How to: Skip the WebCenter Content Post-Installation Configuration page

Ever wondered how to perform the Content Post-Installation Configuration silently. I am referring to the additional configuration step just after completing the WebLogic domain configuration. When you start the Content managed server for the first time, you are required to specify the instance location and several other parameters. After entering these values, the managed servers needs to be restarted.

Post Installation Configuration Page for Content Server

What if there was a way you could start the managed server for the first time and begin using the application? Well there is; just follow the instructions below:

  1. After you have created the domain configuration, with one content managed server in my case, do not start the Content managed server yet.
  2. Create a new file, <DOMAIN_HOME>/ucm/cs/bin/autoinstall.cfg. This is the file that gets created once you submit the Post-Installation Configuration page.
  3. This file contains the configuration entries that you enter on the post install page for your instance. Edit the autoinstall.cfg file to add the following mandatory entries:
    • IDC_Name=<name>
    • IDC_ID=<id>
    • AutoInstallComplete=true
  4. Edit the autoinstall.cfg file to append one or more entries to configure your instance.
    • IntradocDir=<path>
    • VaultDir=<path>/vault
    • WeblayoutDir=<path>/weblayout
  5. Start the Content managed server now and log in.

Refer to the IDOC Script Reference Guide for information on these parameters and to discover other parameters that you can use.

NOTE: Please note that these instructions should be used for development and testing purposes only.
