Use a silent server installation command to install a community server on AIX
™, Solaris, or Windows
™ without any intervention during the installation process. An options file provides the information for the installation process.
Before you begin
If your server uses multiple IP addresses or one or more network interface cards, verify that the host name you will specify during installation resolves to the correct IP address. If the host name does not resolve properly, you may encounter problems during Sametime installation.
About this task
Follow these steps to customize the default installation options file for your environment and then use it to run the silent installation command.
- Open the default options file, which is provided on the CD and the web download image.
If you are using a CD, copy the options file to a local, writable directory before opening it.
AIX, Linux, or Solaris
- Update the options file for your environment by using the instructions included in the file. Then save the updated file with a new name, such as options-unix-update.txt or options-windows-update.txt.
- Open a command prompt window and change to the directory where the installation launch programs are located.
- Enter the launch command, specifying the -silent and -options parameters and the name of the updated options file, including the full path to the file.
Use the following format:
InstallLauncherCommand -silent -options optionsfilename
™ commands are case-sensitive.
./setupaix.bin -silent -options options-unix-update.txt
./setuplinux.bin -silent -options options-unix-update.txt
./setupsolaris.bin -silent -options options-unix-update.txt
.\setupwin32console.exe -silent -options options-windows-update.txt
- On Windows 2008 only:
After the installation, perform this configuration step. In a text editor, open the sametime.ini
file located in the community server installation directory. For example, the default directory in Windows
is C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Domino
. Add the following line to the [Config] section to ensure continuous connections for Sametime components:
Close and save the file.
The program indicates whether the silent installation was successful by providing an exit status and logging errors. The stsetup.log
files are located in the Sametime
® data directory. If the exit status of the program and the contents of stsetup_exit_status.txt
are both 0, the installation was successful. If either of these values are anything other than 0, the installation was not successful. Check the stsetup.log
files in the server data directory for information.
