  • EFT, all versions

QUESTION

Can EFT be installed "silently" using a script/batch file?

ANSWER

Yes, you can install EFT silently, including when EFT is deployed in an active-active, high availability cluster configuration.

If you install EFT HA via the silent installer, then, once configured, if you upgrade EFT via the install wizard, EFT fails to start the server service. The install wizard is setting the EFT server configuration details to the default paths.

This issue only occurs when you use the silent installer for the initial deployment, then follow with an upgrade using the wizard. If you use the wizard for both installing and upgrading, or the silent installer for both installing and upgrading, this issue does not occur.

In EFT v7.4.7 and later Silent installations or after importing older versions of AWE tasks, an AWE task will not be updated until you open it in the Task Builder.

Refer to the attached PDF for details, or to the in-application or online help for your version of EFT.
