Installing NetVault Backup in unattended mode

The unattended mode is supported on all operating systems. When performing unattended installations, you can specify the installation options at the command line or in an option file.

An option file is a text file that provides answers to the questions that would be asked during the installation process. Each answer is stored as a value for a variable identified in the option file. You can save the option file in any directory and assign it any valid filename.

The installer uses the default values for options that are omitted (except for the password for PostgreSQL Database Superuser, which does not have a default value).

Example warning messages:

unaligned access to 0x6000000005642f7c, ip=0x2000000004dbe520

To suppress these warning messages, start the installer by running the following command:

prctl --unaligned=silent ./<Name of the installation file> --mode unattended <options>

— or —

prctl --unaligned=silent ./<Name of the installation file> --mode unattended --optionfile <filename>

You can specify the following parameters at the command line or in the option file.

On Linux and UNIX: ./<Name of the installation file> --help

On Windows: <Name of the installation file> --help

--unattendedmodeui <interaction level>

The allowed values are:
