Issue/Introduction

Using the DVD for R12.1 ("AutoSysWIN12.1.00.00.iso"), we generated a response file on a Windows 2019 host, for installing one client and the agent. 

It contains 400+ lines; however, several lines are only comments, empty/hashed and with variables with no values (mostly because they're not relevant).

In order to keep the file contents limited to the most relevant, can we apply the following filters? It reduces the number of lines to less than 50.

- Remove all empty lines,
- Remove all lines beginning with a hash (#),
- Remove all lines containing variables and no/null values,
- Remove the lines like the below:

 When set to 1 actual AutoSys installation is skipped, but all the required validations are performed and recorded in the logs.
 This helps you identify any shortcomings before performing the actual install.

Environment

Release : 12.1
