Install PulseUno in silent mode

Silent mode enables you to run an installation in the background using a response file that contains all the configuration properties for your installation.

Before installing, ensure that you have fulfilled the prerequisites. See Before you install.

Response properties

To run an installation in silent mode, first create a response.properties file in a text editor. Set the installation properties using this syntax:

PROPERTY_NAME=value

The following table provides a list of available response properties:

Property Description
USER_INSTALL_DIR

A path to the PulseUno installation directory. Default paths:

Windows USER_INSTALL_DIR=C:\\Program Files\\Micro Focus\\PulseUno
Linux USER_INSTALL_DIR=/opt/microfocus/PulseUno
FEATURE_PULSEUNO

The PulseUno server.

To install the module, set the property to 1. To skip, set the property to 0.

FEATURE_VAULTSERVER

The Vault server.

To install the module, set the property to 1. To skip, set the property to 0.

FEATURE_GITSERVER

The Git server.

To install the module, set the property to 1. To skip, set the property to 0.

PULSE_HOSTNAME If you are not installing the PulseUno server, specify its hostname.
PULSE_PORT If you are not installing the PulseUno server, specify its port.
GITSERVER_URL

(Optional) If you are installing PulseUno without the Git server, enter the URL path for the Git server, for example:

GITSERVER_URL=http:/localhost:8080/git-server

VAULTSERVER_URL

(Optional) If you are installing PulseUno without the Vault server, enter the URL path for the Vault server, for example:

VAULTSERVER_URL=http:/localhost:8080/vault-server

PULSE_PASSPHRASE

The passphrase that enables you to connect the modules if they are installed separately. Don’t enclose the passphrase in quotation marks, for example:

PULSE_PASSPHRASE=my-secret

Note: If you are installing each module separately, you must use the same passphrase for all the modules. You can later connect other Git and Vault instances to PulseUno using this passphrase. The passphrase is case-sensitive.

PULSE_DATA_DIR

The root directory for the data directories. Default paths:

Windows PULSE_DATA_DIR=C:\\ProgramData\\Micro Focus\\PulseUno
Linux PULSE_DATA_DIR=/opt/microfocus/PulseUno/data
DB_EMBEDDED_POSTGRES

To create an embedded PostgreSQL database, set the property to 1. Otherwise, set to 0.

PG_E_ADMINUSER Embedded PostgreSQL only: The admin’s username.
PG_E_ADMINPASS Embedded PostgreSQL only: The admin’s password.
PG_E_PORT Embedded PostgreSQL only: The port number to connect to PostgreSQL. Default: 5432.

Run a silent-mode installation

After you create a response.properties file, you can run the installation in silent mode.

To install PulseUno in silent mode:

  1. Download and unpack the installation file.

  2. Make sure you have prepared a response.properties file, as described in Response properties.

  3. From a command line, change to the directory containing the installer.

  4. Run the command for the silent mode installation:

    • On Windows, as a local system user:

      Copy code
      <installer-location>\<PulseUno-installer>.exe -f <response-file-location>\response.properties -i silent
    • On Linux, as a root user:

      Copy code
      <installer-location>/<PulseUno-installer>.bin -f <response-file-location>/response.properties -i silent

       

      where:

      <PulseUno-installer>.exe
      <PulseUno-installer>.bin
      Specifies the name of the PulseUno installation file.
      <installer-location> Specifies the full path to the PulseUno installation file.
      <response-file-location> Specifies the full path to the response.properties file.

After installing PulseUno, proceed to the Post-installation steps.
