- Save the response file and run the following command as shown:
: ./config.sh -silent -options path/change-admin-pass.rsp
: config.bat -silent -options path\\change-admin-pass.rsp
where path is the fully-qualified path where the response file is located.
Wait for the command to finish successfully. If an error is displayed, review the expeditor_install_dir/logs/config.log file.
