Has anyone tried to install "IBM Data Server Runtime Client.msi" with qb! switch?

While installing this app with /qb switch, the application rollbacks.

The reason it errors out is that it's looking for a response file.

From the log:

1: ERROR:DB2 Setup is unable to open the response file "". 
1: ERROR:Unable to set the response file "" in the up and running engine. 
1: ERROR:Unable to initialize the response file. 
CustomAction DB2ConfigClientCA.2BC48F01_561E_4906_8321_946A9F5A90AA returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
Action ended 11:51:14: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.

The .msi creates a response file called DB2RL000.rsp in the %TEMP% folder during a normal installation that can be copied out and used for a silent installation.

The command line would be:

msiexec /L*v [YourLogFile] /i "IBM Data Server Runtime Client.msi" RSP_FILE_PATH=DB2RL000.rsp /qn

Assuming the .msi and .rsp files are in the current directory.

log the installation using the parameter /L*V and look for errors.

  • I did.I know the CA also.But its a DLL CA "DB2ConfigClientCA.2BC48F01_561E_4906_8321_946A9F5A90AA".It seems this has important functionality. and must not be commented.
    This CA runs only during installation.
    Application install fine without qb, also log files shows success for this CA. - Jayesh2011 8 years ago
  • could it be there's a customaction that's only scheduled in the UIExecuteSequence, that does not run when yousuppress the UI with /qb, and makes the install fail? (this would mean a /qn install would fail too..)

    If so, copy this/these CA to the InstallExecuteSequence so it also runs during silent installs. - pjgeutjens 8 years ago
  • We approached that way also.Had commented all the CA,s of UI except for Progress bar, but still we are not able to reproduce the behavior as when qb! switch is used. - Jayesh2011 8 years ago

Can you check if there`s an CA with UILimit as its condition. Check to see if it is as UILimit<5 or like.

Is Install execute sequence has UILevel condition(UILevel>5) for any action (CA)?
