|Oracle® Fusion Middleware Installation and Upgrade Guide for Oracle WebCenter Collaboration
10g Release 4 (10.3.3.0.0)
Part Number E13695-06
When you install Oracle WebCenter Collaboration, the installer creates the file ptcollab_silent.properties in the directory where Oracle WebCenter Collaboration is installed. Once you have created a silent properties file on one computer, you can reuse it when you install Oracle WebCenter Collaboration on other computers so that you do not have to re-enter deployment information every time you use the installer. During a “silent” install, the information required by the installation dialogs is read from the properties file.
A silent install may be run from the command line as follows:
<full_Path_To_Installer>/WebCenterCollaboration_<version> –f <full_Path_To_Properties_File>/ptcollab_silent.properties
<full_Path_To_Installer>/WebCenterCollaboration_10.3.3.0.0 - f <full_Path_To_Properties_File>/ptcollab_silent.properties
A silent install can be useful for distribution of the product across a uniform set of machines.
