This chapter guides you through the non-interactive installation of Oracle9i Application Server. The topics include:
You can perform a non-interactive installation of Oracle9i Application Server by supplying the Oracle Universal Installer with a response file. The installer uses the variables and values contained in this text file to provide answers to some or all of the installer user prompts. If you include responses for all of the installer prompts in the response file, then you can run a "silent" installation that displays no graphical output.
For a complete list of requirements, refer to Chapter 1, "Requirements".
There are multiple Oracle Universal Installer response files depending on your installation type. These files are included on the Oracle9i Application Server, Release 1 (v126.96.36.199.2) CD-ROM. You will need to edit the response file to suit your installation option. The following sections describe configuring the response files for your installation type:
To use a response file, copy the response file from the Oracle9i Application Server CD-ROM to a drive mounted on your system. For example:
Edit the response file you want to use with any text editor to include information specific to your system. Each file contains instructions for properly configuring the response file.Table 7-1 lists the response files included on the Oracle9i Application Server CD-ROM.

To make the installer use the response file at install time, follow the same steps to launch the installer, but specify the location of the response file that you wish to use as a parameter when starting the installer. To make a configuration assistant use a response file, invoke it at the command line using the same parameters.
To perform a completely silent installation or configuration session, use the

The following steps invoke the Oracle9iAS Database Cache Configuration Assistant and complete the configuration silently.
Launch the following from the Oracle home:

Note the following:
The success or failure of the installation is logged in the
silentInstall.log file. The log files are created in the
oraInventory directory during installation. For more information, refer to "oraInventory Directory".
Values for variables that are of the wrong context, format, or type are treated as if no value were specified. Variables which are outside any section are ignored.
A non-interactive installation fails if no response file is specified, or if you attempt a silent installation with an incorrect or incomplete response file. If you attempt a silent installation and the installer encounters an error, such as insufficient disk space, then the installation fails. The results of your non-interactive installation is recorded in the installation session log file
.For more information, refer to "oraInventory Directory".
The installer or configuration assistant performs calculation and validation of the response file at runtime. Failure of the validation process ends the installation or configuration.
