No graphical user interface installation

During an installation that uses no graphical user interface, the installation proceeds in the terminal window. When the LDU is in this mode, user input and program output appear in the terminal window. Program output is saved to the default log file, /var/log/hppldu.log.

To perform an installation with no graphical user interface, you must use the --nui option on the ./install???.sh command:

./install???.sh --nui

At the start of the --nui installation, the appropriate PSP for the installed version of Linux is determined. The PSP contains the components that support that version of Linux. These component contents are parsed to determine their installation requirements.

If any components require configuration, you are prompted for the configuration information during the installation of these components. If a password is required, you are prompted to verify the original password. After the configuration data is confirmed as valid, the --nui installation continues installing the components in the PSP.

During installation, information about each component installed appears. The name, version, and description of the installed component are shown on the console. Any data generated by the installation (including output from RPM scripts) appears in the terminal window, which continues until installation of the component is attempted.

After the installation is complete, the final status is returned by the LDU. If the reboot option was selected and the installation was successful, the server reboots. If the reboot option was not selected, you are returned to the terminal window prompt.

No graphical user interface installation

IMPORTANT: If the -s switch is used and a valid Support Pack XML file is not found or more than one valid Support Pack XML file is found, the installation will fail.
