    This is a VERY brief instruction on how to deploy Oracle for Windows to a bare Windows 2008 server.

    • Download and the attached file
    • Copy the database directory from the Oracle DVD to a directory on a server.
    • Modify db_install.rsp to your liking.
    • Copy db_install.rsp to the database/response directory overwriting the existing one.

    • Create a Custom Software containing the database directory and Install_Oracle.bat as install command.
    • Deploy and be happy ever after.

    5. Create a Custom Software containing the client directory and Install_Oracle.bat as install command:
