just another day at my work, my boss ask me to install a database software 11.2.0.2.
i don’t have the privilege of using GUI installer since the server reside in the other side of the world.
so decided to use silent install.

unlike with other version of oracle the 11.2.0.2 installer is different.
for 10.2

$ runInstaller -silent                                 \
      -responseFile $DISTRIB/response/enterprise.rsp   \
       ORACLE_HOME=/opt/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1 \
       ORACLE_HOME_NAME=ORADB102_Home10                 \
       n_configurationOption=3

for 11.1

$ runInstaller -silent                                 \
      -responseFile $DISTRIB/response/enterprise.rsp   \
       FROM_LOCATION=$DISTRIB/stage/products.xml       \
       ORACLE_BASE=/opt/app/oracle                     \
       ORACLE_HOME=/opt/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_1 \
       ORACLE_HOME_NAME=ORADB111_Home1                 \
       n_configurationOption=3

but for 11.2.02

./runInstaller -silent \
-ignoreSysPrereqs \
-ignorePrereq \
-responseFile /backup/software/11gR2/database/response/db_install.rsp \
ORACLE_BASE=/opt/app/oracle \
ORACLE_HOME=/opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.2/db_1 \
ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OraDbHome11202 \
oracle.install.option=INSTALL_DB_SWONLY \
oracle.install.db.InstallEdition=EE \
oracle.install.db.DBA_GROUP=dba \
oracle.install.db.OPER_GROUP=dba \
DECLINE_SECURITY_UPDATES=true \
'-ignoreInternalDriverError'

the installation….

lnxora01:pexb $ ./runInstaller -silent \
> -ignoreSysPrereqs \
> -ignorePrereq \
> 
> ORACLE_BASE=/opt/app/oracle \
> 
> ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OraDbHome11202 \
> oracle.install.option=INSTALL_DB_SWONLY \
> oracle.install.db.InstallEdition=EE \
> oracle.install.db.DBA_GROUP=dba \

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2012-01-25_07-08-21AM. Please wait ...lnxora01:pexb $

the warning below shows up since my User home and ORACLE_BASE is same and can be ignored.

[WARNING] [INS-32008] Oracle base location cant be same as the user home directory.
   CAUSE: The specified Oracle base is same as the user home directory.
   ACTION: Provide an Oracle base location other than the user home directory.

You can find the log of this install session at:

/opt/app/oraInventory/logs/installActions2012-01-25_07-08-21AM.log

if you tailed the alert log…

INFO: Successfully executed the flow in SILENT mode

INFO: Exit Status is 0

now it’s time to execute the root.sh. for me need to wait until our UNIX admin arrives.

 
As a root user, execute the following script(s):
        1. /opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0.2/db_1/root.sh

Successfully Setup Software.

thanks!
