The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

I'm trying to do a silent install of the Developer Edition, 17.0.0.1358, under linux, but since the Developer Edition no longer requires a registration key, I'm struggling with how to specify the -regkey parameter

The command:

sudo setup -silent -I_accept_the_license_agreement -type create
produces
A registration key must be provided to use the silent install. Please specify
a valid registration key and try again.
Cleaning up ...
and the command:
sudo setup -silent -I_accept_the_license_agreement -type create -regkey ''
produces:
The registration key provided is invalid. Please verify that you have entered
the key correctly and try again.
Cleaning up ...
Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, the Linux installer has a bug which prevents silent installs of the Developer Edition. There is no work around. This bug will be fixed in the next SP.
