Installing on UNIX Platforms in Silent Mode

Preparing for Silent Mode Installation

Before you install Tuxedo ART for IMS, complete the following tasks:

Creating a Silent Mode Installation Template File

To create a template file for use in the silent installation process, you must use keywords as shown in Table 1.

Table 1 Silent Mode Installation Template File
For This Keyword…
Enter The Following Value…
INSTALLER_UI=
The mode of installation. The only supported value is silent; do not modify this value.
ORACLEHOME=
The full pathname of the Oracle Home directory of your choice.
USER_INSTALL_DIR
The full pathname of the installation directory.
INSTALL_SAMPLES=Y|N
Specifies whether sample applications are installed or not.
OVERWRITE=Y|N
If you are using silent mode installation over an existing version of Tuxedo ART for IMS, you must add this line to your template file.
Any value other than "Y" or "y" will not overwrite the existing Tuxedo ART for IMS version and cancels the installation.

Sample UNIX Template

INSTALLER_UI=silent
ORACLEHOME=/home/user/oracle
USER_INSTALL_DIR=/home/user/oracle/artims12110
INSTALL_SAMPLES=Y
OVERWRITE=Y

Installing in Silent Mode

To use silent mode installation on a UNIX system, you must do the following steps:

  1. Create a file containing the required variables set to valid data.
  2. At the command line prompt, go to the directory containing the installer executable.
  3. Enter the following command: ./installer_name.bin -f path/installer.data
  4. Note: path is the full path to the variable data file and installer.data is the data file containing the required variables.

Verifying Silent Mode Installation

You can verify successful silent mode installation by checking the installation directory to see if all the Tuxedo ART for IMS binaries are listed.

If silent mode installation fails, check the following log file: $HOME/ARTIMS_silent_install.log.

Uninstall Silent Installation

Under <INSTALL_DIR> there is a directory named 'uninstaller', which contains the uninstaller and resources specific to the un-installation of the product. To uninstall Tuxedo ART for IMS in silent mode, use the ./uninstall -i silent command.
