Using the default response file

Use the default response file to specify silent installation parameters for your environment.

Encrypt your administrator passwords. For more information about encrypting passwords, see the Creating encrypted passwords for a response file topic.

Silent installation uses the parameters in a response file to install the same HCL Connections profile on multiple computers.

If you are silently installing HCL Connections as a non-root user in a Linux™ environment, you must specify that parameter in the silent-install.ini file.

  1. Navigate to the connections_root directory and open the LC.rsp response file.

  2. Specify your installation parameters. For more information, see the The default response file topic.

  3. Add the encrypted passwords to the relevant elements of the response file. The following example shows the elements for the Activities passwords:

    <data key='user.activities.adminuser.password' value='encrypted\_password'/>
    <data key='user.activities.dbUserPassword value='encrypted\_password'/>

    where encrypted_password is the password after you encrypted it.

  4. Change the default WebSphere® Application Server administrator name from wasadmin if your administrator name is different.

  5. Save your changes.

  6. If you are performing the silent installation as a non-root user on Linux systems, complete the following steps:

    1. Open the silent-install.ini file for editing from the following location:

      • Linux: HCL_Connections_set-up/HCL_Connections_Install/IM/linux/silent-install.ini
      • Linux on System z®: HCL_Connections_set-up/HCL_Connections_Install_s390/IM/zlinux/silent-install.ini where HCL_Connections_set-up is the HCL Connections set-up directory or installation media.
    2. In the second line of the file, change admin to nonadmin.

    3. Save and close the file.
