Installer

About the Installer

The Axway Installer is an installation program for uniform and consistent installation of Axway products. The Installer is used to install, configure, update and uninstall Datastore, which is part of the Axway.

Installer modes

The Installer has the following installation modes.

  • GUI mode is supported on Windows, UNIX and Linux. However, to use on UNIX platforms, the Installer requires an X-Window environment. To use an X-Window distributed environment, you must export the DISPLAY environment variable: export DISPLAY=myhost.mydomain:0.0
  • Console mode displays a series of prompts requiring user responses or actions.
  • Silent mode enables you to perform an installation or configuration in a non-interactive mode. You do not have to enter any parameters in the GUI or console. See Silent mode installation.

Installer functions

The Installer command files are for invoking Installer functions in GUI or console mode.

Before installing, install is the only available function, invoked with the setup file in the root directory of the installation package.

After installing, the configure, update and uninstall functions are available. The scripts for those functions are in the root installation directory.
