Starting and stopping Cognos Analytics in silent mode on UNIX and Linux operating systems

You run IBM® Cognos® Configuration in silent mode to apply the configuration settings and start the services on UNIX or Linux® operating system computers that do not support a Java-based graphical user interface.

Before you run the configuration tool in silent mode, you should ensure the cogstartup.xml file is valid according to the rules defined in the cogstartup.xsd file. The cogstartup.xsd file is located in the install_location/configuration directory.
