Using the database wizard in silent mode for DB2
Run the database wizard in silent mode when you need an identical installation on multiple servers.
Ensure that the wizard has created the response.properties file in the user_settings/lcWizard/response/dbWizard directory.
To create a response file, run the wizard in standard mode and specify that you would like to create a response file. You can modify the existing response file or create your own, using a text editor.
- Before removing (or dropping) a database, stop Connections first to ensure that no database connection is in use; otherwise you will not drop the user and the database removal will not occur.
- If you run dbWizard.bat but the database wizard does not launch, check whether you have 32-bit DB2 installed. You need to have 64-bit DB2 on a 64-bit system.
To create databases in silent mode, complete the following steps:
Attention: The HCL Connections 7.0 database wizard does not create the database for the Community Highlights / Connections Engagement Center (CEC) or Feature Foundation | Export entries to PDF and provides support for Tailored Experience. The Community Highlights database scripts are located in the folder - /Wizards/connections.sql/icec. The Feature Foundation database scripts are located in the folder - /Wizards/connections.sql/ic360. Refer to the procedure in this section to create the databases. You will need to manually run the SQL scripts that are provided with HCL Connections™. See Creating databases for more information.
(DB2® on Windows™ OS.) You must perform DB2 administration tasks with full administrator privileges. Logged in as the instance owner, open a command prompt and change to the DB2 bin directory. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN. Enter the following command: db2cwadmin.bat. This command opens the DB2 command line processor while also setting your DB2 privileges.
Logged in as the instance owner, open a command prompt and change to the DB2 bin directory. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\SQLLIB\BIN.
Enter the following command: db2cwadmin.bat. This command opens the DB2 command line processor while also setting your DB2 privileges.
From a command prompt, change to the directory where the wizard is located.
Launch the wizard by running the following command:
- Linux®: ./dbWizard.sh -silent response_file
- Microsoft® Windows: dbWizard.bat -silent response_file where response_file is the file path to the response file.
Note: If the path to the response_file contains a space, this parameter must be enclosed in double quotation marks (").
After the wizard has finished, check the log file in the dbUser_home/lcWizard/log/dbWizard directory for messages. The log file name uses the time as a postfix. For example: dbConfig_20110308_202501.log.
