Use silent mode

Before you can install products using the Silent mode you need to prepare all the required product packages.

  1. Copy the silent files and the installation package that you used for the first installation to the new environment.
  2. Unzip the package in an empty folder.
  3. Go to the installation package directory.
  4. Run the Installer in Silent mode using the following commands:
    • UNIX:
      • setup.sh –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>
    • Windows:
      • setup32.exe –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>
      • setup64.exe –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>

After installation, the Installer's silent file is located in:

<install directory>/SilentFile/<DirectoryDate>/.

The file is called:

Install_Axway_Installer_V<version>.properties

In addition to the installer properties file, the silent file directory contains the product property files you might need to install. You should always call the Axway_Installer silent file from the command line no matter the number of products you want to install. You can add or delete products from the silent installation if necessary as long as they exist in the silent file. Open the Axway_Installer properties file and scroll to the end. You will see a number of IncludeFiles specifying the number of products included for an installation. You must not modify anything else in this file except the InstallDir, SynchronyLogicalName and list of IncludeFiles.

The following are related to the installation and important:

  • You must use the absolute path to the silent file and not the relative one.
  • The command must point to the Installer silent file and not the product silent file.
  • The product silent files installed in silent mode must be in the same directory as the Installer silent file.

Property files contained in an Axway_Installer properties file:

IncludeFiles =

IncludeFiles. AISAdministration = Install_AISAdministration_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. AISDesigner = Install_AISDesigner_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. AIServices = Install_AIServices_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. AISReport = Install_AISReport_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. AISRepository = Install_AISRepository_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. AISTools = Install_AISTools_V2.2.1.properties

IncludeFiles. Axway_Installer = Install_Axway_Installer_V4.7.0.properties

Install products silently in a directory with spaces

The Installer supports silent installation in a Windows directory with a name containing spaces (for example c:\Program Files) provided all products in the silent file allow spaces. If at least one of the products in the silent file does not allow spaces, the installation stops.

Configure product in silent mode

To configure an installation in silent mode, you need the following commands:

UNIX:

  • configure.sh –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>

Windows:

  • configure32.exe –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>
  • configure64.exe –s <the absolute path to the Installer silent file>
