RSA Authentication Agent for Windows




To install the RSA Authentication Agent for Windows in silent mode, drop to the command line and use the following command:




msiexec /i "RSA Authentication Agent x64.msi" /qn /l*v install.log REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus REBOOT=ReallySuppress

 

RSA Authentication Agent for PAM on Red Hat



  1. Connect to the machine on which you wish to install the RSA Authentication Agent for PAM.
  2. Place the installation files in a directory on the device and extract the files.
  3. Navigate to the installation directory.
  4. Create a configuration file by issuing the following command


touch installoptions.conf


  1. Edit the file and add the following four lines:



Accept 

y


These entries are answers to the following prompted questions:


  • Continue silent installation? (y)
  • Accept license terms and conditions? (Accept)
  • Upgrade/overwrite existing installation? (y/n)
  • Override existing policy? (y/n)

  1. Save and close installoptions.conf.
  2. Run the install:


./install_pam.sh -s < installoptions.conf

y
