WebSphere Portal 8 - Community articleCommand-line interface to update Portal v8 response files

This article references an article from the WebSphere Portal 8 Wiki showing how to augment the response files used to install the product silently, via IBM Installation Manager.

I've excerpted some of the text from the Wiki article below: -

 To install WebSphere Portal v8 silently, you are required to provide an xml response file. This can be obtained by using the IBM Installation Manager GUI to record a response file. However if you do not have a GUI environment, this is not a valid option for you and you must manually edit a response file provided on the WebSphere Portal v8 Setup media. Manually editing this xml file can be tedious and confusing.

The attached script (updateWP8ResponseFile.sh) is designed to make this process easier on the user by providing a command-line interface with easy to understand prompts that update the response file for you.

Please refer to the Wiki article: -

for the script, and for more information.
