How to see the installation flags of BlueStripe Collector on Linux, Solaris and AIX

To see a list of the installation flags run the installation program with the -help flag:

InstallBlueStripeCollector-AIX.bin -help
InstallBlueStripeCollector-Linux.bin -help
InstallBlueStripeCollector-Solaris.bin -help

All arguments are case-sensitive.

On Linux, Solaris, and AIX, the installation program accepts the command line options in the following table. The silent flag must be specified for a completely uninterrupted installation void of prompts.Core Collector Options
FlagPossible ValuesDescriptionDefault Value
-sSilent flag required for silent installations. It implicitly means agreement to the EULA, and requires no user prompts
--upgradeUpgrades and preserves all configuration and data files from the current installation. Reinstalls into the same location.
--replace
--config=myconfigfileModify the default settings in BlueStripeCollector.properties after installation using the values inmyconfigfile.
For example, if a file named myprops.txt contained the line protocol.mssql.trigger = remote_port==1061, use the command line argument -config=<full-path>/myprops.txt to specify that the MS SQL server is listening to port 1061.
The full path to the file must be given.
--base-dir=Base Installation directory to use./
--cert=customcert.certFilename to a custom certificate to be installed. File extension must be .cer

Flag and value can be specified multiple times for multiple custom certificates

The full path to the file must be given.
--cacert=ca_certs.pemOptional if /Cert specified. File should be a concatenation of all required CA certs into a file with the file extension of .pem.

The full path to the file must be given.
--defaultcertInstall the default BlueStripe self-signed certificate.

Required if no custom cert is specified, but optional otherwise
--checkChecks permissions and operating system but does not install the Collector.
If the -s (silent) flag is not given, the user will be prompted to accept the EULA before continuing even if all the other configuration options are defined on the command line.Transaction Plugin OptionsSince the Windows Collector requires a reboot to active, the Web Server is restarted as part of the reboot.

During an upgrade of the collector, any web/app servers with the Transaction Plugin installed will be gracefully restarted regardless of which mode is selected. This is necessary in order to completely shutdown the Collector and to ensure a successful upgrade.Collector Initiated ConnectionsBy default, after a BlueStripe Collector is installed, the FactFinder Management Server uses UDP port 7561 to discover it and TCP port 7561 to initiate a connection to it.

While automatic Collector discovery is recommended, it is also possible to turn off Collector discovery and have the Collector contact the Management Server to establish a connection using the command line options in the following table (Refer to Configuring Collectors to Initiate Connection for details.):
FlagOptionsDescriptionDefault Option
--FFHostname
Management Server's

IP addresses or hostnames
A comma separated list of IPv4 address/port combinations, computer names, or fully qualified DNS names of FactFinder Management Server(s) to initiate connections to.
Only necessary if FactFinder can't use the discovery process to connect to it or if you want to configure it to initiate connections to FactFinder instances through firewalls, for example.
--FFPort=Management Server's

port
To be used with /FFHostname above to specify which port to use by default when initiating a connection with FactFinder servers. If a specific port is listed in the list of hosts in the --FFHostname parameter above, it will override the default value listed here for that machine only.7560
Silent Uninstall on LinuxUninstalling the Collector on Linux is performed by executing the following command as root:

rpm -e bluestripe-collector

This command is already non-interactive, so it can be used for a silent uninstall.Silent Uninstall on SolarisUninstalling in silent mode on Solaris is performed by executing the following command as root:

pkgrm -na /etc/bluestripe-collector/bluestripe-pkgadmin BSSWcollSilent Uninstall on AIXTo uninstall the Collector on AIX:

installp -u bluestripe.collector

If a non-default install location was used, the uninstall command will be

installp_r -R base-dir -u bluestripe.collector
