Hi Guys,

I am trying to package Oracle Client 10.

From Various post I found that repackaging it in .MSI format is not a good idea as it might create issues.

I saw other option in package kb which says to record the details in a response file in following way:

"<oraclepath>\setup.exe -silent -responsefile <path to response file>\mycustom.rsp"

It doesn't seem to be working.

Even though this works. My requirment is to create a MSI wrapper which can call this setup.exe of Oracle.

I have created .msi wrapper in few such instances using SourceDir custom action and calling the setup.exe from package folder but this also fails in few AD scenario.

Please advise about the recording details in response file and also suggest about calling this via msi wrapper.

Thanks

When you say it doesn't work, why doesn't it?

to record a response:
setup -record -destinationFile <response_file_name>

to specify a response file:
setup.exe -responseFile <filename> <optional_parameters>

Why do you want an msi wrapper (is it because your deploying via AD). why not just use a vbscript or wisescript to call the oracle oui exe with the response files

Hi Richard,

I got success in creating the .rsp file. Earlier I was using some other command to record.

Any idea how can we uninstall the Oracle Client?

Yes, we need to get this deployed via AD. And our deployment team ask for .msi package only.

Thanks

Thanks..

I tried as mentioned in that link but it stuck on Inventory dialog:

I used the following command:

setup.exe -deinstall session:SHOW_DEINSTALL_PROGRESS=false session:SHOW_DESINSTALL_CONFIRMATION=false -DEINSTALL_LIST = "oracle.client","10.2.0.1.0" -REMOVE_HOMES="OraClient10g_home1"

Seems somthing is still missing...

setup.exe -deinstall session:SHOW_DEINSTALL_PROGRESS=false session:SHOW_DESINSTALL_CONFIRMATION=false -DEINSTALL_LIST = "oracle.client","10.2.0.1.0" -REMOVE_HOMES="OraClient10g_home1"

curly brackets and the full path to the home

setup.exe -deinstall session:SHOW_DEINSTALL_PROGRESS=false session:SHOW_DESINSTALL_CONFIRMATION=false -DEINSTALL_LIST ={"oracle.client","10.2.0.1.0"} -REMOVE_HOMES={"/home/oracle/OraClient10g_home1"}
