(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, and Solaris SPARC platforms.

Note: UNIX installers are 32-bit applications, and 64-bit systems may not support them 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 options file should be in ANSI format. The agent installer does not support UTF.

  3. From a command prompt, issue the command:

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



    is the options file you created in step 2.
