4.4.2 Performing an Unattended Installation

Table of Contents Previous Next



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:
Screenshot-Setup-1
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.
To start the installer in unattended mode, specify the -mode unattended option on the command line.
./ppasmeta-9.5.x x-linux.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:
C:\Users\susan\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-susan\VMwareDnD\8d1dcf3d\config.png
When you invoke the installer, include the --optionfile parameter, and the complete path to the configuration parameter file:
# ./ppasmeta-9.5.x x-linux.run ‑‑optionfile /$HOME/config_param
ppasmeta-windows.exe --mode unattended --superpassword database_superuser_password --servicepassword system_password ‑webusername EDB_user_name@email.com --webpassword edb_user_password
Include the --servicepassword option to specify an operating system password for the user installing Advanced Server. Omitting the option can lead to authentication problems on some Windows systems, and enforced password policies 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:
