Using the Silent Installer

This topic provides information on how to:

  • Perform a fresh installation of Paragon Insights releases 4.0.0, 4.1.0, 4.2.0, or 4.3.0 by using the silent installer.

  • Seamlessly upgrade Paragon Insights from an earlier 4.X release to a later release.


    If you are currently using Paragon Insights with Docker Compose-based installation, then you must perform a fresh installation of Release 4.X. If you are using Paragon Insights with Kubernetes-based installation, follow the instructions provided in the Upgrading Paragon Insights Release 3.X with Kubernetes-based Installation to Release 4.X topic.

Paragon Insights (formerly HealthBot) provides a silent installer as a convenient way to streamline the installation process without requiring user intervention.

To use the silent installer, you can use the default configuration file, included in the downloaded .deb or .rpm package, or create your own custom configuration. The default configuration file, healthbot.conf, is located on the Paragon Insights server in the /var/local/healthbot/ after the interactive installation is complete.

The following is an example configuration file for single-node installations.

The following is an example configuration file for multinode installations.

Customizing the configuration file is self-explanatory. You can uncomment or edit the necessary lines. For example, to change from a single-node installation to a multinode installation, uncomment and edit the following lines from:

How to Perform a Silent Installation

  1. Follow the steps for installing the Paragon Insights package as described in Using the Interactive Installers to Install or Upgrade to Paragon Insights Release 4.X until you reach the setup step.
  2. Edit your custom configuration file and change the setting values as needed. You can use the file /var/local/healthbot/healthbot.conf as a starting point.
  3. Run the silent installer using the following command:

    For example:


    The sudo healthbot setup -c command prompts you for user credentials. If you do not want to be prompted, add the credential information to your custom configuration file. For example:

    username: <username> password: <password>

    Any errors that occur during the installation are displayed in the terminal window.
