Oracle 18C silent install stops.

User_SOS07 Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

Hi all,

Since a few weeks/months the silent option is no longer working for us on several systems (Windows 10, 20H2). 

The command line used is:

C:\Oracle\product\setup.exe -silent -nowait -ignorePrereqFailure -skipPrereqs -waitForCompletion -force "oracle.install.option=.... etc etc" (We do not use a responsefile)

The installer just quits after a while, the last message given is where the log of the installation is en de message "PersistEnv". The services "OracleOraDB18Home1TNSListener" (running) and "OracleRemExecServiceV2" (disabled but running, is removed when stopped) and several ORA user groups are made. 

When I remove the -Silent it works fine, except you get the GUI and you need to press next etc.

The only clue I have is an eventlog entry in the Application log (event ID 1000).

Faulting application name: java.exe, version: 8.0.1710.11, time stamp: 0x5abc22fc

Faulting module name: orasrvm18.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5b6b5c35

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x000000000000ffa0

Faulting process id: 0x2ea4

Faulting application start time: 0x01d8015b8f259525

Faulting application path: C:\Oracle\product\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe

Faulting module path: C:\Oracle\product\oui\lib\win64\orasrvm18.dll

The "installActions*.log stops with "INFO: Calling Action WindowsActionLib12. SetACLForUser" while logs of installations that are succesfull continue with some more "INFO: Calling Action WindowsActionLib12. SetACLForUser" entries.

We are not sure since when this started. We know for sure that it worked in October, but we noticed it mid December. Searching for the event entry did not result in anything usefull.

Any ideas?
