Silent mode is a non-interactive installation method. Silent mode can be executed in one of two ways:
A silent installation can be directed by supplying a response file. The response file contains parameters and properties that define the installation choices for the Installer.
A response file can first be created by running a GUI or console mode installation using the -r option as shown in the following example:
# ./install.bin -i GUI -r /path_to_file/response.txt
Once the response file is created, you can use the file to do an identical silent installation, using the following command:
# ./install.bin -i silent -f /path_to_file/response.txt
If no response is supplied, a typical installation is performed with no post-installation configuration steps.
