Unattended Installation Using a Custom Package on UNIX Client

You can configure a direct connection from the CommServe computer to the client during an unattended installation using a custom package on a UNIX client.

Before You Begin

You must create a placeholder for the client that will receive connections from the CommServe computer. Follow the appropriate instructions based on the type of network route configuration:


From the command prompt on the UNIX client, run the following command:

./silent_install -fwtype 1 -csclientname <CS clientname> -tunnelport <tunnelport> -authcode <authcode>


  • fwtype 1 means that the CommServe client can open a tunnel to this client (required)
  • <CS clientname> is the CommServe client name (optional)
  • <tunnelport> is the tunnel port of the local client (optional)
  • <authcode> is the authcode of the CommCell or company (optional)

Note: If you run the command without optional parameters, the installation procedure will use recorded information from the custom package.
