Unattended mode reads the selections and settings for the installation from a user-modifiable response file, which enables you to easily duplicate the installation on many computer systems. Manual intervention is not necessary after you execute the setup command.

The response file, named <product>-response.txt, is located in the /utils directory. The file provides instructions and examples of command line options that are passed to the installation program in Unattended mode. The command line options are organized by process flow, which is almost identical to that of Wizard mode or CLI mode.


For instructions on installing the Service Assurance Manager Server in Unattended mode, complete the steps in the following section. To install other Service Assurance Manager products after Server install, refer to “Installing the Service Assurance Manager Console, or the Smarts NOTIF Editor, or both” on page 32.
