The silent mode file (also known as a state file) is formatted like a property file: blank lines begin with a number sign (#) and properties are key/value pairs separated by an equals (=) sign. You can change the following parameters:
VERB— indicate which function to perform. For example VERB=install
You can add CLI arguments described in commpkg usage, however the —dry-run argument cannot be added to the install function in the state file.
ALTDISTROPATH— indicate an alternate distro path if —distro is not specified. For example, ALTDISTROPATH=SunOS5.10_i86pc_DBG.OBJ/release
PKGOVERWRITE— set this flag if you want to overwrite the existing installation packages. For example, PKGOVERWRITE=YES
INSTALLROOT— specify installation root. For example, INSTALLROOT=/opt/sun/comms
ALTROOT— set this flag if you want to use an alternate root. For example, ALTROOT=yes
EXCLUDEOS— set this flag if you don't want to upgrade Operating System patches. For example, EXCLUDEOS=YES
COMPONENTS— list the components you want to install. For example:
COMPONENTS=MS64 for 64–bit Messaging Server.
COMPONENTS=MS64_L10N for localized 64–bit Messaging Server.
COMPONENTS=MS for 32–bit Messaging Server.
COMPONENTS=MS_L10N for localized 32–bit Messaging Server.
ACCEPTLICENSE- indicate whether or not to accept license. For example, ACCEPTLICENSE=yes.
This property must be specified either in the state file or as a command line argument.
UPGRADESC– indicate whether all shared components should or should not be upgraded without prompting. For example, UPGRADESC=no
