Oracle 11.2 client install command line switches
Posted on 2011-03-03
We have an Oracle 11 installation. I'm trying to install the client software on a Windows 7 (64bit) PC. We're in a domain where the guys are starting to play with Windows DFS. They have mapped the user's temp directory (c:\users\jrollins\AppData\Local\Temp) to a DFS path somewhere on the network. This is where the Oracle client setup.exe program is writing it's temporary files.
The setup program starts, tells me where it's putting it's working files and then disappears. I see the working directory in c:\users\jrollins\AppData\Local\Temp but nothing happens. It is my belief that the guys haven't got the DFS stuff configured properly and its affecting my install. I have installed this software successfully on similar hardware/OS before they started messing around with DFS.
My question: is there a client.exe command line argument that allows me to change the program's working directory? I believe that this will run just fine if I can keep everything on my local C: drive.
I've tried running client.exe with various command line arguments trying get a usage display with no luck. I need an Oracle expert who might be able to help.
