Installing agents in silent mode#

In silent mode, you specify the installation properties in a text file and then run the installation without command-line prompts.

You specify the installation properties in a properties file. The example.agent.install.properties file is provided as an example of a properties file. The example.agent.install.properties file is in the ucd-agent.zip archive.

  1. Copy the following file from the HCL Launch server to the target system: installation_folder/opt/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/tools/ucd-agent.zip.

  2. Extract the ucd-agent.zip archive file.

  3. Open the example.agent.install.properties file for editing, or copy the example.agent.install.properties file to a new properties file.

  4. Customize the installation by editing the properties file.

    If you do not specify a property, the default value is used. Some properties in the example file are commented out by default. For a list of these properties, see Agent installation properties.

  5. Save the file.

  6. Run the installation file with the install-agent-from-file.bat command on Windows™ or the ./install-agent-from-file.sh command on Linux. Provide the properties file as a command-line argument.

    On Windows, if the properties file is named install.properties, type the following command:

    install-agent-from-file install.properties

The installation program installs the agent.

Upgraded or installed agents are migrated to compact mode. Note that agents are updated to compact only if the agent is installed/upgraded on a platform that supports compact agents.

Start the agent. See Starting agents.
