no, use the shell installer if you want to use a different path. the shell installer is in the optional zip.
Thanks for the prompt reply. I thought NSH installers were being deprecated in favour of the Native installers, that's why we're moving.
I must have misunderstood what I was reading in the manuals. Anyway, searching that out again, I found this is the BSA 8.5 documentation :
A custom install path is not retained during an upgrade operation using a native installer. By default, the
agent is upgraded to /opt/bmc/bladelogic on a non-windows platform.
If you want to retain a custom path during an upgrade on a non-windows platform, specify the path
within the installation command using one of the following methods:
Linux : With RPM, append the --prefix option to the command.
For example, rpm -ivh BladeLogic_RSCD_Agent-8_5-8.5.00.385-rhas4.0-x86_64.rpm
Solaris: In the response file (/var/sadm/install/admin/default), update the basedir parameter with
the custom path value (basedir=default).
AIX: Use the install_r command.
For example, install_r -ac -d bladelogic.nsh.rte-8.3.00-AIX5_1.bff
- bladelogic.nsh –R /usr/nsh
So overriding the default path is available during an upgrade via the native installers.
afaik that does not work because the bff was not built w/ the options needed to support the relocation. and was removed from the docs but apparently not the < 8.6 stuff.
