After you run a regular installation and are familiar with the server, you can use a silent installation the next time you install the server.
In a silent installation, launch the installation and specify a text file that contains your installation parameters, so that you are not prompted for information. To install in silent mode, you must first create a file containing your installation parameters.
Create a file in a text editor with the following syntax and parameters for your machine.
-inst -license nnn-nnn-nnnn[-nn] -edahome drive:\ibi\srv81\home -edaconf drive:\ibi\srv81\wfs -port port -host hostname -approot drive:\ibi\apps -programfolder "WebFOCUS 81 Server" -pass password -nostart
Is the 10-digit or 12-digit license number.
Is the drive and directory where you want to install the server.
Is the base TCP port for the server.
Is the hostname of the server.
Is the Windows program folder and service name.
Is the password for the user ID you are using to install the server.
You can see additional installation options by executing the installation from a command prompt as follows:
setup -LlangID -opt drive:\PATH_TO\srvoptions.txt [-DINSTALL_LOG_DESTINATION="log_destination"] [-DINSTALL_LOG_NAMES="log_name"]
Is the full path to the file containing your installation options.
Is -L and the decimal language ID of the language in which you wish to install the server. For example:
Is the location where the installation log is created. If this argument is omitted, the log is created in the default location.
Is the name of the installation log. If this argument is omitted, the default name is used.
setup -L0x409 -opt C:\temp\srvoptions.txt
