Trying to configure Oracle11g to deploy through the KACE appliance. I have it working on a test PC but have a problem calling the response file once I zip it upload to the KACE server.

command line reads: -

setup.exe -nowait -noconsole -force -waitforcompletion -silent -responseFile "custom.rsp"

Custom.rsp is at the root of the ZIP archive which also contains the setup.exe. Running it locally and pointing directly to the custom.rsp file works fine but not sure how to call from within the ZIP. Any ideas?

First, it might have been an idea to post in the KACE forum and second, I always - ALWAYS - use explicit paths for deploying stuff:setup.exe -nowait -noconsole -force -waitforcompletion -silent -responseFile "[some_path_or_other]\custom.rsp"

oracle setup always have problems with paths.
apart from setting it explicit as vbscab wrote, open the response file and check if it contains any paths.

i never used KACE so could you tell me how exactly he path looks when a setup is run?
does the zip file get extracted to the computer or to a share in advance?
does the path contain whitespace or other special chars?

Zip file is extracted to the KACE folder, path: c:\program files\kace\kbox\downloads\

I found that each distribution has a unique 2-4 digit number when it's copied down to the PC, the number is unique between the distributions on KACE but same for each PC it is downloaded to. Using this info i could use the full path for the response file and so far it seems to work.

glad it woks now. btw you could also use relative paths, at least in the response file.
maybe there is also a way to make KACE expand that path before executing it so oracle understands it.
