  1. Log in as user "root"

    You must install as root on a Linux or UNIX-based operating platform.

  2. Make a copy of responsefile.txt and customize the copy.

    cp $WAS_HOME/bin/responsefile.txt myresponsefile
    vi myresponsefile

  3. Install using the custom response file...

    install -options ./myresponsefile

    To determine if the silent installation is successful, examine the log.txt file for a line similar to this...
