Silent Installation Prerequisites

Before you can perform a silent installation, the following software must be installed on every computer where you are installing Toad

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1

Silent Installation Using the Executable

Use the executable file to perform a silent install to the default directory (or to a different directory) and to specify options such as logging installation messages.

To perform a silent install using the executable file

  1. At a Windows command prompt, switch to the drive or directory where the executable for Toad is located. (This file can be downloaded from the Quest Software Web site or can be found on the Toad installation CD-ROM.)
  2. For a standard installation with all features enabled, enter the following command:

    ToadInstaller.exe” /S

    You can customize MSIEXEC command-line options and overrides for your installation similar to the following command:

    ToadInstaller.exe” /S /Lx “C:\temp\installLog.txt” INSTALLDIR=”Drive:\your_install_path” USERNAME=”some_user” COMPANYNAME=”your_company” ALLUSERS=1

    Use the following descriptions to customize the command-line options and overrides for your installation.

    (Optional) Write installation messages to the specified log file.

    Substitute “C:\temp\installLog.txt” in the example with the fully qualified name of the log file. Enclose this value in double quotations. The installation process creates this file if it does not exist. Otherwise, the existing file is overwritten.

    You can add additional parameters to the logging option to indicate what type of information to log.

    • /Lx—Adds extra debugging information to the log (used in previous example)
    • /Lv—Specifies verbose output
    • /L*—Log all information, except that specified by x and v

Install Other Toad Components

Depending on your Toad license type, additional Toad components might be available. See the following sections for information about installing these components:

Toad for IBM DB2 z/OS Components

The Toad for IBM DB2 z/OS components enable you to take full advantage of Toad functionality on your DB2 for z/OS subsystem. If you do not have the z/OS components installed, Toad still provides some basic functionality to manage your DB2 for z/OS subsystems. However, with the z/OS component installed on your DB2 subsystem, you can perform these additional functions in Toad:

  • Bind and rebind packages and plans
  • Invoke DB2 for z/OS utilities and commands within scripts that Toad for IBM DB2 generates for advanced alters, migrations, and data and object synchronization
  • Run stand-alone DB2 for z/OS utilities and commands available with UIs in Toad
  • Run DB2 for z/OS commands from the Editor
  • Execute remote DB2 for z/OS scripts
  • Create, alter, or drop dataset templates
  • Use Toad UIs to run DISPLAY, START, and STOP commands on DB2 for z/OS databases, tablespaces, and indexes
  • Access accurate buffer-pool information for the DB2 subsystem
  • View volumes available for defining a storage group
  • View dataset information for tablespace and indexes
  • Access information about the current threads connected to the DB2 subsystem
  • Assign a RACF group to a Toad Security role to control the Toad features available to all users belonging to the RACF group

The z/OS components should be installed on each subsystem that you wantToad to manage. For a complete description of system requirements and installation instructions for this component, refer the Toad forIBM DB2 z/OS Components Installation Guide.

You can also tune the SQL on which you are working in the Editor. See the SQL Optimizer for IBM DB2 LUW Installation Guide for requirements and installation instructions.

SQL Optimizer for DB2 z/OS

SQL Optimizer for DB2 z/OS lets you tune the SQL used in the DDL for triggers, views, or materialized query tables and the SQL included in packages and plans. You can also tune the SQL on which you are working in the Editor.
