Using the databse wizard in silent mode for SQL Server

Run the database wizard in silent mode when you need an identical installation on multiple servers.

Ensure that the wizard has created the 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.

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.

  1. From a command prompt, change to the directory where the wizard is located.

  2. Launch the wizard by running the following command: 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.
