A.1.1 Options

The syntax for the Oracle VM Manager installer script is:

runInstaller.sh [-h | --help] [-e | --extract_only] [{-d | --dir=}directory] 
             [{-c | --config=}configfile.yml] [{-u | --uuid=}uuid] 
             [{-i | --installtype=}{Simple | Custom | Uninstall}] [-y | --assumeyes]
             [-n | --noprereq] [-k | --cleanup]

A.1.1 Options

[-h | --help]

Displays the installer help.

[-e | --extract_only]

Extracts the installer and exits.

[{-d | --dir=}directory]

Runs the Oracle VM Manager installer scripts in the directory provided.

[{-c | --config=}configfile.yml]

Specifies an install configuration file. This file is used to set install options in a silent install.

# ./runInstaller.sh --config=/path/myconfig.yml \
    --installtype=Custom --assumeyes

The install configuration file should be in the format shown in Section A.2, “Installer Configuration File”.

[{-u | --uuid=}uuid]

Sets the UUID for Oracle VM Manager. Use this option when recovering an Oracle VM Manager instance to use the existing UUID. The Oracle VM Manager configuration file contains the UUID and is stored in the location:


# ./runInstaller.sh --uuid=0004FB000000100002CB7F2DFFA8D8
[{-i | --installtype=}{Simple | Custom | Uninstall}]

Sets the install type to use without being prompted during the install. Use this option during a silent install.

# ./runInstaller.sh --config=/path/myconfig.yml \
    --installtype=Custom --assumeyes
[-y | --assumeyes]

Sets each prompt during the install to respond as yes. If combined with the --installtype=Simple option, performs a silent install with the default settings, using a new locally installed MySQL database.

# ./runInstaller.sh --assumeyes --installtype=Simple
[-n | --noprereq]

Sets the installer to ignore all prerequisite system checks such as memory or operating system requirements.

# ./runInstaller.sh --noprereq
[-k | --cleanup]

Cleans up all temporary installation configuration files after the install completes.

# ./runInstaller.sh --cleanup
