Response file error codes (Linux and UNIX)

If you use response files during installation, you might encounter error code values. The primary error code value represents the action completion state, and the secondary error code value describes the reason for the primary value. Error codes do not always mean that an action failed.

The following tables describe error return codes (primary and secondary) that can be encountered during a response file installation.

Table 1. Primary response file installation error codes

0 The action completed successfully.
1 The action returns a warning.
67 A fatal error occurred during the installation.
