The CA-WAAE 11.3 SP1 installation done in silent mode does not find the response file.

Command executed is: ./ -s -r <full path to response file> 




By tracing the script, following error is displayed:

Response file was either not specified or not found. Please specify -s -r <response_file> to silently install the product

Problem due to option "set -o vi 80 " which was set in /etc/profile

This option is preventing the installer to parse the arguments passed to and therefore the command cannot locate the response file

Remove "set -i vi 80" from your profile before executing the silent installation with command:

./ -s -r <full path to response file>
