About this task

You can silently install the HCL Workload Automation package by using a response file that is provided with the installation eImages in the \response_files\ directory. For a list of response files, see HCL Workload Automation response file templates.

Perform the following steps:
  1. Copy the relevant response file to a local directory.
  2. Edit the HCL Workload Automation section. For details about the response file properties, see The HCL Workload Automation response file properties.
    Note: Ensure that all the passwords that you specify in the response file are encrypted as described in Encrypting user passwords for response files.
