9.6 command line Installer

How can you install webMethods 9.6 from the command line using an image?

When I am trying to do this, I can’t find the right option and it makes to connect to the external installer server. :oops:

Hi Avner,

What is the command you are using while installing webMethods 9.6?

Can you share your OS details?

Linux 2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jan 29 11:47:41 EST 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Here are the screens which I get:
[webmethods@cmtolpcipgwm02 96]$ java -jar SoftwareAGInstaller20140415.jar

Hi Avner,

your command should like this:

java -jar SoftwareAGInstaller20140415.jar -console -readImage -installDir

The first option forces the CommandLine mode, so that the X11-Messages will disapear.
The second specifies the location and name of your prepared image.
The third identifies the directory in to which you will be installing.

There more options available.
See “java -jar SoftwareAGInstaller20140415.jar -console -help” for details.

Or refer to the Installation Guide which is available from Empower or via this community service.

Regards,
Holger
