I need to package the Oracle 10g client into .msi. I've done some reading and I know people sugguest using the response file and put in silent switches. Unfortunately the company I am working for has business (standardisation policies) and technical (using Zenworks Configuration Management) requirements for having .msi.

What is the best method for packaging it? Just take a snapshot and hope for the best?

Commiserations on two fronts: having to break the Oracle install AND using ZCM!

Assuming that you've discounted deploying the Instant Client (which would be absolutely fine for the majority of users), I can reassure you by saying that we re-packaged Oracle 7x and 8x installs as MSIs some years ago and we never encountered problems at any time.

This is NOT a no brainer. Oracle is not a standard app to package. I've done alot of searching and the link timmsie posted reflects the complexity of this if you need to package it into an MSI.

This is for our administrators so it needs to have most components on it. Will see how I go..
