Installing Windchill RV&S Client Using Silent Install
A silent install enables you to configure the client installation options in a properties file and then run it on the Windchill RV&S client without the need for any further interaction.
If you are installing on a Linux platform, using a silent install means that you do not need to set the environment variable $DISPLAY.
There are two components to installing the server using a silent install:
configuring the file
running the silent install command
Errors that occur during the silent install are not displayed in the GUI or text output. To verify that the silent install was successful, check the return code by using the echo $? command from a command line. Non-zero exit code indicates the silent install failed.
