Perform the following steps:
  1. Copy the response file to a local directory.
  2. Edit the following sections:

    Note: Ensure that all the passwords that you specify in the response file are encrypted as described in Encrypting user passwords for response files.
  3. Save the file with your changes.
  4. Open a command-line prompt.
  5. Go to the Installation Manager tools directory.
    The default tools directory is:
    On Windows operating systems
    C:\Program Files\IBM\Installation Manager\eclipse\tools
    On UNIX and Linux operating systems
  6. Run the following command:
    On Windows operating systems
    imcl.exe input <local_dir>\response_file.xml 
    -log <local_dir>\log_file.xml 
    On UNIX and Linux operating systems
    ./imcl input /<local_dir>/response_file.xml 
    -log /<local_dir>/log_file.xml 
    • The response_file.xml is the name of the response file to be used for installation.
