About Oracle Grid Infrastructure Software-Only Installations

Manually installing and configuring the software binaries for Oracle Grid Infrastructure.

Oracle recommends that only advanced users perform software-only installations, because this installation method provides no validation of the installation, and this installation option requires manual postinstallation steps to enable the Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server software.

Performing a software-only installation requires the following steps:

  1. Installing the software binaries.

  2. Configuring the software binaries.
