About Virtualization, VDI, SBC, Application Compatibility and anything else I feel like
Today I needed to create a silent install for IBM WebSphere MQ, in my case version 188.8.131.52.
So I recorded a response file and tested the install using the USEINI parameter as indicated by the documentation.
However the installation failed producing only this error message:
The MSI log file only indicates:
MSI (s) (F0:64) [16:29:07:460]: Product: IBM WebSphere MQ — Installation operation failed.
Which is not very helpfull either but after some searching I found that the installer creates another log file in %temp% called amqt0001.log and there I found:
16:40:10 MQCA iwiInstallInitSec info: ***Property REMOVEFEATURES is set to ”; unacceptable for silent installation
So I looked at the response file that was generated and it has this line:
I looked up what the documentation says about REMOVEFEATURES:
Must be set to 1 or yes for a silent installation if Internet Gateway, Web Administration Server, or SupportPac MA88 are installed, or the installation fails.
Well that last line is funny but indeed after removing the semicolon (;) the installation was successfull.
