Upgrading to Symantec OpsCenter 7.0.1 silently on Windows
---------------------------------------------------------
Use the following procedure to upgrade OpsCenter 7.0 components to OpsCenter

A silent installation avoids the need for interactive input. A silent installation
uses a response file to automate OpsCenter installation. Use a silent installation
when you need to perform an identical installation on several servers.
You must create a response file first and then use the file to perform a silent
installation. The procedure for creating a response file requires that you run
through the Installation Wizard. The values that you specify in the Wizard pages
are saved to the response file.
You can also edit the response file if required.

Note the following points about silent installation:
 Silent installation of OpsCenter is only supported on Windows platforms.
 Silent installation of OpsCenter is not supported on clusters.

About editing the OpsCenter 7.0.1 response file
-----------------------------------------------
You can edit the response file to change any inputs that you provided to the
Installation Wizard. The silent installation is based on these inputs. To edit the
response file, open it and modify the Value field for the applicable install property.
The following are the contents of a sample response file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
- <XML_Install>
- <OpsCenter_MaintPack>
<InstallProperty Name="RAN_SETUP" Value="1" />
<InstallProperty Name="INSTALLDIR" Value="C:\Program Files\Symantec" />
</OpsCenter_MaintPack>
</XML_Install>
For example, you can modify the OpsCenter installation location in this response
file by changing the value of INSTALLDIR property from C:\Program
Files\Symantec to D:\Symantec.
Note that the text that you enter or modify in the response file is case sensitive.
You must save the response file after you modify it.
Note: Symantec recommends that you do not change the value of RAN_SETUP.
About tracking the progress of silent installation and troubleshooting tips
When a silent installation is in progress, you can see SETUP.EXE process running
in the Processes tab of the Windows Task Manager. In addition, you will also find
multiple msiexec.exe processes running in the Task Manager.
You can also track if a silent installation is in progress by checking the size of
Vxinst.log file. The size of Vxinst.log file increases as silent installation
progresses. The Vxinst.log file is generated in
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\SYMANTEC\OPSCENTER\INSTALLLOGS.
