The installation configuration file is created when you use the savestate option when starting an interactive installation. During the interactive installation, your input is collected and stored in the configuration file you specified. This file forms the template for silent installation, which you can use later to install the product on one or more machines. If needed, you can modify the installation configuration file.
On Solaris and Linux, for the graphical interface the syntax is:
./distribution_filename -savestate configuration_filename
On Solaris and Linux, for the command-line interface, the syntax is:
./distribution_filename -console -savestate configuration_filename
To create the installation configuration file on the Windows platform, start the installation program from the command line. Change to the directory where the executable file resides. For the graphical method the syntax is:
distribution_filename -savestate configuration_filename
On Windows, for the command-line method, the syntax is:
distribution_filename -console -savestate configuration_filename.
If you do not include a path to the installation configuration file, the file is created in the directory where you are running the installation program.
The following example shows an installation configuration file created by running the installation program with the savestate option.
