    This page provides information about performing a silent installation of the administration console and contains the following topics and references:

    Installing the administration console on Microsoft Windows silently 

    Perform the following steps to install the administration console and the Infrastructure Management Remote cell:

    1. Navigate to the Admin.zip file available in the \TSIMAdmin\Windows directory and extract its contents. 

    2. Customize the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file as required, which is available in the extracted zipped folder.
    3. Open the command prompt with the Run as administrator option. Navigate to the install.cmd file, which is available in the extracted zipped folder.
    4. Run the following command to install an Administration Console on the local computer by using the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file:

      install.cmd -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="<fullyQualifiedPath>\bmc_tsim_admin_install.options"

      where fullyQualifiedPath indicates the complete path where you have saved the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file. If the fullyQualifiedPath parameter contains a space in it, the path must be enclosed within double quotes.

       

      Example

      install.cmd -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="C:\Program Files\Agent Installation\bmc_tsim_admin_install.options"

    Note

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

    Installing the administration console on Linux silently 

    Perform the following steps to install administration console on Linux operating systems:

    1. Navigate to the Admin.zip file available in the /TSIMAdmin/Linux directory and extract its contents.
    2. Customize the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file as required, which is available in the extracted zipped folder.
    3. Open the command prompt with the Run as administrator option. Navigate to the install.sh file, which is available in the extracted zipped folder.
    4. Run the following command to install an Administration Console on the local computer by using the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file:

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

      where fullyQualifiedPath indicates the complete path where you have saved the bmc_tsim_admin_install.options file. If the fullyQualifiedPath parameter contains a space in it, the path must be enclosed within double quotes.

    Example

    ./install.sh -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="/temp directory/bmc_tsim_admin_install.options"

    Note

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