5. Locate the IBM FileNet P8 Application Engine 4.0.2 installation software
package, and copy the appropriate AE_silent_input.txt file to a local directory.

6. Follow the instructions in the silent input file to edit the file to reflect the
appropriate responses for your installation. Use the values in your worksheet.

Important: If you are modifying the silent input file to perform an upgrade
from Application Engine 3.5 to Application Engine 4.0.2 you must modify all
instances of AE_install_path in the script as follows:

Windows

Change ..\FileNet\AE to ..\FileNet

Change ..\\Filenet\\AE to ..\\FileNet

Note: In high availability environments, specify the location to hold the
Application Engine shared configuration data. For Content Engine
configuration, make sure to specify the proper Content Engine URLs following
the format and examples shown in “Content Engine in an application server
cluster by using EJB transport” on page 88.

7. From a command prompt, navigate to and run the installer.

Windows
P8AE-4.0.2.0-Win.exe -options
path_to_edited_input_file\AE_silent_input.txt -silent

8. View the app_engine_install_log_4_0_2.txt file, located in
AE_install_path/AE/Logs.
Verify that no errors or failures were logged. Look for the ERROR designation
at the start of a line. Correct any errors before you proceed.

9. In highly available environments, you need to synchronize the
UTCryptoKeyFile.properties file across your Application Engine nodes.
Each participating Application Engine server must use the same encryption key
file. Copy the UTCryptoKeyFile.properties file installed on the first Application
Engine server in your farm to all the other servers in your farm.
For information, see the FileNet P8 Developer Help topic Developing IBM
FileNet applications > Workplace Development > Workplace Customization
Guide > User Tokens > Configuring Applications to Use Tokens.
