You need to populate the Condition column in the Component table for the component in question.

Thought you were talking about an MSI.

Have a look at:

get your hands on the response file that comes with the media, and edit it manually. generating the rsp files by recording is buggy, and prone to errors.

O......Thanks, after i search the media, it only got the rsp file like this.
But it's not for components installation.

Anyone can post their RSP file to here for me to reference?
Thanks a lot.




It is the file i can find in the media.

THANKS~

But it is for typical install only.
My goal is to custom install & install 3 components only from it.

I only know the custom install is (win32.install_option_content="Custom")
But i don't know the syntax to install components after that......

Ok, try this out :

Using the response file you originally recorded, use the following command line and see if that works for you :

orainst /silent /prd <full path to NT.PRD> /install w32grun60,w32frun60,w32plus80 /rspsrc <Full Path to Your rsp file>

The above command will (hopefully) select only the three components you require from the NT.PRD file (I am assuming you are deploying on NT/W2000/XP platform here).

Thanks. It works great! [:)]

Now, i faced another issue.
After the installation, i tried to apply oracle patches with those script. But it doesn't works.
It will call the installer but quit automatically very shortly.

My syntax like this
\\SERVER\ORAINST.EXE /silent /prd c:\Nt2.prd /install w32grun60,w32frun60 /rspsrc c:\patch.rsp

Any ideas? Thanks.

Have you checked to see if a silent installation log file was created following the attempt to apply the patch(es) silently ?

The default location for this is C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs, but it may vary depending on where your inventory folder is located.

Looking at your command line, it looks like you used a separate response file for the patch, which is, I think, the correct approach. If however, you didn't generate a new response file specifically for the patches, then I would recommend you try that.

Also, can I ask whether the patches came with their own .PRD files, or did you use the original one that came with the base installation ?

1. No log file to be created. What is the name for me to search?

2. The answer file for the patches is generate by "orainst /rspdest d:\tmp\patch.rsp".

Which is....
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
win32.installation_settings_content=list("Company","DEFAULT_HOME","C:\orant","English")
win32.install_option_content="Custom"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Yes. The PRD file come from the patches. So i rename it to Nt2.prd. And i can see that w32grun60,w32frun60 is include in the PRD file.

Please suggest. Many Thanks.

The log file (if it exists) should be name silentInstall.log (sorry, should have made that clearer in my earlier reply).

Other things you might want to check out (if you haven't already) :

1) Try a reboot before attempting to install the patch(es).

2) If multiple Oracle Homes are present on the machine, make sure that the current Oracle Home is set to the same home as you installed the main application into before trying to apply the patch(es).

You can check this out if you have a shortcut for Home Selector anywhere on the system, or alternatively, have a look at the registry entries HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\ORACLE_HOME and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\ORACLE_HOME_NAME which should tell you what the currently active ORACLE_HOME is.

3) Using Task Manager, check to see whether any Oracle processes are running before you attempt the patch and, if they are, try terminating them first.

4) Try running orainst from the local machine rather than from a server share - you may need to copy down orainst.exe to the local machine if it doesn't already exist there.

Thanks your information. [;)]

I'm still cannot find silentInstall.log or C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs folder

1) Tried reboot, same result.

2) The home directory is "C:\orant", and name is "DEFAULT_HOME", my report.rsp & patch.rsp on this section are the same.

3) I guess not, because i cannot see any process (Oxxx.exe) is running and no other process is running on high CPU usage.

4) Tried to copy the whole folder to my c:\ with same command. It works fine!!


I figured out why i cannot applied the patch.

For applying patches,
The "NT.prd" from patches must be using the original path which must same folder with "orainst.exe". So i map the network drive with the server & it works great now.


THANKS VERY MUCH~~~~~~~~[:)][:)][:)]
