Silent/Batch Installation of Dbvisit Standby Version 7.0 and 8.0

Follow

Description

Automate Installation process of Dbvisit Standby using batch scripts and providing arguments to install file. This can be done in both version 7.0 and Version 8.0


Steps Performed for Version 7.0

Yes, this is an option on the Linux/Unix platforms with v7. Please see the following when running against the installer:

oracle@dbvlin801[/usr/tmp/dbvisit/installer]: ./install-dbvisit -silent

Option to install product with all default values accepted:

--batch-install

Available options and default values for batch installation:

Installation directory? (default: /usr/dbvisit) 
--install-dir /usr/dbvisit 
-------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Dbvserver interface, HTTP or HTTPS? (default: https): 
--dbvserver-protocol https 
 
Dbvserver listening port number for HTTP or HTTPS? (default: 8443): 
--dbvserver-port 8443 
 
Dbvserver user name for login page? (default: admin): 
--dbvserver-username admin 
 
Dbvserver password for the above user? (default: admin): 
--dbvserver-password admin 
 
Dbvserver, start daemon after the installation to provide access to the Dbvisit web interface? (default: yes) 
--dbvserver-start y(es)|n(o) 
-------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Dbvnet listening port number? (default: 7890): 
--dbvnet-port 7890 
 
Dbvnet password to encrypt network data transfers? (default: admin): 
--dbvnet-password admin 
 
Dbvnet, start daemon after the installation to enable secure network data transmissions between servers? (default: yes) 
--dbvnet-start y(es)|n(o) 
-------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Automatically send email notification to the Dbvisit support team if an issue is detected in Dbvserver or Dbvnet? (default: yes) 
--bug-track y(es)|n(o) 
 
Email address to be used? (default: [bugtrack700@dbvisit.com](mailto:bugtrack700@dbvisit.com)) 
--bug-track-email [bugtrack700@dbvisit.com](mailto:bugtrack700@dbvisit.com)Debug option: 
--debug

So the correct syntax should resemble the following:

./install-dbvisit --batch-install --install-dir /usr/dbvisit --dbvserver-protocol https --dbvserver-port 8443 --dbvserver-username admin --dbvserver-password admin --dbvserver-start y --dbvnet-port 7890 --dbvnet-password admin --dbvnet-start y

 --dbvagent-passphrase kiwi123  --dbvserver-local-host dbvlab01  --dbvserver-local-port 4433
