Enterprise Console Silent Installation Error: This text field must not be left empty

I'm doing a silent upgrade on my Enterprise Console from 20.3 to 20.11.  Below is the command I am trying to get working.  It keeps failing about an empty text file, as shown below in red.

 

./platform-setup-x64-linux-20.11.3.23827.sh -q -varfile /opt/AppD/installer/.install4j/response.varfile
Unpacking JRE ...
Preparing JRE ...
Starting Installer ...
The installation directory has been set to /opt/AppD/installer.
Verifying if the libaio package is installed. /opt/AppD/installer/checkLibaio.sh
Verifying if the libnuma package is installed. /opt/AppD/installer/checkLibnuma.sh
Verifying the libc version. /opt/AppD/installer/checkLibc.sh
Verifying if the zoneinfo directory exists. if not, check tzdata package
Verifying if the libncurses5 package is installed. /opt/AppD/installer/checkNcurses.sh
Verifying if curl is installed. /opt/AppD/installer/detect_os_packages.sh
This text field must not be left empty.

 

Below is my response file:

cat /opt/AppD/installer/.install4j/response.varfile
# install4j response file for AppDynamics Enterprise Console 20.3.1-21882
platformAdmin.databasePort=3377

platformAdmin.databaseRootPassword=<Password I removed for this discussion>

Any help?

Re: Enterprise Console Silent Installation Error: This text field must not be left empty

AppDynamics support did come back with a solution.  I missed the following line in the response file:

 

platformAdmin.databasePassword=<your password>

 

Once I added that with the correct password the upgrade worked without fail.
