Issue/Introduction

User wants to install system agent 11.5 or above on a non-primary drive, e.g. D: or E: with AutoSys (AE) mode.

The installer for 11.5 and above now requires AUTOROOT_PATH when AE mode is selected.  By default the agent will get installed under:

 C:\\%ProgramFiles%\\CA\\WorkloadAutomationAE

 

Environment

Release : 11.5, R12

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

If user intends to install agent in D: or any other non-primary drive then use the silent install option.  Set following two properties in installer file.  Both the parameters must have same directory path.  The WA Agent will install under this AUTOROOT_PATH.

AUTOSYS_INSTALL_LOCATION=E:\\CA\\Agent
AUTOROOT_PATH=E:\\CA\\Agent

Example of properties file, change values of properties as needed.

INSTALLER_UI=SILENT
AUTOSYS_MODE=true
ACCEPT_EULA=ACCEPT

#change directory path as per your requirements
#For windows path, use double \\

AUTOSYS_INSTALL_LOCATION=E:\\CA\\agent

AUTOROOT_PATH=E:\\CA\\agent

Save the installer file with extension as properties.  E.g. silent.properites.   Save the file properties and setup.exe in same directory on Windows machine.

Open command prompt and change directory to location of setup.exe and properties file.  Run these command:

set TMP=E:\temp

set TEMP=E:\temp

setup.exe -f silent.properties

 

Note: Change E: to any other drive where agent is being installed.

The agent should install without any prompt.
