Scripting Question

IBM Notes 9.0.1 Fixpack silent install

06/21/2017 6518 views
I am trying to do a silent installation for IBM Notes 9.0.1. FP8. I found some posts where people were asking about it for older fixpacks and/or fixpacks for 8.5.X, but those scripts don't work for me. I am trying some iteration of the following in command line:

notes901FP8_win.exe /S /v"/qn" and have tried additional commands like "/qn ALLUSERS=1" and using -s and -a

This gets past the intial screen about unpacking the fixpack, but ultimately it gets to the Welcome To The InstallShield Wizard with a next button and I can't figure out how to get it install beyond this. Any ideas?

I don't think your '/qn' should be in quotes but, whatever. Since the installer ultimately extracts and executes an MSI, why not simply extract the MSI and use the MSIEXEC.EXE command line arguments against that?

  • Yeah the quotes didn't make sense to me either, but I saw at least 3-4 different posts about this and each one included them so I figured eh, why not? Doesn't matter, it doesn't work with or without them.

    Anyhow, yeah extracting and running the .msi with /quiet and /qn seems to work! Thanks for the tip!!
