Question: I use the -silent option. However the
flag doesn't seem to work, it still gives me a window of oracle
installer. Does this -silent argument flag work -
command: start X:\discoverer_10gr2\setup.exe
-responseFile x:\response\install_disco10gr2 -silent
I tried putting the -silent flag right after the setup.exe as
well but with the same result.
Answer: Your silent installation could be
failing for any number of reasons. Oracle installer offers the
-silent or -suppressed mode command line arguments. The success or
failure of the silent install is recorded in a silentInstall.log
file. When the -silent mode fails, you should check the following:
- You did not specify a response file.
- You specified a response file, but the specified response
file is incorrect or incomplete.
- The Oracle docs note that a common problem is that the
product-specific data may be filled out correctly, but it is
possible that the staging area location is incorrect. In this
situation, you can check the from_location variable to
be certain that it is pointed to the products.xml file in the
installation media, which is in the response/stage location for
this particular file.
