To implement a silent installation in Solaris and Linux, you must create a response file that contains the parameters and input values for the required responses during installation. You can create different response files for different installation scenarios. You must create the response file before you install Symantec Protection Engine.
A default response file, called response, is included on the Symantec Protection Engine CD. The response file is a text file that is preconfigured with the default settings for the Symantec Protection Engine installation options. You must edit this response file so that it contains the input values that you want for the silent installation.
Do not delete any of the parameters in the response file. The installer must read an input value for each parameter. You must specify an input value for each parameter.
The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) port number on which encrypted files are transmitted for increased security.
The default port number is 8005.
The location where to install Symantec Protection Engine.
The default location is /opt/SYMCScan.
The name of an existing user under which Symantec Protection Engine runs.
The default setting is root.
The full path (can be a symlink) to the Java 2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 7.0 (update 51 or later) or JRE 8.0 (update 5 or later) executables.
32-bit JRE 8.0 is not available for Solaris SPARC platform.
Symantec Protection Engine supports only 32-bit versions of Java Runtime Environment. Symantec Protection Engine cannot be installed with 64-bit JRE versions.
The full path (can be a symlink) to the Java 2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 7.0 (update 51 or later) or JRE 8.0 (update 5 or later) directory.
The installer assumes that the path that you enter is correct. If the path is incorrect or the JRE version is not the correct version, Symantec Protection Engine does not function properly. (Symantec Protection Engine might not function properly even if the installer reports that the installation was successful.)
The full path to the jre/lib/client directory.
You must provide this information so that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable can locate the file libjvm.so. That file should exist in the following directory:
The JDK path is <JDK DIR>/jre/lib/<architecture>/client/libjvm.so.
The JRE start path is <JRE Dir>/lib/<architecture>/client/libjvm.so.
In Linux, a second library is required in the directory jre/lib/i386. Use the shorter path. If you have installed the JDK, use <JDK Dir>/jre/lib/i386. If you have installed the JRE, use <JRE Dir>/lib/i386.
For Solaris, the path you enter should point to .../lib/sparc/client. If you have installed the JDK, use <JDK Dir>/jre/lib/sparc/client. If you have installed the JRE, use <JRE Dir>/lib/sparc/client.
The installer assumes that the path that you enter is correct. If the path that you provide is incorrect, Symantec Protection Engine does not function properly even if the installer reports that the installation was successful.
CanRelocate (Linux only)
The Boolean value that indicates the version of the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) that you are running. If you are running RPM versions 4.0.2 or 4.1, change this setting to 0. If you are not running RPM version 4.0.2 or 4.1, do not change the default setting. The default setting is 1.
Enables URL Filtering and downloading of the URL definitions.
Possible values are as follows:
True: Use this value if you want to enable URL filtering in filtering mode and Download URL definitions.
False: Use this value if you want to disable URL Filtering and Definition Download.
This value is the default value.
To create the response file for Solaris and Linux
Locate the response file, response, on the Symantec Protection Engine CD and copy it to the /tmp directory.
For the silent installation to initiate, the response file must be located in the /tmp directory.
Rename the file as no-ask-questions and open the file.
Supply the input value for each parameter.
Make changes only to the right of the equal sign (=) for each parameter.
At AdminPassword=, copy and paste the encrypted string that the XML modifier command-line tool generated.
Ensure that you have copied the encrypted string in its entirety.
