Silent installation including


Is it possible to do a silent installation including of Enterprise Developer and COBOL Server products?


The $COBDIR/bin/ script does not have a silent or non-interactive option.  

It is only designed to run with user interaction.


To setup the product silently with the casperm settings you would need to install the product and pass in the command in arguments there.


   [ as root ] setup* -silent –IacceptEULA -EssysLog=Y -ESadminID=tmfavaev -CASrtDir=/var/microfocus/mfcobol/es


The other option is to create a script, example below, to run the script and pass in responses to the prompts.


Create script “”


#====== Start ==========

$COBDIR/bin/ <<EOT





#====== End ==========


[ as root ]
