With 12c Golden Gate Oracle had introduced the Oracle Universal Install(OUI) for installation of Golden Gate. In previous version of the Golden Gate we were simply unzipping the file and the software becomes ready to use.
But 12c onwards we will use runinstaller to install the OGG software. 
OUI will help to keep uniformity across Oracle products.

In this post I will be discussing about Silent installation of Oracle 12c Golden Gate (OGG).

  • Download the appropriate  OGG software from Oracle as per operation system (Linux,HP,AIX etc.)

  • Unzip the software and go into the the extracted folder.  We can find the template response file(oggcore.rsp). Copy the response file and  edit the below parameter.

ORA12c for installing Oracle GoldenGate for Oracle Database 12c and
ORA11g for installing Oracle GoldenGate for Oracle Database 11g


Location to install Oracle GoldenGate


Specify true to start the manager after installation else false.


Any port number, default 7809. Only required if we are giving START_MANAGER as true.


Location of the Oracle Database.Required only if START_MANAGER is true.


Specify the location which holds the install inventory files. This is optional parameter.


Group that should own the installation of Golden Gate.

Save the response file.

  • Run Installer in silent mode and pass the above create response file.
$ ./runInstaller -silent -responseFile oggcore.rsp
