When the installer is run in dry run mode (installer –n), the Summary Screen shows some error messages and also displays an install status of “Incomplete”. This is incorrect and misleading; a dry run does not install anything on the system; it only creates the answer file that can be subsequently used to perform a silent install. (Bug 6594351)
The installer does not perform Sun Connection registration when run in silent mode with an answer file (installer -a filename -s). (Bug 6710268)
When running the installer in text mode, when entering a username or password for Sun Connect registration or creating an online account, you cannot correct a user name or password using the backspace key. (Bug 6673460)
Workaround: Use the Control-H keys instead of the backspace key, or use a different terminal emulator like dtterm or xterm.
The Upgrade screen on the installer does not always correctly report the existing installed version of Message Queue or of the installer engine. (Bug 6679765)
When using the installer in text mode and attempting Sun Connection registration with an invalid user and password names, the installer displays an “unable to register” dialog, throws a Null pointer exception, and exits. (Bug 6666365)
