How can I run a silent install of Oracle 9 client without the users seeing the Install? I will be deploying it through SMS.

Thanks for the help in advance.

You can try to run the Oracle installer with:

setup.exe -silent -responsefile <response file name>


...as documented in the Installations Guide.

Best regards.

always better to read some documentation.

There will be a folder named response in ur installation CD. Open that folder and copy the respective demo response file on your system and edit it accordingly.

ok, I tried copying the script file to the root of the users C drive, then ran this setup.exe -silent -responsefile c:\clientruntime.rsc and it looks like setup runs for about 15 seconds, then nothing else happens... am I doing something wrong with my commandline?

Did you edit the responsefile as required ?

Did you get any error during installation ?

I got no errors and I just used the default response file that it had... All I need is just the oracle Client installed.

Something else you can try is to record your own response file:

setup.exe -record -destinationFile <response_file_name>

Hi smokin5s,

Back with the experiment ,

Did you edit the response file after copying it from the CD ?

and your command i just noticed
Quote:

I tried copying the script file to the root of the users C drive, then ran this setup.exe -silent -responsefile c:\clientruntime.rsc


The extension is .rsp not .rsc that you specified.

Now lets discuss it step by step --

1. Copy the response file from the CD. ( I copied clientcustom.rsp file at c:\oracle)

2. Edit the copied response file as per your requirement .

3. Run the command , i used
 C:\Oracle\CD1>setup.exe -silent -responsefile "c:\oracle\clientcustom.rsp" 


and it worked fine and client is installed. I have attached my response file for your reference .

And one more thing nothing will be shown to you because you are doing a silent install.
On my machine it took around half hour to install (WinXP with 256 RAM) . It might vary on your box.
So try again , good luck .

regards,
tarun

I tried using what you have listed, but nothing will install... I can manually install it, but no other way... I can even create the response file... any ideas?

Anyone know why using a second .rsp file in line with the first only shows a empty summary screen?

I have made a runtime .rsp my self which works perfectly.
I then made a .rsp after it for installing Windows Interfaces module.
When the setp.exe is used with runtime.rsp it install just fine. however, the odbc.rsp is called after it's done. runtime.rsp has lines to call this odbc.rsp though.
Trying to run setup.exe with the odbc.rsp after having done the runtime.rsp results in the summary screen with no selections made.

I've been breaking my had over this, but don't understand why...

Does anyone know an answer to this one?

Hi,

2 things,

which version is it?

9.2.0.1 has some issue with recording installations, just google it to see problems.

The other thing is to make sure you copy everything to your local pc before you try to do the silent install (or on a network share) as direct from the CD will fail in some situations.

Here is a example response file.

11g? I wish. We only abandoned 8i last year but are still heavily stuck to 9.2.

The only thing changed from 2 yars back is that I am no longer a Servicedesk employee but a Sys Admin now...

@bensoules: I already knew all those problems with 9.2.0.1, the version we run, 2 years ago.

Atm I use a Altiris job to mount the share on a drive letter and use the runtime installation. After that I have to manually install the Windows Interfaces module (ODBC driver).
I tried recording the two together, but it wouldn't work ofcourse.
After a few weeks of trying I gave up. The java crap installer is hopeless. So is Oracle for having no clue how their own installers works.

whoops, just saw I ain't the OP here. My bad...[/edit]

I am trying to set up a response file for a silent install of the Oracle 9i Client (9.2.0.1). The Runtime or Admin options work fine but the Custom option installs only the basic Client and none of the specified dependent products.
I have tried changing file paths etc. but nothing seems to help ?
Is there a problem with the 9.2.0.1 oui version which might cause this ? Are there patches or a later version of the installer available which I could use ?
I would be grateful if anyone can help as I am rapidly running out of ideas ?
