Recording a response file
You can record a response file when installing and updating Sterling B2B Integrator and use the response files to install or update additional nodes.
A response file is an XML file with configuration information from a previous installation. It provides the input that is required for installation or upgrade. Most of the configuration details and other information that is required for installing and updating Sterling B2B Integrator nodes are recorded in the response file. However, you must modify values for some parameters based on whether you are installing or updating initial or additional nodes or clustered and non-clustered environments.
While recording the response file, you can use the
skipInstall option to skip
actual installation and record the file.
To record a response file, complete the following steps:
|If you do not have the Installation Manager installed and are using the Installation Manager agent provided with V6.0||Go to the IM_<operating_system> directory and run the following
|If you have a 64-bit Installation Manager installed.||Go to the IM_<operating_system> directory and run the following
|If you have Installation Manager installed on a platform that has only one download available for Installation Manager. For example, AIX, Solaris, HP, zLinux.||Go to the IM_<operating_system> directory and run the following
|If you have 32-bit Installation Manager installed on a Linux or Windows system.||
user.sb.GUIBASED=trueis added when the response file is generated. During upgrade, if you use this response file, the system does not display the alert message on the console. So, you must remove this parameter from the response file.
On an AIX system, where you already have installed a 64-bit Installation Manager, to record a response file test_response.xml and save it in the /response_files directory, type ./userinst -record /response_files/test_response.xml
On a Linux system, where you have a 32-bit Installation Manager, to record a response file test_response.xml and save it in the /response_files directory, type ./IBMIM -record /response_files/test_response.xml
