Before you begin
Ensure that the wizard has created the response.properties
file in the user_settings/lcWizard/response/dbWizard
To create a response file, run the wizard in standard mode and specify that you would like to create a response file. You can modify the existing response file or create your own, using a text editor. For more information, see the Database wizard response file
® only) If you use only one database instance and if that instance includes other databases besides IBM
® Connections, configure the numdb parameter to match the total number of databases on the instance. For more information, go to the numdb
webpage in the DB2
(Oracle only) Ensure that the Statement cache size for the data sources on WebSphere Application Server is no larger than 50. A higher value could lead to Out Of Memory errors on the application server instance.
About this task
To create databases in silent mode, complete the following steps:
- (DB2 on Windows™ 2008 64-bit.) On Windows 2008, you must perform DB2 administration tasks with full administrator privileges.
- Logged in as the instance owner, open a command prompt and change to the DB2 bin directory. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN.
- Enter the following command: db2cwadmin.bat. This command opens the DB2 command line processor while also setting your DB2 privileges.
- From a command prompt, change to the directory where the wizard is located.
- Launch the wizard by running the following command:
- AIX®: ./dbWizard.sh -silent response_file
- Linux®: ./dbWizard.sh -silent response_file
- Microsoft® Windows: dbWizard.bat -silent response_file
where response_file is the file path to the response file.
Note: If the path to the response_file contains a space, this parameter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (").
What to do next
After the wizard has finished, check the log file in the Lotus_Connections_set-up_directory/Wizards/DBWizard
directory for messages. The log file name uses the time as a postfix. For example: dbConfig_20110308_202501.log.
