Installing Oracle Unified Directory in silent mode

By default, the OUD installer runs in GUI mode. Alternatively, it is possible to install and setup OUD in silent mode.

First, download the OUD bits, then run the installer in silent mode. Last but not least setup/configure OUD in silent mode as well.

To run the installer in silent mode, either run it in GUI mode on your laptop or any system with a GUI and record your answers so that you can replya them on another system in silent mode. Alternatively, you can build a response file manually for OUD.

To record your answers, run the installer with the option -record, e.g

./runInstaller -record -destinationFile /tmp/OUD.rsp

To the installer with an existing response file (silent mode)

./runInstaller -silent -responseFile /tmp/OUD.rsp

A response file template is available at the end of this post. You need to change values for ORACLE_HOME and MIDDLEWARE_HOME.

After this install, you can setup oud in cli mode (oud-setup), either interactive or in batch.

oud-setup –cli –no-prompt -D “cn=directory manager” -j $PASS_FILE -p $PORT1 –adminConnectorPort $APORT1 –noPropertiesFile
