Installing the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for AIX in silent mode

You can install the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for AIX in silent mode by using the command-line interface (CLI).

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Download the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for AIX from the SnapCenter Server installation location.
    The default installation path is C:\ProgramData\NetApp\SnapCenter\Package Repository. This path is accessible from the host where the SnapCenter Server is installed.
  2. From the command prompt, navigate to the directory where you downloaded the installation file.
  3. Run ./snapcenter_aix_host_plugin.bsx -i silent -DPORT=8145 -DSERVER_IP=SnapCenter_Server_FQDN -DSERVER_HTTPS_PORT=SnapCenter_Server_Port -DUSER_INSTALL_DIR==/opt/custom_path -DINSTALL_LOG_NAME=SnapCenter_AIX_Host_Plug-in_Install_MANUAL.log -DCHOSEN_FEATURE_LIST=CUSTOM DSPL_USER=install_user
  4. Edit the spl.properties file located at /var/opt/snapcenter/spl/etc/ to add SPL_ENABLED_PLUGINS=SCO,SCU, and then restart the SnapCenter Plug-in Loader service.

After you finish

The installation of the plug-ins package registers the plug-ins on the host and not on the SnapCenter Server. You should register the plug-ins on the SnapCenter Server by adding the host using the SnapCenter GUI or PowerShell cmdlet. After the host is added, the installed plug-ins are automatically discovered.
