Installing on Remote Computers Through Remote Access Software

If you want to install and run Oracle Database on a remote computer (that is, the remote computer has the hard drive and runs Oracle Database components), but you do not have physical access to the computer, you still can perform the installation on the remote computer if it is running remote access software such as VNC or Symantec pcAnywhere.

You also need the remote access software running on your local computer.

You can install Oracle Database on the remote computer in one of two ways:

  • If you have copied the contents of the Oracle Database DVD to a hard drive, you can install the software from the hard drive.

  • You can insert the DVD into a drive on your local computer, and install the software from the DVD.
