Appendix N: Steps to Perform Installation in Unattended Mode

The unattended mode is particularly useful when we need to perform installation through an automated process. That way, the user will not be prompted for any inputs and the default values configured for each of the parameters in the .options file will be considered.

This section outlines the steps that a user needs to execute for installing DSM Administrator and the supported IDPs in unattended mode.

Install DSM Administrator

To install DSM Administrator, perform the following steps:

  1. In Distributed Node, download the “DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run” and “DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run.options” files on your local machine.

  2. Open the file using any editor and configure the values for the parameters defined in the .options file  as you deem fit. For your reference, see the below screenshot:

*Note: All the parameters with ‘# sign are comments. To make the parameters effective, remove ‘# sign from the beginning.

  1. Change the installer mode to ‘unattended’. By default, the mode is set to ‘text’. If you opt for unattended mode, installation will be done automatically, whereas in text mode, user needs to provide inputs during the installation.

  2. Save the file with the updated values.

  3. Now, copy this file to the machine on which you want to install the DSM Administrator.

*Note: In Distributed Node, you must copy both ‘DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run and ‘DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run.options’ files to the machine to successfully execute the file. Otherwise, the installer will throw an exception.

  1. In Distributed Node, run the DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run file using the below command:
    "./DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run"

    The DSM Administrator will be installed under the same directory which you have specified in the .options file.

The .run file and .options file should be of same name. If you have provided a different name to the .options file, then use the below command to execute the file: ./DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run --optionfile DgSecure-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run.options

To execute the files, give 755 permissions to the files. Run the following command to set the permission: ‘chmod 755 <filename>’.

Install IDP

To install any IDP:

  1. Copy both ‘DgSecure<IDPName>-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run and ‘DgSecure<IDPName>-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run.options’ files to the machine to successfully execute the file. Otherwise, the installer will throw an exception.

  2. Execute the .run file for the IDP.
    For example, to execute the file for Files IDP, use the below command:
    “./DgSecureFilesIDP-42.42.42.386-linux-x64-installer.run


    The IDP will be installed under the same directory which you have specified in the .options file.

The .run file and .options file should be of same name. If you have provided a different name to the .options file, then use the below command to execute the file:
./DgSecureFilesIDP-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run --optionfile DgSecureFilesIDP-<x.x.x.x>-linux-x64-installer.run.options

To execute the files, give 755 permissions to the files. Run the following command to set the permission: ‘chmod 755 <filename>’.
