Issue/Introduction

When installing CAPC with:

./CAPerfCenterSetup.bin -f /tmp/my_capc.properties -i silent

Install fails. 

Repeated without "-i silent" and found install prompting for passwords.  Assume this is MySql password, but even after typing in MySql password 3x times, install finishes, but same password doesn't allow login to mysql. 

Environment

Release : 19.3 3.7.5

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

We strip the passwords from the properties file for security reasons. You need to edit the silent.properties file and put the password in the following fields then run the silent install. 

DB_PASSWORD_VARIABLE=

DB_PASSWORD_CONFIRM=
