'-r' option should be supported to create properties file for silent mode installation

    In Advanced Auth 8.0. Below is from installation instructions:
    ---------------
    Important! Do not use "-r" option with the installer executable to generate a response file to be used for silent installation. Only the default properties file that comes with initial installation should be used.
    ---------------

    It would be great if the -r option is supported to generate the properties file, instead of doing a complete installation initially.


    If you run the installer using the “-?” flag, it gives following instructions:
    --------------
    Usage: CA-StrongAuthentication-8.0-Linux-Installer [-f <path_to_installer_proper
    ties_file> | -options]
                (to execute the installer)

    where options include:
        -?
                show this help text
        -i [swing | console | silent]
                specify the user interface mode for the installer
        -D<name>=<value>
                specify installer properties
        -r <path_to_generate_response_file>
                Generates response file.
    The options field may also include the following in case of uninstaller
    if it is enabled for Maintenance Mode
        -add <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
                Add Specified Features
        -remove <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
                Remove Specified Features
        -repair
                Repair Installation
        -uninstall
                Uninstall
