The silent installation provides a way to record or capture GUI-based installation selections into a file that can be referenced later for future unattended installations. Refer to the prerequisites section before installation. 
Along with mentioned prerequisites, ensure that the etc/host entries are correct. 
 
Silent Installation:
 
  1. Copy the CA Business Intelligence JasperReports Server 6.4.3 media locally to the server and browse to the ca_install folder within the base directory.
  2. Execute the following to launch the GUI installer and begin capturing inputs for generation of the properties file:
     
    Windows:
     
    setup.bat -r <
    responsefilename
    >.properties
     
    Linux:
     
    setup.sh -r <
    responsefilename
    >.properties
  3. Provide required installation input parameters and refer to the GUI section for any required guidance on each step.
  4. On completion, a pop-up window appears with the message that the properties file <
    responsefilename
    >.properties has been generated within the current directory.
  5. If any changes are made to input parameters, they can be done so through direct modification to the <
    responsefilename
    >.properties file.
  6. To begin silent installation using the newly generated response file, execute the following command:
     
    Windows:
     
    setup.bat -f <
    responsefilename
    >.properties -i silent
     
    Linux:
     
    setup.sh -f <
    responsefilename
    >.properties -i silent
  7. The installation begins and the log file is saved to %TEMP% (Windows) or /tmp (Linux).
  8. After successful installation, Start the Tomcat application server service and follow the verification steps.
