1.Prepare a response file.2.Run the installer in silent or response file mode.3.Run the root scripts as prompted by Oracle Universal Installer.4.If you completed a software-only installation, then run Net Configuration Assistantand Oracle DBCA in silent or response file mode to create the database listenerand an Oracle Database instance respectively.Appendix AReasons for Using Silent Mode or Response File ModeA-2
Preparing Response FilesReview this information to prepare response files for use during silent mode orresponse file mode installations.•Editing a Response File TemplateFor Oracle Database Client, response files are located in the $ORACLE_HOME/responsedirectory.•Recording Response FilesYou can use Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) in interactive mode to recordresponse files, which you can then edit and use to complete silent mode orresponse file mode installations.Editing a Response File TemplateFor Oracle Database Client, response files are located in the $ORACLE_HOME/responsedirectory.All response file templates contain comment entries, sample formats, examples, andother useful instructions. Please read these instructions as they help you specifyvalues for the variables listed in the response files and customize your installation.The following table lists the response files provided with this software:Table A-1 Response Files for Oracle Database ClientResponse FileDescriptionclient_install.rspSilent installation of Oracle Database Clientnetca.rspSilent configuration of Oracle Net using Oracle Net ConfigurationAssistant.Caution:When you modify a response file template and save a file for use, theresponse file may contain plain text passwords. Ownership of the responsefile should be given to the Oracle software installation owner only, andpermissions on the response file should be changed to 600. Oracle stronglyrecommends that database administrators or other administrators delete orsecure response files when they are not in use.To copy and modify a response file:1.Copy the response file from the response file directory to a directory on yoursystem:$ cp /directory_path/inventory/response/response_file.rsp local_directoryIn this example, directory_pathis the path of the directory where you havecopied the installation binaries.Appendix APreparing Response FilesA-3
2.Open the response file in a text editor:$ vi /local_dir/response_file.rsp3.Follow the instructions in the file to edit it.Note:The installer or configuration assistant fails if you do not correctlyconfigure the response file. Also, ensure that your response file namehas the .rspsuffix.4.Secure the response file by changing the permissions on the file to 600:$ chmod 600 /local_dir/response_file.rspEnsure that only the Oracle software owner user can view or modify response filesor consider deleting them after the installation succeeds.
