Silent Installation of Oracle 12c Grid Infrastructure and Oracle ASM

posted October 8, 2015, 2:12 PM by

Andy Kerber, Senior Consultant

The intent of this post is to describe the steps to complete a silent installation of Oracle 12c Grid Infrastructure (not clustered) and Oracle ASM.

Installing Oracle software in silent mode can be a challenge. It requires close attention to detail, and close documentation review to make sure all the prerequisites are installed prior to the silent install.

For a list of Oracle required packages, and installation instructions for those packages, see this previous blog post. That blog also discusses installing X-windows and an X-server, but those are not required for a silent installation.

What follows are the step-by-step instructions for a silent installation of Oracle 12c Grid Infrastructure (GI) on a non-clustered server.

Step-by-step Instructions for a Silent Installation

Step 1
Download the Oracle installation media. For Oracle database Enterprise Edition 12c, you will need both the Oracle database and the Grid Infrastructure files in order to install both the database software and the Grid Infrastructure.

The download location for the Oracle GI and Database software is here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/database12c-linux-download-2240591.html.

Oracle will require you to create an account before you can download the software. If you are properly licensed for Oracle, and have an Oracle CSI, you can download patch 17694377, files 1-4 for Oracle Enterprise Edition only or Patch 21419221, files 1-6 for Oracle Standard Edition 2 and Enterprise Edition.

Step 2
Unzip the Grid Infrastructure files. They will automatically unzip into a subdirectory called grid under your working directory. Assuming you are working from /home/oracle, this will be /home/oracle/grid.

Step 3
Create your top-level directory for the software installation, typically this is /u01, so the command mkdir -p /u01 will create the directory you need. If the system administrator is doing that, make sure he or she runs the command

'chown oracle:oinstall /u01' after creating the directory.

 

Step 4
Next and most important, modify the response file to meet your environment. Copy the file ./grid/response/grid_install.rsp to your working directory, typically /home/oracle. Then make changes to the copy of the response file. For this example, the following is a copy of my response file:

Step 5
Run the grid control installation. This is the step that it is most important to get correct. I suggest that you edit your command in a text editor, then copy and paste it into the command line.

This is the command appropriate for a typical environment using the response file above: /home/oracle/grid/runInstaller -silent -responseFile /home/oracle/grid_install.rsp -showProgress

The following is an example of a successful installation:

Step 7
Create the Oracle ASM instance. ASM is fairly easy to create from the command line. The only two options that you need to work with the system administrator on are the names of the ASM disks, and the ASM disk string. Typically your administrator will just give you that information. Below is the command line to create an ASM instance, and the output:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/asmca -silent -configureASM -sysAsmPassword Password1 -
asmsnmpPassword Password1 -diskstring /dev/oracleasm/disks/* -diskGroupName data -diskList 
/dev/oracleasm/disks/DSK1 -redundancy EXTERNAL
ASM created and started successfully.

Disk Group data created successfully.
