1) Extracted the setup.exe by using the following
2) Setup.exe /a to a location that you want. This
would extract the language pack also, something like MRI2XXX(not really sure of
2) Create a transform to cwbinstall.msi if needed. If not just leave it alone.
3) Then modify the setup.ini file
3) In the commandline area to something like this.
4) Then wrap the whole thing with the command line
setup.exe /s /v"/qn"
6) When you run this is it a silent install. But there is a Microsoft C++ 2005 redistributable that you need to install to install the service pack.
5) Reboot the machine.
6) If you have a service pack that you need to install then so the same thing like you did to the main installation. But there is a Microsoft C++ 2005 redistributable that you need to install to install the service pack. And do this commandline
9) image32\setup.exe /s /v"/qn"
7) That should install the whole thing.
Deploying through KACE or SCCM 2007/2012:
Not Really sure how KACE works. But you need to create a task sequence in SCCM 2007/12(worked fine for both the SCCM's), which would do the following.
1) Reboot the machine no matter what first.
2) If there are any older versions remove them. ( skip if it a new machine install)
3) Reboot the machine again.
4) Install the main IBM iAccess Package first along with the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.
5) Reboot the machine
6) Install the service pack.
7) Reboot the machine again after that. That should take care of the whole install.
Hopefully this helps you man. It has been working great for me. No issues none so far.
For installing Axe
Install the software manually and then get the files aksllmtp.exe, hasplms.exe from System32.
extract the msi from the EXE and then use the following commandline to install the software.
MsiExec.exe /i AxeSetup.msi AXESETUP=/nohasp /qn to make it a silent install.
Then run the following commandlines
which would start the license manager
For uninstall do the same thing.
MsiExec.exe /X AxeSetup.msi AXESETUP=/nohasp /qn. Where you can silently uninstall the product.
I think almost everyone knows how to create a package for IBM functional Tester. But these are the basic things that you need to do while creating a package for that .
1) Create a package that would install the IBM Installation Manager.( Dont worry about the upgrade of Installation managew, becoz the installation would automatically upgrade the package).
2) Create the .xml files for how the installation should happen. The xml file would contain the location of the repository sources and the where the license files are located.
For silent installation this the command line.
C:\Program Files\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse\IBMIM.exe --launcher.ini silent-install.ini -input "U:\responsefile.xml"
U: drive that is right. U need to map the drive for the installation to happen. The source directory should be mapped first for the installation to happen.
