Issue/Introduction

The Autosys r12 installer has just one ISO (per platform that is) image for all the components which is around 1.5GB. The challenge is in distributing the Client and Agent installation package (for install through SCOM/Ansible/Git) across the environment with it.

With earlier versions (11.3.6 SP8) it is easy to create a silent install package using the Client and Agent ISO and distribute it. However, With R12, it seems every client host gets a copy of the all-in-one DVD image. This is a bit risky because the users might end up misusing the ISO by installing the server components. Also, the installer image size has doubled from 700MB to 1.5GB now which is a concern for the system administrator to publish across the client hosts.

Environment

Release: 12.0 and 12.1

Component: Autosys Workload Automation

Resolution

The installer script can be executed by removing the EEM, ERU, WCC(WebComponent), and other unwanted modules from the ISO.

This should help reduce the overall ISO size. And mitigate the risk of application teams getting a copy of the server binary.
