Silent install IBM Install Manager with RTC and Compuware plugins


Benoit Ebner (82) | asked Aug 28 '15, 4:57 a.m.
Hi everybody,

   We begin the installation of RTC in my company. We already use Compuware Eclipse plugins (Xpediter, File-AID...).
   We try several method to integrate RTC and the Compuware plugins. The only way I found to produce a good mix without problem is a installation of RTC through Install Manager with the Compuware plugins in it.

   But, I have a question about the deployment of this solution on all our developer PC. I don't found a "silent install" for the RTC + plugins. I try the dropins, the copy/paste of the directory, nothing work.

  Did Install Manager have the possibility to create new package or can upgrade RTC with other plugins in it?

Thanks for the answer!!

We try many way (Compuware Workbench + RTC plugin, eclipse + both plugin, etc etc).

We can made it working by :
installation IBM Install Manager
installation of RTC with Installation Manage
launch RTC and add the p2 repo of the Compuware tool
install theses

all working fine

You can silent install RTC Eclipse client with Installation Manager, that's not a problem. The challenge is to add the Compuware p2 plugin after that. You may consider using the "p2 director" tool to do this, see Chris's answer in the below post and other references.
