Is there any way of automated the Sybase installation? IE are there any
command-line options with the setup file and a means of doing a silent
installation vai an answer file.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks


Jeremy

Hi Jeremy

you can use the sybatch utility (available since 11.5.1 - I think). There
is a sample resource file in the directory $SYBASE/sample/server. It is
called sybase_sample.res and has some very basic information in it. For
more information you can look at the online manuals under
http://www.sybase.com/support/manuals/ and search for sybatch.
It works fine under Windows NT 4.0 but it seems to have some difficulties
under Windows 2000.

Hope this helps

I have succesfully tried that but it still requires the appropriate files to
have been unloaded on to the PC in the first place.

Is there any switch to run the Setup program for Server and Client such that
you can do an un-attended install??



Thanks in advance

Jeremy

I did the normal installation for ASE 11.5.1 on NT 4.0. And aborted the
installation when asked if the server creation should be performed.
After removing unneccesary directories (samples etc...) I use an installation
tool (MS or Wise or something similar) to make an installation executable. This
copies the files onto the destination computer and then runs the sybatch tool.

Have you tried this on Windows 2000? Does it work? If you tried and it does -
what are the sybatch-parameters in the resource file you are using!?
