Using a State File for a Web Agent Silent Installation on Solaris and Linux Systems

This section describes how to use a state file for installing a web agent on Solaris systems and Linux systems.

ProcedureTo Install a Web Agent Using a State File on Solaris and Linux Systems

To perform a silent installation of a web agent using a state file, perform the following:

  1. Change to the directory in which you unpacked the agent binaries.

    At this point, this directory should contain, amongst other items, the setup program and the web agent installation state file.

  2. Issue the following command:

    # ./setup -nodisplay -noconsole -state filename

    An option that directs the installer to run in non-interactive mode as it obtains all responses to prompts from the named state file.


    Represents the name of the state file from which the installer obtains all responses.

    The installation takes place hidden from view. After completion, the program exits automatically and displays the prompt.

    Note –

    Even though the silent installation does not validate the keys in the state file, avoid editing the values of the keys in the state file because the setupSDK script might report a corrupt state file when used during subsequent silent installations.
