    Offline Activation and Server veryquiet Install mode

    Michel Roberge

      Hi all,


      I was wondering, do you know if it is possible to do offline activation through command-line? If yes, how?


      My challenge is when I do a /veryquiet installation, if the server must be activated offline, I would like to generate the .TLQ file from command line. Is that possible?


      Also, anyone attempted to build a script to run a complete working silent installation? I saw the thread there: Tableau server silent installation


      I am trying it, seems to work well (at least for now), unless I'm offline. Of course, activating a license fails. But I would like to know if anyone has already a working script?


      Currently, I do the following (simplified for readability):


      set trusted hosts variable (we use trusted authentication)

      set install dir

      install my-oem.exe /dir="install dir" /veryquiet

      stop server

      restore backup (we have a default admin user we want to use in initial configuration)

      customization (logo, name, etc)

      set trusted hosts

      tabinstallck -activate mykey <-- How can I handle this if this fails?

          No idea but I do like the idea of a silent install.  Would be cool for it to run unattended for one (because it takes so long now) and just spit out a status & beep when done e.g. Install completed with the following errors or There were no errors, something like that.

            Interesting enough, I get a "Setup failed" when I run in very silent mode.


            When I look at the log, I get the following:


            2016-02-22 12:33:48.573 -0500_DEBUG_10.235.246.188:PC117_:_pid=92972_0x66da85__user=__request=__ Component::InitError: Unable to init component Components::Vizportal (5 of 17): MultiCommand::ReportableError: Command 'E:/STARLIMS/AA/Server/9.2/bin/tabmigrate.exe db:migrate "WG_SERVICE=tabsvc" RAILS_ENV=production "INSTALL=true"' failed with code 1, result was (in E:/STARLIMS/AA/Server/9.2/bin)

            rake aborted!

            No migration with version number 9



            (See full trace by running task with --trace)

            <script>:3:in `(root)'


            But then, when I activate the licenses and import the backup, everything seems to work just fine. Anyone ever saw something like that?
