Applying or Rolling Back the Client HotFix in Silent Mode

Applying or Rolling Back the Client HotFix in Silent Mode

To apply the hotfix in silent mode, create the
SilentInput.properties
file and then run the installer with the file.
Informatica provides a sample properties file, called
SilentInput_hotFix.properties
, that includes the parameters that are required by the installer. The following example shows the contents of the file:
########################################################## # Informatica Installer Build details # Copyright (c) 1993-2017 Informatica LLC # This software contains confidential and proprietary # information of Informatica LLC # All Rights Reserved. ########################################################## # Use the following guidelines when editing this file: # * Use this file to install without user interaction. # * After you create the properties file, save the file with the name SilentInput.properties. # * Any error condition that leads to failure, such as an invalid # installation directory, generates a log file in the user home directory. # For example: c:\silentErrorLog<time_stamp>.log USER_INSTALL_DIR=c:\Informatica\10.2.0 HotFix 1 ####### # After you create the properties file, save the file with the name SilentInput.properties and # run the silent installer to perform the Informatica client installation. #######
  1. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files.
  2. Locate the
    SilentInput_HotFix.properties
    file.
  3. Back up the file before you modify it.
  4. Use a text editor to open the file and modify the values. The following table describes the installation properties that you can modify:
    Property Name
    Description
    INSTALL_TYPE
    Indicates whether to apply the hotfix or roll back the hotfix. If the value is 0, the installer applies the hotfix to the current Informatica client installation. If the value is 1, the installer rolls back the current hotfix.
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    Directory for the Informatica installation on which to apply or roll back the hotfix.
    To apply the hotfix to the Informatica clients, enter the absolute path for the directory in which the current version of the Informatica clients is installed.
    To roll back the hotfix, enter the absolute path for the directory in which the current version of the Informatica clients is installed.
  5. Save the properties file with the name SilentInput.properties.
  6. Go to root of the client installer directory.
  7. Verify that the directory contains the
    SilentInput.properties
    file that you edited and saved.
  8. To apply or roll back the hotfix on Windows, double-click the
    silentInstallHotFix.bat
    .
    If you apply a hotfix, the installer copies the Informatica files to the installation directory. If you roll back a hotfix, the installer removes the last hotfix and restores the previous version of Informatica.
  9. Verify that the hotfix or rollback completed successfully.
  10. Complete the post-installation tasks.
