Files to use with UserApp's silent installation.


Hello everyone,
We've been performing a fresh install of the whole IDM 4.5 bundle in one
of our SLES 11.3 VM's, following the official guide-line published
here;

https://www.netiq.com/documentation/idm45/setup_guide/data/front.html

While already completed the manual installation successfully with some
work-arounds and technical speculation, we are now confused trying to
figure out what are the proper .properties files to use when it comes to
performing a silent installation of the Tomcat/Postgre base, and User
Application. Our problem is, basically, we just can't find the
..properties file that the official document speaks of (that is,
silent.properties), that is supposed to be in the installation
directory. Instead, there are 2 files named
"user_app.install.properties" and "user_app.configure.properties".
Installation speaks about the first of them, but says nothing about the
other one.

Reviewing the files, we find configuration parameters that could easily
be those described for the "silent.properties" file, but we just can't
assume that. We don't have time to test this in a fresh install either.


This is also true for Tomcat/Postgre installation.

If you have any clue on what's the right way to editing this files, I
would really appreciate it. Anything else, at your dispossal.

Thank you a lot!

Greets,

Rodrigo.

Greetings,
The two files are examples. The first (user_app.install.properties)
is if you want to only "install" the files on the server but not
configure them. The second (user_app.configure.properties) is what you
would use if you did an "install" the first time.

Thank you for answering, Steven. To say the truth, we couldn't
understand your answer, would you mind explaining a little more about
how these files work in an installation context? Our goal would be to
speed up installation by generating a pre-defined properties file and
run silent mode, minimizing as much user interaction as it could along
the whole process (installation + configuration).

Hoping to hearing from you soon!

Rodrigo.
