an unattended installation, specify the installation mode as unattended by using the mode command line option. In this mode, you specify all the installation parameters, such as the installation directory, and user, password, and network options, through command-line options. For convenient scripting, you can save these options in a text file and run the installer using the optionfile option.

Before performing an unattended installation, familiarize yourself with the options by doing at least one interactive MySQL Enterprise Monitor install. Read the regular installation instructions, since some tasks still remain after an unattended installation: you must configure the MySQL Enterprise settings, and start up all the services/daemons.
