Thread: Using netca with a response file

    Hi,

    I'm trying to persuade Oracle's net config assistant netca to read a response file. I'm using Oracle 9.0.1.

    I've tried to do this using the following command line

    netca -responseFile /u01/inst/netca_apama.rsp

    and a few similar ones, but netca either says

    Missing '/' before argument name: -responseFile

    or

    java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

    I've also tried altering an OUI response file to make OUI run netca - the relevant lines are below.

    OPTIONAL_CONFIG_TOOLS={"netca"}
    s_responseFileName="/u01/inst/netca_apama.rsp"
    b_launchNETCA=true

    This doesn't work either - OUI seems to ignore the change I made to the response file.

    Any idea whats going wrong?

    Many thanks for your help,

    Rob

    Don't you have to enclose the path in the single/double quotes depending on the OS?

    The trick is to not use a dash before the option but a slash /.
    I also believe that if you want netca to actually use the responsefile,
    you need to specify a silent installation. In this case this means the
    following command line:

    netca /silent /responseFile /u01/inst/netca_apama.rsp

    Try it, it might work!
