How to Install Oracle 19c Software Only with Silent Mode

With Response File

First of all, let’s take a look at the content of the response file.

[oracle@primary-19c ~]$ ll db-19c-software-only-installation.rsp
-rwx------ 1 oracle oinstall 605 Aug  1 10:24 db-19c-software-only-installation.rsp
[oracle@primary-19c ~]$ cat db-19c-software-only-installation.rsp
oracle.install.responseFileVersion=/oracle/install/rspfmt_dbinstall_response_schema_v19.0.0
oracle.install.option=INSTALL_DB_SWONLY
UNIX_GROUP_NAME=oinstall
INVENTORY_LOCATION=/u01/app/oraInventory
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
oracle.install.db.InstallEdition=EE
oracle.install.db.OSDBA_GROUP=dba
oracle.install.db.OSOPER_GROUP=oper
oracle.install.db.OSBACKUPDBA_GROUP=backupdba
oracle.install.db.OSDGDBA_GROUP=dgdba
oracle.install.db.OSKMDBA_GROUP=kmdba
oracle.install.db.OSRACDBA_GROUP=racdba
oracle.install.db.rootconfig.executeRootScript=true
oracle.install.db.rootconfig.configMethod=ROOT

Next, install Oracle 19c software with silent mode.

[oracle@primary-19c ~]$ $ORACLE_HOME/runInstaller -silent -noconfig -responseFile /home/oracle/db-19c-software-only-installation.rsp
Launching Oracle Database Setup Wizard...


 Enter password for 'root' user:
The response file for this session can be found at:
 /u01/app/oracle/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1/install/response/db_2019-08-01_10-32-36AM.rsp

You can find the log of this install session at:
 /tmp/InstallActions2019-08-08_07-32-36PM/installActions2019-08-01_10-32-36AM.log
Successfully Setup Software.
Moved the install session logs to:
 /u01/app/oraInventory/logs/InstallActions2019-08-01_10-32-36AM

Please note that, with -noconfig, OUI will ignore any configurations related to database creation.

Without Response File

Without response file, we have to put all arguments in the command line.

[oracle@primary-19c ~]$ $ORACLE_HOME/runInstaller -silent -noconfig oracle.install.option=INSTALL_DB_SWONLY UNIX_GROUP_NAME=oinstall INVENTORY_LOCATION=/u01/app/oraInventory ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle oracle.install.db.InstallEdition=EE oracle.install.db.OSDBA_GROUP=dba oracle.install.db.OSOPER_GROUP=oper oracle.install.db.OSBACKUPDBA_GROUP=backupdba oracle.install.db.OSDGDBA_GROUP=dgdba oracle.install.db.OSKMDBA_GROUP=kmdba oracle.install.db.OSRACDBA_GROUP=racdba oracle.install.db.rootconfig.executeRootScript=true oracle.install.db.rootconfig.configMethod=ROOT
Launching Oracle Database Setup Wizard...


 Enter password for 'root' user:
The response file for this session can be found at:
 /u01/app/oracle/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1/install/response/db_2019-08-01_10-50-17AM.rsp

You can find the log of this install session at:
 /tmp/InstallActions2019-08-08_07-50-17PM/installActions2019-08-01_10-50-17AM.log
Successfully Setup Software.
Moved the install session logs to:
 /u01/app/oraInventory/logs/InstallActions2019-08-01_10-50-17AM

The only information I need to provide is the root password in order to run orainstRoot.sh and root.sh automatically during post-installation.
