http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp



Save the GZ on a network file share (NFS) that is accessible by the Ubuntu x64 Clients


In our example we are using a share on a Network Attached Storage Device IP Address 192.168.200.13 public folder name is called Apps it uses the same username and password as used in our windows Authentication to access the share


**Please Note - you must run the commands silent with no output or user prompts



Script - Install JDK x64 (NFS Share)

Create the following script using a text editor on Linux or using or with Notepad++ (with EOL Conversion set to Unix) and save it to the shared apps folder on the windows server


In our example we are using the following to access the share:

The NFS share has been given access to all for Read capabilities

path = \\192.168.200.13\apps\Ubuntu\


In our example we are using the following for the ubuntu user password to run as sudo:

Ubuntu user password = 12345678





#!/bin/bash

echo 12345678 | sudo -S apt-get purge openjdk-\*

echo 12345678 | sudo -S mkdir -p /usr/local/java

echo 12345678 | sudo -S smbget -n -q smb://192.168.200.13/apps/Ubuntu/jdk-8u77-linux-x64.gz

echo 12345678 | sudo -S cp -r jdk-8u77-linux-x64.gz /usr/local/java

cd /usr/local/java

echo 12345678 | sudo -S chmod a+x jdk-8u77-linux-x64.gz

echo 12345678 | sudo -S tar zxvf jdk-8u77-linux-x64.gz > /dev/null

echo 12345678 | sudo -S update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_77/bin/java" 1

echo 12345678 | sudo -S update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javaws" "javaws" "/usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_77/bin/javaws" 1

echo 12345678 | sudo -S update-alternatives --set java /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_77/bin/java

echo 12345678 | sudo -S update-alternatives --set javaws /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_77/bin/javaws

cd $home

echo 12345678 | sudo -S rm -f jdk-8u77-linux-x64.gz
