You can create a response file when you install a Performance Center system fresh. This is accomplished in the same manner as creating one for the Data Aggregator and Data Collector installs which is by using a -r argument when running the installer .bin file.


Example response file for a Performance Center system (yours may differ):

# Tue Apr 29 10:38:49 EDT 2014
# Replay feature output
# ---------------------
# This file was built by the Replay feature of InstallAnywhere.
# It contains variables that were set by Panels, Consoles or Custom Code.
#Choose Install Folder
#Set the maximum memory allocation for CA Performance Center services.
#Select a Location for the MySQL Data Directory
#Select a Location for the MySQL Temp Directory

Note: The java maximum memory values are for the Performance Center, Device Manager and Event M anager services respectively.

For items where no value or path was specified, the default values will be used.

Example install command on a Performance Center system:

./CAPerfCenterSetup.bin -r is the name of the response file to create. The file can be named as desired.

Then when you do a fresh install using a response file, use the following syntax:

./CAPerfCenterSetup.bin -i silent -f <response file name> 

Note: This same syntax is used to install the DA and DC in silent mode using a response file.

The only thing which will differ in Performance Center is the name of the installer .bin file.

Be sure to include the whole path to the response file if it isn't in the current directory.
