Installing in silent mode on Windows operating systems

Follow these steps to perform an automated installation of the HCL Traveler server.


  1. Locate the HCL Traveler installation application.
  2. Verify the settings in the file, using Table 1. A pre filled sample is provided with the e-assembly.
    Note: defaults the Domino install location to c:\Program Files\hcl\. Previous versions of Domino defaulted to c:\Program Files\ibm\. Make sure to update the location.
  3. Run the following command: TravelerSetup.exe -i SILENT -l locale -f Locale values are provided in Table 2.
  4. Important: To determine if the installation succeeded, you must review the installation logs. First, check DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_1/IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT/traveler/logs/TravelerInstall.log for any warnings or recoverable errors. If this file does not exist or the timestamp is old, then likely a unrecoverable error occurred. All unrecoverable errors are written to InstallError.log in the directory containing the installation application.
    Note: When an installation is a silent installation, then the uninstall operation is silent by default. A silent uninstallation does not require a properties file; it uninstalls all HCL Traveler files from all Domino® partitions in which they were installed.
    Table 1. Installer properties
    Property Choices Description


    true | false

    Set to true if you agree to the terms of the license agreement. If set to false, the application is not installed.


    Fully qualified path

    Path to the HCL Domino® program directory, where the nserver.exe file exists.


    Fully qualified path

    Path to the Domino® data directory, where names.nsf exists.

    Note: If you are using a partitioned Domino® installation, specify additional partitions by incrementing this parameter. For example, for a second partition, specify DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_2=Fully-qualified path.


    Fully qualified path

    Path to the notes.ini file for this instance of the Domino® server.

    Note: If you are using a partitioned Domino® installation, specify additional notes.ini files corresponding to data directories by incrementing this parameter. For example, for a second directory, specify DOMINO_NOTESINI_DIRECTORY_2=Fully-qualified path.


    9.0.1 | 10.0.0 | 10.0.1 | 11.0.0 | 11.0.1 | 12.0.0 | 12.0.1

    This parameter should not be required. The installed Domino version should be auto detected. Set this parameter if for some reason the auto detection is not working as expected and you want to force the HCL Traveler server to use the defined Domino version during install.
    Note: A minimum of Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 8 is required.
    BYPASS_DOMINO_VERSION_CHECK true | false Set to true to bypass the Domino Version lookup. This may be useful if any issues encountered when determining the Domino version, such as application hang or crash.
    Important: If setting this flag, also set INSTALLED_DOMINO_VERSION parameter above.


    Fully qualified path

    The fully qualified URL that HCL Traveler clients use to connect to the HCL Traveler server. This URL is either the address of the server or a proxy server. If this URL is currently unknown, it should be configured on the HCL Traveler tab of the Domino® server document later.

    It is recommended that clients always communicate with the HCL Traveler Server over a secure connection. Consider specifying SSL communications by using a URL that begins with https://. Note that SSL must be setup and configured on the target server before clients can communicate with the HCL Traveler server.


    0 | 1

    When set to 1 during startup, HCL Traveler sets the user home page as the default website for the Domino® server. This location is a useful starting place for users because it provides status information, links to client software, and user management options.

    If the HCL Traveler user home page is set as the default, it can be viewed by pointing any device browser to http://hostname. If the user home page is not set as the default, it can be viewed by pointing any device browser to http://hostname/servlet/traveler. This setting takes effect the first time HCL Traveler is started and can be changed manually at a later time.


    true | false

    This optional property applies only to downgrade installations. If a newer version is already installed, false is the default value and the installation is not allowed. Set to true to override the default and downgrade the HCL Traveler server using silent installation.
