I had performed a Silent installation of WXS 8.5.
But I missed to select the "Console Server Installation" during the generation of response file which was used for silent installation.
Now I want to add the "Console Server Installation" which I missed earlier. Can anyone let me know how this can be done?
Should I create a new response file containing those set of properties and then use update installation. Would this have any other repercussions on the environment?
Any quick help would be highly appreciated.

Re: WXS Silent Installation Issue?2013-01-14T19:45:14Z in response to SystemAdminI have not done updates using silent install but I have using graphical install. I have had to help customers add the console several times as an update and it worked fine. I think it very likely your plan would work fine, and my reading of the product doc says this is supported (meaning if you hit a bug with this you can get IBM help).

Re: WXS Silent Installation Issue?2013-01-14T20:23:45Z in response to SystemAdminHello! You can add a list of features that are separated by commas when doing a silent install.
IBMIM.exe install com.ibm.websphere.WXS.v85,xs.console.feature
That would install the server and the console. Try installing the xs.console.feature silently on your already existing install. It looks like you are using the response file, so put that in your xml.
Otherwise, go back and generate a new response file, and then run the silent install again.
The monitoring console isn't going to change any configuration you have setup, so I wouldn't worry about repercussions, but it's always a good idea to test it out on your own machine first.
