Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you silently install or uninstall IBM Installation Manager in order to install Rational Software Delivery Platform desktop products?

Answer

For Installation Manager 1.0.x

To silently install Installation Manager onto a default install location on Microsoft Windows:
  1. Change directory to InstallerImage_win32 folder on the first installation disk.
  2. Run setup.exe /S /v"/qn"

Installation Manager version 1.0.x does not allow for the option to specify the installation directory when silently installing itself through a response file.

If you want to change the install location, it can be done through a command line install by adding the INSTALLDIR property inside the /v option.
Example:
setup.exe /S /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=\"C:\InstallationManager\""


To silently uninstall Installation Manager on Windows:
Run this command in the command prompt:
msiexec /x {DBD90D51-BD46-41AF-A1F5-B74CEA24365B}


To silently install Installation Manager onto a default install location on Linux®:
  1. Change directory to InstallerImage_linux folder on the first installation disk.
  2. Run
    setupLinux.bin -silent -V licenseAccepted=true
    .

"-V licenseAccepted=true" option is used to state that you accept the license agreement on the use of Installation Manager.

If you want to change the install location, you can add -P installLocation="<new dir>" flag. For example:

setupLinux.bin -silent -P installLocation="/opt/myIM" -V licenseAccepted=true


To silently uninstall Installation Manager on Linux:
  1. Open a terminal window with root user privileges.

    _uninst.
  3. Run ./uninstaller.bin -silent.

In Installation Manager v1.1 you will need to add the following to your install.xml in order to modify the installation directory to your specified INSTALLDIR


<profile kind='self' installLocation='INSTALLDIR\eclipse' id='IBM Installation Manager'>
<data key='eclipseLocation' value='INSTALLDIR\eclipse'/>
</profile>
<install>
<offering profile='IBM Installation Manager' ... />
</install>
