    A silent installation is also referred to as an unattended installation.

    To perform a silent installation of the Infrastructure Management server

    Before you install the Fix Pack silently, customize the server_fixpack_silent.options file as required. This file is available in the <OS>\TSIMServer\Disk1 directory.

    To customize the options file

    • Confirm restart of the Infrastructure Management server after installing the Fix Pack.
      -J FIXPACK_CONFIRM_SERVER_RESTART=true
      The default value is true
    • (Optional) If you have already migrated customized KB definitions to the new standard 10.7 KB, set the value of the MIGRATED_KB parameter to true and provide the path of the customized KB directory: 
    -J MIGRATED_KB=<true/false>
    -J MIGRATED_KB_HOME=<KB migration path>

    Parameter

    Description

    MIGRATED_KBSetting to enable KB migration. The default value is false.
    MIGRATED_KB_HOMEPath of the customized KB directory. For example, /opt/bmc/TSIMAgent/server/etc/cellname

    Microsoft Windows

    To install the Infrastructure Management server by using the server_fixpack_silent.options file, run the following command at the command prompt:

    install.cmd -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE=<fullyQualifiedPath>\server_fixpack_silent.options
    where fullyQualifiedPath indicates the complete path where you have saved the server_fixpack_silent.options file. If the fullyQualifiedPath parameter contains a space in it, enclose the path within double quotes.

    Example

    install.cmd -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="C:\Temp\server_fixpack_silent.options"

    Installation-related information is not displayed on the console when the silent installation begins. However, installation occurs in the background. The progress of the installation is logged in a temporary folder during the installation. Go to Start > Run, enter %temp% in the Open box, and see the tsim_fixpack_log.txt file for the installation progress details and for the database-related progress details.

    Linux

    To install the Infrastructure Management Server by using the server_fixpack_silent.options file, run the following command at the command prompt:

    ./install.sh -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE=<fullyQualifiedPath>/server_fixpack_silent.options 

    where fullyQualifiedPath indicates the complete path where you have saved the server_fixpack_silent.options file. If the fullyQualifiedPath parameter contains a space in it, enclose the path within double quotes.

    Example

    ./install.sh -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="/tmp/server_fixpack_silent.options"

    Installation-related information is not displayed when the silent installation begins. However, installation occurs in the background. Open /tmp or /var/tmp, and see the tsim_fixpack_log.txt file for the installation progress details and for the database-related progress details.

    To perform a silent installation of the Integration Service

    This Fix Pack contains a full installation of the Integration Service. You can either perform a fresh installation of the Integration Service or apply the Fix Pack on an existing Integration Service.

    Fresh installation

      Parameters to run

      When both Integration Service and cell are installed in the same folder

      -J OLD_CELL_INSTALL_LOCATION=C:\Program Files\BMC Software\TSIMAgent

      -J OLD_INSTALL_LOCATION=C:\Program Files\BMC Software\TSIMAgent

      -J IS_CELL_UPGRADE=true

      -J IS_I_S_UPGRADE=true

      Note: You cannot upgrade only the Integration Service or cell if they are both installed in the same folder. You must upgrade both at the same time. The installer displays an error message to upgrade both Integration Service and cell.

      When the Integration Service and cell are installed in different folders

      Upgrade any one component at a time.

      Important

      If you are upgrading the remote Integration Service and remote cell as a non-root user on Linux, first upgrade only the remote cell and then upgrade the remote Integration Service.

      After upgrading the remote Integration Service, check if the /server folder exists under the remote Integration Service base installation folder. Delete the folder if it exists.

        1. Hi Dheeraj, 

          The existing documentation implies that you should overwrite the existing cell kb directory with the migrated kb directory before you run the install.

          Since the install is ran on the primary(or standalone) TSIM with it running this is not a good idea.


          I think it would be clearer if we changed the documentation for the MIGRATED_KB_HOME parameter from..

          To customize the options file

          • Confirm restart of the Infrastructure Management server after installing the Fix Pack. 
            -J FIXPACK_CONFIRM_SERVER_RESTART=true
            The default value is true
          • (Optional) If you have already migrated customized KB definitions to the new standard 10.7 KB, set the value of the MIGRATED_KB parameter to true and provide the path of the customized KB directory: 

          -J MIGRATED_KB=<true/false>
          -J MIGRATED_KB_HOME=<KB migration path>

          Parameter

          Description

          MIGRATED_KBSetting to enable KB migration. The default value is false.
          MIGRATED_KB_HOMEPath of the customized KB directory. For example, /opt/bmc/TSIMAgent/server/etc/cellname


          ..to  




          MIGRATED_KB_HOME

          Path of the customized KB directory. For example, /tmp/migratedKB/cellname

          **Please node that the install is expecting the migrated KB directory to have the same name as the cell.


          (or something equivalent).

          Thanks,

          Leo
