I am planning to automate Teamcenter Server installations,
Which will install all basic feature like Corporate Server, TC2T & BMIDE.
I have two options
1. Install fresh DB & TC with above features, then export DB, zip the volume files, TC_ROOT & TC_DATA.
and in the batch file, we can extract these folders and replace hostnames and import the DB .
2. Create a custom distribution (Silent File).
and in the batch file, I can read hostname of the target m/c and replace in Silent File and can install the TC.
I am more interested in the second option
Have you looked at Deployment Center 2.1? It pretty much is your 2nd option. (Of course, there are still limitations. Review the links below to the videos and download the documentation.)
