Using silent mode to install the Application Server (Windows)

You can perform an unattended (silent) installation of the Application Server on a Windows system on which no previous version of this component is installed.

If a previous version is already installed, see Using silent mode to upgrade the Application Server (Windows).

The Application Server installation does not install the BMC Server Automation Console. To view the console, you must install it. For information, see Using silent mode to install the BMC Server Automation Console (Windows).

This topic includes the following sections:

Before you begin

To install the Application Server in silent mode

  1. Copy the Application Server installation program (BBSAversion-platform.exe) to the Windows system where you plan to create the response file.
  2. To create the response file, perform the following steps:
    1. Enter the following command:
      <version>-<platform>.exe> -a -r -f1<WINDIR>\Temp\<silentInstallFilePath.iss>
      The variable <silentInstallFilePath.iss>is the name of response file that you are creating.


      Include the version in the name of the file. (For example: 8.6.0-install.iss.)

    2. Use the program to perform an initial installation of the Application Server. Select your options. The options are recorded in the .iss file.
  3. When you complete the installation, open the .iss file in a text editor and note the identifier for Dlg0. You need this number to run the silent installation. For example: Dlg0={2C20E5A3-D863-458F-B231-6823B8E7C47C}
  4. To run the silent installation, at the command line, enter the following command:
    <version>-<platform>.exe> /s /ig<GUID> /f1<WINDIR>\Temp\<silentInstallFilePath.iss>
    • <version>-<platform>.exe> is the name of the Application Server installer.
    • <GUID> is the identification number for the GUID from the .iss file.
    • <silentInstallFilePath.iss> is the name of the response file that you created.
      For example:
      D:\BladeLogic\Bbsa87-WIN32.exe /s /ig{2C20E5A3-D863-458F-B231-6823B8E7C47C} /f1C:\8_6AppServer.iss


  • Ensure that no space exists between the /f1 option and the .iss file name or path.
  • During this silent installation, no database configuration options are set. You must configure the database as a separate operation after installation.
