To install components in a NOGUI environment, perform all pre-installation preparation steps as described; however, replace the window-based Studio Installer instructions (Chapter 4, “Installing Sybase Servers”) with these instructions.
There are several arguments you can use when you run Studio Installer from the command line. The syntax is:
Use this argument to display output normally sent to the Installer.log.
Use this argument to provide the file name of the file that contains all the input you want to use for a silent installation.
Before using this argument, you must create a file containing all the installation inputs (target directory, components to be installed, and so on).
Use this argument run the installer without the graphical user interface. The Studio Installer prompts the user for the required user input.
Use this argument to print more detailed information to the Installer.log, which is useful for tracking abnormal executions of installations.
Use this argument to obtain version information for the installer. Do not use any other arguments when using this argument.
After you have installed the software, you can proceed with the installation of Adaptive Server in a noninteractive environment.
Complete the following steps:
At the prompt, type:
cd x:\ .run.bat -nogui
where x: is the letter of the CD-ROM drive.
Select the type of install to perform.
From the prompt, enter the installation directory (the default is c:\sybase ).
Select one of the following:
Continue – to continue.
Previous Menu – to return to the previous screen.
Cancel – to terminate the installation procedure.
After installing the server components, restart the machine.
The installer prompts: “Have you registered Sybase Software Asset Management Certificates at a central license host?”
If Yes, enter the following information about the primary network node from which this machine will be checking out licenses:
License Manager Host is the host name of the primary network node on which you installed the asset management software.
License Manager Port is an unused port number on the primary network node. The local Adaptive Server uses this port number to contact the primary network node when checking out licenses.
For information on licensing features on the primary license host, see Chapter 3, “Sybase Software Asset Management (SySAM).”
