46.2 Installing Analyzer Silently

A silent (non-interactive) installation does not display a user interface or ask the user any questions. Instead, InstallAnywhere uses information from a default analzerInstaller.properties file. You can run the silent installation with the default file or edit the file to customize the installation process.

By default, the installation program installs Analyzer in the Program Files (x86)\NetIQ\Analyzer directory.

  1. Log in as root or an administrator to the computer where you want to install Analyzer.

  2. (Conditional) If you have the .iso image file for the Identity Manager installation package, navigate to the directory containing the Analyzer installation files, located by default in the products/Analyzer/ directory.

  3. Conditional) If you downloaded the Analyzer installation files from the NetIQ Downloads website, complete the following steps:

    1. Navigate to the .tgz or win.zip file for the downloaded image.

    2. Extract the contents of the file to a folder on the local computer.

  4. (Optional) To specify a non-default installation path, complete the following steps:

    1. Open the analzerInstaller.properties file, located by default in the products/Analyzer/ directory.

    2. Add the following text to the properties file:

      USER_INSTALL_DIR=installation_path
  5. To run the silent installation, issue one of the following commands:

    • Linux: install -i silent -f analyzerInstaller.properties

    • Windows: install.exe -i silent -f analyzerInstaller.properties

  6. (Conditional) On Linux computers, complete the steps in Section 46.3, Adding XULrunner to Analyzer.ini on Linux Platforms.
