F Passing Additional Parameters

This appendix describes the additional parameters you can pass while installing Oracle Management Agent (Management Agent) using the Agent Deployment Wizard and the agentDownload script. In particular, this appendix covers the following:

Additional Parameters Supported by agentDownload Script

If you install a Management Agent using the agentDownload script, then you can pass the following additional parameters while invoking the script.

You can also pass these additional parameters in the Additional Parameters section of the Agent Deployment Wizard if you install a Management Agent using the default source location in the Agent Deployment Wizard.

Note:

On Microsoft Windows, do not hyphenate the arguments. For example, the -b argument when run on Microsoft Windows is b.

Table F-1 Additional Parameters Supported by agentDownload Script

Option Optional/Mandatory Description

-b

Mandatory

Specify the full path to the installation base directory where you want to install the Management Agent.

For example, /scratch/OracleHomes/

-c

Optional

Specify the short names of the nodes of the cluster separated by a comma. Do NOT specify their fully-qualified names. Do NOT include any white spaces between the node names.

-d

Optional

Use this option only if you do not want automatic discovery of targets to be initiated after the installation ends.

-h

Optional

Use this option if you want to view an entire list of options that can be passed with the command. It essentially displays this entire table.

-i

Optional

Specify the full path to the location (leading to the file name) where the oraInst.loc file is available. For example, -i /scratch/oraInst.loc

The oraInst.loc file contains the following entries:

inventory_loc=<location_of_central inventory>

inst_group=<group_of_the_user_that_is_installing_the_agent>

-l

Optional

Use this to indicate that the installation must be done on the local host.

-m

Mandatory

(Only if OMS host is not specified in the response file)

Specify the host name where OMS is running. This is to download the Management Agent software.

For example, software.server.com

-n

Optional

Specify the name of the cluster.

-N

Optional

Use this option only if you DO NOT want to be prompted for Management Agent registration password.

-o

Optional

Specify the full path to the Oracle home of the lower version of the Management Agent that you want to upgrade.

For example, /scratch/OracleHomes/agent10g

-p

Optional

Specify the full path to the location (leading to the file name) where the staticports.ini file is available.

-r

Mandatory

Specify the port number of the OMS from where the Management Agent software needs to be downloaded.

-R

Optional

Use this option to use virtual host name (ORACLE_HOSTNAME) for the installation. If this is being used along with more than one cluster node through "-c" option, then "-l" option also needs to be passed.

-t

Optional

Use this option only when you DO NOT want to start the Management Agent after the installation ends.

-u

Optional

Use this option when you want to upgrade the Management Agent.

-v

Optional

Specify the location to the inventory directory. For example, /scratch/oraInventory

-x

Optional

Use this option to debug output.

-y

Optional

Indicates that you want to decline the security updates.


Additional Parameters Supported by Agent Deployment Wizard for Custom Location

If you install a Management Agent using a custom source location in the Agent Deployment Wizard, then you can pass the following additional parameters in the Additional Parameters section of the Agent Deployment Wizard.

Note:

On Microsoft Windows, do not hyphenate the arguments. For example, the -b argument when run on Microsoft Windows is b.

Table F-2 Additional Parameters Supported by Agent Deployment Wizard

Parameter Description

-clusterware oracle.crs, <crs version>

Specify the version of the installed Oracle Clusterware.

-crslocation <path>

For cluster installs, specify the path to the Oracle home of the clusterware. If you specify this, then it overrides the clusterware information obtained from the central inventory.

-invPtrLoc <full path of oraInst.loc>

Specify the full path to the location (leading to the file name) where the oraInst.loc file is available. For example, -invPtrLoc /scratch/oraInst.loc

The oraInst.loc file contains the following entries:

inventory_loc=<location_of_central inventory>

inst_group=<group_of_the_user_that_is_installing_the_agent>

INVENTORY_LOCATION=<location>

Specify the inventory location. Instead of using the -invPtrLoc parameter to point to a file that has the inventory location details, you can use INVENTORY_LOCATION parameter to directly pass the inventory location. Therefore, this is an alternative to -invPtrLoc.

-jreLoc <location>

Specify the path where the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed.

-logLevel <level>

Specify the filter log messages that have a lesser priority level than <level>. Valid options are: severe, warning, info, config, fine, finer, finest, basic, general, detailed, trace. The use of basic, general, detailed, and trace is deprecated.

-paramFile <location of file>

Specify the location of oraparam.ini file to be used.

-responseFile <Path>

Specify the full path to the response file. The path must lead up to the respone file name.

-sourceLoc <location of products.xml>

Specify the full path to the source location where the software is available.

-cfs

Indicates that the Oracle home specified is on the cluster file system (shared). This is mandatory when '-local' is specified so that the Oracle home can be appropriately registered in the inventory.

-debug

Indicates that you want to get debug information.

-executeSysPrereqs

Indicates that you want to run system prerequisite checks.

-force

Indicates that you want to allow silent mode installation into a non-empty directory.

-help

Indicates that you want to display the usage of all supported options.

-ignoreSysPrereqs

Indicates that you want to Ignore the results of the system prerequisite checks.

-local

Indicates that you want to perform the operation on the local node regardless of the number of cluster nodes you have specified.

-printmemory

Indicates that you want the log debug information for memory usage.

-printtime

Indicates that you want to log debug information for time usage.

-updateNodeList

Indicates that you want to update the node list for this Oracle home in the inventory.
