Preparing Response Files Review this information to prepare response files for use during silent mode or response file mode installations. Editing a Response File Template For Oracle Database Client, response files are located in the $ORACLE_HOME/ response directory. Recording Response Files You can use Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) in interactive mode to record response files, which you can then edit and use to complete silent mode or response file mode installations. Editing a Response File Template For Oracle Database Client, response files are located in the $ORACLE_HOME/ response directory. All response file templates contain comment entries, sample formats, examples, and other useful instructions. Please read these instructions as they help you specify values 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 Client Response File Description client_install.rsp Silent installation of Oracle Database Client netca.rsp Silent configuration of Oracle Net using Oracle Net Configuration Assistant. Caution: When you modify a response file template and save a file for use, the response file may contain plain text passwords. Ownership of the response file should be given to the Oracle software installation owner only, and permissions on the response file should be changed to 600. Oracle strongly recommends that database administrators or other administrators delete or secure 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 your system: $ cp / directory_path /inventory/response/ response_file .rsp local_directory In this example, directory_path is the path of the directory where you have copied the installation binaries.

2. Open the response file in a text editor: $ vi / local_dir / response_file .rsp 3. Follow the instructions in the file to edit it. Note: The installer or configuration assistant fails if you do not correctly configure the response file. Also, ensure that your response file name has the .rsp suffix. 4. Secure the response file by changing the permissions on the file to 600: $ chmod 600 / local_dir / response_file .rsp Ensure that only the Oracle software owner user can view or modify response files or consider deleting them after the installation succeeds.
