Does anyone have recommendations for pros and cons when using silent mode of installation… to build a new environment when compared to conventional gui install and then customize per requirements?
java -jar webMethodsInstaller71.jar -console -silent silent.xml
I understand there will be hell lot of scripting to do which could involve opening files after a vannila install for changing parameters which can be anywhere like
- Xmx and Xms parameters from default settings.
- adding packages
- customizing config files to change requisite parameters
to name a few…
In short how much level of automation is too much to go for…?
OR ALTERNATIVE OPTION just build a complete product suite and tar-untar to various machines to keep simplest and exact level of consistency across the builds…
Thanks for your thoughts n suggestions…:talker: :uhoh:
