Issue/Introduction

When executing the command line from the documentation, The password sync agent is still requesting information via the eTrust Admin Password Sync Configuration (Step 1 of 3) wizard to manually enter the hostname, LDAP port and Domain even though I already filled in these details inside the silent_install.conf file.

Cause

Missing Declaration within the silent_install.conf

Environment

Release : 14.X

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)

Resolution

This issue is caused by not having the Settings Header declared (Bolded below) in the conf file. Please see the sample conf file below with explanations.

[Settings]
silent-install= yes
# Enter the Provisioning Server host name.
server-host= MyIpAddress
# By default, the Provisioning Server port is set to 20390.

# Enter the Provisioning Server domain name. Default is im
domain= im
