Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Installation Guide for UNIX

Generating the Initial State File

You create the initial state file by running the installer interactively using the parameters of the installer command that tell the installer to capture your answers. As you proceed through the pages of the installer, your answers are captured and a state file is generated. The installer determines the order of the product components to be installed, so you can specify the components in any order. When you complete the installation, the state file is available in the location that you specified.

You can use the -no option if you do not want software to be installed during this session.

Syntax examples:

Full syntax for the installer command can be found in Appendix B, Installation Commands.

Refer to Appendix C, Example State File to see an example of a generated state file.
