We are planning to automate Windchill PSI (Solution Installer) to take input from file (XML, txt, csv).
Has anyone tried it?
Appreciate If anyone can provide any inputs on this.
PSI is supported only in GUI mode and you cannot do a scripted install. It is tricky to modify/customize PSI as it runs a lot of scripts.
What is your use case for this? If this for a unix based machine ?
Thanks for your quick response.
We wanted to create script so that we can have uniform Install across all the development VM servers for entire Team.
This is for Windows based Machine.
You can possibly follow the below process
- Install Windchill solution on VM1
- Leverage the VM Cloning capabilities to create full clone of the VM1.
- Change the hostname of the VM clone
- Follow the rehost - change the host name procedure - https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS99222
Fix any issues and Document a repeatable procedure the fist time you do it.
