A Creating a Silent Installation

The following sections describe how to create a silent installation of Oracle WebLogic Communication Services. Topics include:

A.1 Base Platform

Silent install of the Oracle WebLogic Communication Services Base Platform is achieved using the owlcs10310_generic.jar. The install can be triggered using the following command:

<JAVA_HOME>/bin/java  -Djava.io.tmpdir=/tmpDir  -jar owlcs10310_generic.jar -mode=silent -silent_xml=silent.xml -log=install.log -log_priority=debug


tmpDir is the temporary directory where the files are stored

silent.xml defines the required input details for the base platform installation

install.log is the location of the log file which contains the complete output log of the installation

log_priority=debug denotes the level of logging

The only mandatory value in the silent.xml file for the install is the BEAHOME. BEAHOME is the target directory where the Base platform is to be installed:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
   <data-value name="BEAHOME" value="/scratch/user1_silentinstall/run7/mwhome" />
   <data-value name="WLSS_INSTALL_DIR" value="/scratch/user1_silentinstall/run7/test1/wlcservices_10.3" />
   <data-value name="WLS_INSTALL_DIR" value="/scratch/user1_silentinstall/run7/test2/wlserver_10.3" />
   <data-value name="COMPONENT_PATHS" value="WebLogic Server|WebLogic Communication Services" /> 
BEAHOME= MW Home (Mandatory)
WLSS_INSTALL_DIR= Directory for wlcservices_10.3 (Default to $MW_HOME/wlcservices_10.3)
WLS_INSTALL_DIR= Directory for wlserver_10.3 (Default to $MW_HOMEwlserver_10.3)
COMPONENT_PATHS= "WebLogic Server|WebLogic Communication Services" (Defaults to both the products)

There are additional values which can be provided to configure:




As they are not mandatory, the automatic default values would be taken for installation.

A.2 Services

Silent install of the Oracle WebLogic Communication Services (Presence and SIP Infrastructure Components) is similar to other SOA Components. The install can be triggered using the following command:

./runInstaller -jreLoc <JRE_LOC> -printtime -printmemory -printdiskusage -invPtrLoc oraInst.loc -novalidation -ignoreSysPrereqs -force -silent -response silent.rsp -waitforcompletion


JRE_LOC is the JDK6 location

invPtrLoc is the location to the oraInventory

silent.rsp is the response file for the silent install mode. The silent.rsp is of the following format:


MIDDLEWARE_HOME is the bea home as provided in the base platform install.

ORACLE_HOME is the target directory for the install.

Configuration using Silent install mode is achieved through WLST commands to read and apply templates.
