Installing KNIME Server from generated auto-install.xml

Is there any documentation about how to installing KNIME Server from generated auto-install.xml?

That’s in the installation guide, but a little bit hidden. You need to use:
java -jar knime-server-installer-4.x.y.jar /auto-install.xml



I’ve tried that command line you suggested, and obtained XML parsing errors. Please see attached log.

By the way, I could not find usage specifications for this feature un “KNIME_Server_Installation_Guide_4.2.pdf”.

auto-install.output.txt (4.9 KB)

auto-install.xml (2.8 KB)

Could it be I am using OpenJDK?

Ok… I figured out, here is my recipe:

  • download Oracle JDK 1.8
  • delete original installation folder
  • now run java -jar knime-server-installer-4.x.y.jar /auto-install.xml


Thanks for the update. A couple of points:

  1. You can find the KNIME Server documentation that matches your Server version at: (you must be logged into the forum, and your account needs to be activated).
  2. Am I right in thinking that your installation is now working?
  1. I think I have had all the docs already.
  2. Yes, thanks for the heads up.
