Hi, I am creating a silent install script to use with an automation tool for deployments to our estate.
We are not using the kickstart script, as required by our organisation & agreed with DynaTrace.
I've got a script with pre-checks for various things on the OS, such as filesystem, java version etc.
However, I found that when I run the installer, the script just hangs - I think due to the reboot prompt that the installer .bin file presents at the end of the installation.
Can I override the reboot prompt by forcing it to reboot once completed, or by-pass the reboot & get the automation tool to handle it?
If not, is it possible to extract the RPMs & scripts from the installer /bin & then run each via a script to allow the automation tool to run the install?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Which automation tool are you using? I've automated AMD installs and upgrades using Chef and for the reboot step, I told it to enter in "y" and then [carraige return]. Then, we could just deploy, the box would restart, and then you'd have an AMD upon next boot 🙂
We generally use HPSA, as far as I can see, I need to have the 'y' to reboot within my install script :S. I can't think of any way to get a bash script to do this either - it just hangs when running the line to do the install...
