(UNIX/Linux) Agent Silent Installation

The following instructions are for silent installations of agents on platforms for which the agent installer is provided. These include Linux, AIX, Solaris SPARC, and HPUX Itanium platforms.

Important: If you are installing on a 64-bit Linux system, be aware that the UNIX installers are 32-bit applications, and your system may not support 32-bit applications by default. Before running the installer on a 64-bit Linux system, ensure that the following are installed:
  • Motif: This is usually available by default
  • 32-bit compatibility libraries: C/C++ runtime

To install an agent in silent mode:

  1. Download the appropriate agent installer for your platform.
  2. Create an options file and save as:


    Note: Your optionsFile should be in ANSI format; the agent installer does not support UTF.
  3. Issue the command:

    DA-agent.bin –silent –options optionsFile.txt



    is the options file you created in Step 2.
