Creating a Platform-Appropriate State File ID

A state file can only be run on a host of the same platform type as the host where the state file was generated unless you edit the state file ID. Each platform has a different type of state file ID.

ProcedureTo Generate a State File ID Using the Installer

This procedure generates a state file ID by running the installer on the platform on which you want to perform silent installation.

Note –

The following command works only if you are generating an ID for the same platform on which you are running the command.

  1. If you are not logged in as root, become superuser.

  2. Navigate to the directory where the installer is located:

    cd installer-directory
  3. Run the installer command using the -id option.

    ./installer -id

    The command generates an encrypted identifier.

  4. Copy the identifier and paste the value into the state file as the value for the STATE_BEGIN and STATE_DONE parameters.

    The following is an example of the state file identifier within a state file:

    [STATE_BEGIN Sun Java(tm) Enterprise System \
    [STATE_DONE Sun Java(tm) Enterprise System \
