Perform a Silent Install or Upgrade
You can perform a silent new installation, upgrade, or repair using the silentInstall.bat file or a command prompt. By default,
BEMSis installed at the following location: C:\Program Files\BlackBerry\BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Server.
A template response file
GoodServerSetup.propertiesis provided, along with a
silentInstall.bat fileand the
BEMSinstaller, in the installer zip file. The GoodServerSetup.properties file contains the variables and values of the inputs for each screen in the installer for fresh installation, along with instructions on how to edit the variables. The silentInstall.bat file is provided as a convenience to run the silent install command. If you install the
BEMSservices on separate computers or a custom location (for example, the E drive), modify the GoodServerSetup.properties file accordingly.
If you install, perform an upgrade, or repair a
BEMSinstance that is not installed in the default location, you must update the USER_INSTALL_DIR1=<
BEMS path> property in the GoodServerSetup.properties file before you run the silentInstall.bat file. For example, to install
BEMSon an E drive using the same folder path, you must complete the following steps:
- In a text editor, open the GoodServerSetup.properties file.
- Locate the existing entry "USER_INSTALL_DIR1=C:\\Program Files\\BlackBerry\\BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Server".
- Update USER_INSTALL_DIR1: parameter with the custom path (for example,USER_INSTALL_DIR1=E:\\Program Files\\BlackBerry\\BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Server)
- Save the file.

You can enter Admin-user details, machine details,
SQL Serverdetails, and other configuration specifics in this property file and then install the
BEMSserver in an unattended mode.
Installation results are logged in the install log file folder (for example,
<). Where <
alias> is the name of the admin user account.
This silent install feature also can be used to upgrade or repair/modify the server. A password can be specified as part of the command file.
