This utility installs and configures RICOH InfoPrint Manager software onto local or remote Linux systems. InfoPrint Manager Installer installs the InfoPrint Manager server, InfoPrint Manager clients are installed using rpm commands against desired packages. For more details about installing Linux clients, see RICOH InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Getting Started.

Note: You can install the InfoPrint Manager server or the InfoPrint Manager Linux client in any of these languages:
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Spanish
If the InfoPrint Manager Linux client and server do not use the same language, the InfoPrint Manager server must run in English.


The utility uses these flags:

-h | - -help
Displays the help for the utility.
-a <response file> | - -response-file <response file> | - -response-file=<response file>
Specifies a response file for use in an unattended installation. By default, unattended installations do not display any Installer screens. Furthermore, when the -a flag is used, the default mount point is /ip_remote. All unattended installations must be performed using an InfoPrint Manager Software Server, not the InfoPrint Manager for Linux DVD-ROMs. See the Network Installation Setup section below for more information on how to set up and use a InfoPrint Manager Software Server.
-c <0|1> | - -color=<0|1> | - -color <0|1>
Enables or disables coloring the default answer option when using the interactive installer. The default value is 1.
-i | - -ipin-only
Creates ipin_response file and skips installation of InfoPrint Manager when using the interactive installer.
-m | - -multi-system
Performs unattended installations on one or more remote systems. To use this flag, you must have first created an InfoPrint Manager Software Server on the local machine. For more information on how to set up an InfoPrint Manager Software Server, see the Network Installation Setup section below. After the Software Server is in place, you must copy response files to its /ip_remote/auto subdirectory to define the installations you wish to perform. The default mount point for unattended installations is /ip_remote. The -m flag causes the defined remote installations to be performed serially, that is the installation on the second system begins only after the installation on the first system is completed.
-s <mount point> | - -mount-point <mount point> | - -mount-point=<mount point>
Specifies a non-default InfoPrint Manager Software Server mount point. The default mount point for all unattended installations is /ip_remote.
-r | -R | - -refresh
Reinstalls InfoPrint Manager.
-u | - -uninstall
Uninstalls InfoPrint Manager without erasing objects.
- -uninstall-and-clean
Uninstalls InfoPrint Manager including erasing of objects.
-v | - -ha-failover
Installs InfoPrint Manager on the High Availability Failover server. This action prevents an attempt to mount the /var file systems and does not start the InfoPrint Manager server.
-v | - -ha-primary
Sets up the High Availability primary server and ensures that all the appropriate file systems are available.
