Customize Initialization Information for a Silent Installation

The Connect:Direct® server supports an INI file, which can specify the value of installation properties. If you plan to use the INI file to manage a silent installation, change the parameters of the INI file provided with Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows to specify site-specific information.

The Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows server initialization file (CD_SRVR.INI) is located on the CD in the /advanced folder. The Connect:Direct Requester and SDK installations do not use initialization files. To set the installation directory for an installation, specify the INSTALLDIR property in the command line.

To define site-specific parameter values in an INI file for each node where you install Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows using the silent installation, do the following:

  1. Open the CD_SRVR.INI file using any text editor, such as Microsoft Windows Notepad.
  2. Define the site-specific initialization parameters for a node and save the file.
  3. Repeat steps 1–2 for each server where Connect:Direct will be installed.
