There is no options file for upgrade.  The options file is used for new installations only. This is possible because you cannot change any of the parameters during upgrade.  You cannot install the upgrade server into a different directory, nor can you change service names, or ports, etc.. For an upgrade all of the parameters are retrieved from your current (6.1.4) installation.

I am not aware of anyone using the silent install option for a server upgrade, therefore I cannot comment on whether or not that option is even supported for upgrade.

Have you tried this on a test system?

Please log an incident with Support and work with them to determine what options may exist for your exact configuration.

You should not need a graphical interface for a DA server upgrade.
There is no optionsfile because there is no user input.
All options are retrieved from the "old" system -- the DA system that is installed now, and it is not permissible to change any option as part of an upgrade.

Your choice is simple -- upgrade, keeping the same configuration options, or remove the old installation and install something new with user input or with an optionsfile.

Does this make sense?  If you are going to remove and reinstall, I can suggest a knowledgebase article or two to help you keep your old data with the new installation, let me know.
