Issue/Introduction

Information on automating the installation of a File System scanner using the command line.

Resolution

To automate installation, you can preconfigure a varfile with your installation choices, and then launch the installation from a command line.

Create a text file similar to the one below, using your specific parameters, and save the file to the same location as the relevant shell script for your scanner installation.

File Name:

FileSystemScanner.varfile

File Content:

sys.programGroup.allUsers$Boolean=true

discover.host=test-server.test.lab

discover.port=8090

sys.service.selected.417$Boolean=true

job.0.excludeFilters=

sys.languageId=en

sys.programGroup.linkDir=/usr/local/bin

installService$Boolean=false

sys.installationDir=/opt/FileSystemScanner

sys.programGroup.enabled$Boolean=true

job.0.includeFilters=

job.0.directory=/home/text_files/text_scan/text

sys.service.startupType.417=auto

startAfterInstall$Boolean=false

To run the installation with the varfile, type the following command (for Linux):

# ./FileSystemScanner_linux_8_1.sh -varfile FileSystemScanner.varfile -q

The parameter “-q” performs a silent installation.
