You can use the following Command Line Interface commands to run the installation script (nwsetup-tui) without getting prompted for inputs. This enables you to automate the installation of a host by supplying response to the scripts prompts through the command line.
- After you have created a base image on the host, log in to the host with the root credentials.
Submit the nwsetup-tui script with the --slient command and the arguments that you want to apply.
The following command string is an example of how you would install a basic NW Server host.
