Use these steps to create a password response file for use with the
- Create a response file that has a name of the format
- Open the file with a text editor, and cut and paste the sample password file contents, as shown in the example below, modifying as needed.
- If the file is stored on a volume formatted for Windows New Technology File System (NTFS), then modify the security permissions to secure the file.
Example A-4 Sample Password response file for Oracle Grid Infrastructure Installation
Oracle Grid Infrastructure requires passwords for Oracle Automatic Storage Management Configuration Assistant (ASMCA), and for Intelligent Platform Management Interface Configuration Assistant (IPMICA) if you have a baseboard management controller (BMC) card and you want to enable this feature. Also, if you specified an Oracle Home user for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation, you must specify the password as the Windows Service user password. Provide the following response file:
oracle.crs|S_ASMPASSWORD=password oracle.crs|S_OMSPASSWORD=password oracle.crs|S_ASMMONITORPASSWORD=password oracle.crs|S_BMCPASSWORD=password oracle.crs|S_WINSERVICEUSERPASSWORD=password
If you do not have a BMC card, or you do not want to enable Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), then leave the
S_BMCPASSWORD input field blank.
Note:If you are upgrading Oracle ASM 11g Release 1 or earlier releases, then you only need to provide the input field for
Example A-5 Sample Password response file for Oracle Real Application Clusters
Oracle Database configuration requires the SYS, SYSTEM, and DBSNMP passwords for use with Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA). The
S_ASMSNMPPASSWORD response is necessary only if the database is using Oracle ASM for storage. Similarly, the
S_PDBADMINPASSWORD password is necessary only if you create a multitenant container database (CDB) with one or more pluggable databases (PDBs). Also, if you selected to configure Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, then you must provide the password for the Oracle software installation owner for
S_EMADMINPASSWORD, similar to the following example, where the phrase password represents the password string:
oracle.server|S_SYSPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_SYSTEMPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_DBSNMPPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_PDBADMINPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_EMADMINPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_ASMSNMPPASSWORD=password oracle.server|S_WINSERVICEUSERPASSWORD=password
If you do not want to enable Oracle Enterprise Manager for Oracle ASM, then leave those password fields blank.
