You can set up the Network Client Installer installation program to run silently if you do not want to interact with the installation wizard.
To do you this, you should install using the installation wizard, answering all the questions as how you would like the silent install to run. After the installation is complete, copy the installNCI.rsp
file from the <destination>/package
directory, where <destination>
is the directory in which you chose to install the Network Client Installer.
Installer executables are located in the nci/install/
directory of the CD.
Choose from two ways to install silently:
- On a Windows® system, run the setupwin32.exe file.
- On a Linux® system, run the setuplinux.sh file.
- On an AIX® system, run the setupaix file.
- On a Linux system for System p®, run the setupLinuxPPC.sh file.
- Run the following command:
<setup executable> -silent -options installNCI.rsp -V NCI_PORTAL_PASSWORD=<portal password>
For example, on AIX
setupaix -silent -options installNCI.rsp -V NCI_PORTAL_PASSWORD=myPortalPassword
Note: Because this is a silent install, no command line or graphical output is created. To view the progress of the install or to see any error messages generated, view the install log file, which is located in the temp folder defined by your operating system. In this temporary directory, the file NCI/logs/masterInstallLog.txt will contain the output from the installation.
