easiest way is to create a response file by running OUI as if you were going to do it manually, then saving the responses and tweaking the file as necessary.

then use that response file for the silent installs everywhere you need it

sdstuber :  you nean the dbca.rsp will be the response file that I can use to install the oracle 11g and create a database by adjusting the fields in the file?

dbca.rsp is one of the default response files Oracle provides.  That would be used for creating a new database through the creation assistant (dbca)  but only after you already have 11g software itself installed.

to create a response file for installing 11gR2 software,  run OUI and save the response file

in the link from slightwv above check this section....
