To specify that the installer should run without user interaction, include the --mode unattended command line option. In unattended mode, the installer uses one of the following sources for configuration parameters:
You must have superuser privileges to install Advanced Server using the --mode unattended option on a Linux system. On a Windows system, administrative privileges are required. If you are using the --mode unattended option to install Advanced Server with another installer, the calling installer must be invoked with superuser or administrative privileges.
./edb-as10-server-10.x.x-x-linux-x64.run --mode unattended
--superpassword database_superuser_password --webusername edb_user_name@email.com --webpassword edb_user_password
The --superpassword option specifies a password for the database superuser. If you omit the option, the database superuser password defaults to enterprisedb. The default password can be easily guessed by a potential intruder; be sure to provide a stronger password with the --superpassword option.
You must include the --webusername and --webpassword options to specify the identity of a registered EnterpriseDB user. There is no charge to register for an EnterpriseDB user account; if you do not have an account, you can create one at:
Then, when you invoke the installer, include the --optionfile parameter, and the complete path to the configuration parameter file:
edb-as10-server-10.x.x-x-windows-x64.exe --mode unattended --superpassword database_superuser_password --servicepassword system_password --webusername edb_user_name@email.com --webpassword edb_user_password
When invoking the installer, include the --servicepassword option to specify an operating system password for the user installing Advanced Server.
Use the --superpassword option to specify a password that conforms to the password security policies defined on the host; enforced password policies on your system may not accept the default password (enterprisedb).
Use the --webusername and --webpassword options to specify the identity of a registered EnterpriseDB user; if you do not have an account, you can create one at:
