Install agent relays in silent mode on Windows
You can configure and install a Deployment Automation agent relay in silent mode on Windows.
Install an agent relay silently
Silent mode enables you to run an installation in the background using the options file.
To install an agent relay in silent mode on Windows:
Download the agent relay installer for Windows from the Software Licensing and Downloads portal (requires login).
Create an options file, add the agent relay options, and save the file as C:/optionsFile.txt. For details, see Silent installation options for an agent relay.
Note: Make sure that the options file is in ANSI format. The agent installer does not support UTF.
From a command prompt, run this command:
install.cmd -silent -options optionsFile.txt
where optionsFile.txt is your options file.
After you install your agent relay, continue with the next steps in the Installation checklist.
The following table describes the agent relay silent installation options for Windows.
Enter the directory where to install the agent relay. If it doesn't exist, specify the directory to create, for example:
C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\agentrelay
Note: This is the only required option for the agent relay silent installation. If only this property is included, other options will have the default values.
Enter the directory where Java is installed. Ensure that the JAVA_HOME environment variable points to this directory, for example:
C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\common\jre\8.0
|AGENT_RELAY_NAME||Enter the name of the agent relay. Each agent relay must have a unique name. The default name is agent-relay.|
|PROXY_HOST||Enter the IP address or host name on which the agent relay will listen for HTTP requests coming from agents.|
Enter the port on which the agent relay will listen for HTTP requests coming from agents. Default:20080.
Note: Agent relays can also communicate through HTTPS. To enable this communication, configure the server to work through HTTPS and change the external agent link to use HTTPS. Agents then automatically connect through HTTPS. Agent relays automatically use HTTPS when agents request HTTPS links.
|AGENT_RELAY_RELAY_PORT||Enter the port which the agent relay will use for JMS-based communications with remote agents. Default: 7916.|
|AGENT_RELAY_MUTUAL_AUTH||If mutual authentication is required, enter true. For details, see Configure SSL mutual authentication .|
you want the agent relay to connect to the
Deployment Automation as follows:
|AGENT_RELAY_SERVER_HOST||If you entered true for AGENT_RELAY_CONNECT, enter the IP or host name where the agent relay can contact the server.|
|AGENT_RELAY_SERVER_PORT||If you entered true for AGENT_RELAY_CONNECT, enter the port the server uses to communicate with agents. The default is 7918.|
If you are installing the agent relay on Windows, you can install it as a Windows service. The default value is true. If you specify true, see the following table entries:
Example of silent installation settings in an options file

In this optionsFile.txt, the agent relay named Relay123 is configured to connect to the server on DAServerHost. The mutual authentication mode for the agent relay is activated. The agent relay runs as a Windows service named sda-relay123 that is set to start automatically when the system starts. The admin user account name for the agent relay Windows service is admin01, and the password is password.
