LC3 silent installation requires the passwords to be encrypted
February 16, 2011 Leave a comment
During the installation of Lotus Connections 3.0, which was being performed silently with a response file, we kept getting an error on the Mobile application install phase.
The error we were getting was:
The token attribute must not be an empty string. /opt/IBM/LotusConnections/replaceAnt_removePassword.xml:388: The token attribute must not be an empty string.
This error was a little confusing as it implied that the password was missing but the response file did have a password specified for Mobile (it was the same for each of the other Lotus Connections applications) thankfully after some serious head scratching it was found that the issue was caused by the fact we had not encrypted the passwords in the response file.
I should have read the instructions more carefully as it clearly tells you to do this in the Lotus Connections wiki (Installing in silent mode).
