Running the Installation from the Command Line

After you have modified the appropriate siebel.ini files in the previous procedure, run the unattended installation from the command line. However, before running an unattended installation, be aware of the following guidelines:

  • You must have a Siebel image created to use for installation. For more details on creating a Siebel image, see Creating the Siebel Installation Image on the Network.
  • Any data entry error that you make during installation is captured in the installation log file log.txt, located in the $SIEBEL_ROOT directory. Consider using the -log logfile option to create an additional setup initialization log file.
  • You can also perform unattended configuration.

NOTE:  These instructions are for installing the Siebel Enterprise Server using unattended mode. Installation in unattended mode of other server products is similar.

To install in unattended mode

  • Navigate to the UNIX_OS/Server/Siebel_Enterprise_Server directory and enter:

    ./setupUNIX_OS -args SS_SETUP_INI=main_installer_siebel.ini_path


    • UNIX_OS (for the directory path) = Your UNIX operating system, such as AIX, Solaris, or HPUX (for HP-UX).
    • UNIX_OS (for the command) = Your UNIX operating system, such as aix, solaris, or hp.
    • main_installer_siebel.ini_path = The full path, including the filename, to the main installer siebel.ini file.

      For example, on Solaris:

    ./setupsol -args SS_SETUP_INI=/export/home/Siebel_Install_Image/
