Installing files in NOGUI mode

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:

install -argument

Complete the following steps:

  1. Mount the CD-ROM:

    /usr/sbin/mount -v ’cdrfs’ -r’’ device_name /cdrom 

    where device_name is the CD-ROM drive device name and /cdrom is the name of the directory where the CD is to be mounted.

    NoteThe location of the mount command is site-specific, and might be different than what is shown in these instructions. If you cannot mount the CD-ROM drive using the path shown, consult your operating system documentation or contact your operating system administrator.

  2. At the prompt, type:

    cd /CDROM
    ./install -c
  3. Select the type of install to perform.

  4. From the prompt, enter the installation directory (the default is /usr/sybase/).

  5. Select one of the following:

  6. 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:

For information on licensing features on the primary license host, see Chapter 3, “Sybase Software Asset Management (SySAM).”
