Performing a silent installation

The silent installation is performed by recording either a GUI or a text-based installation, then running the recorded installation in silent mode. For silent installations, you are required to download the IBM Installation Manager, which starts up and runs the installation.

About this task

Silent installations are performed in two phases:
  • Recording one or more silent installation response.xml files
  • Running a silent response.xml installation file
You can modify and use the response.xml file to run the installation again. Optionally, you can also record multiple silent installation files, which enable you to apply alternative settings for different installation scenarios.
