Modifying the UMA SETUP.ISS File Manually


Modifying the UMA SETUP.ISS File Manually

The following provides a description of each acceptable value for the parameters that can be modified in the SETUP.ISS file. Modify only the parameters that are listed in the following table. Do not modify any other parameters. Use a text editor such as Notepad to modify the file. Save the file as SETUP.ISS. Then, move the file to the same folder where the UMA installation files reside, and proceed with 'Performing a Silent Installation'.

Note: A sample SETUP.ISS file with the default settings can be found at 'Sample SETUP.ISS file'
