The "restart" option is not available in 12.2 since it's too complicated to implement a restart option from a failure.
You will need to clean your previous failed installation and start 12.2 installation from the beginning.
Executed rapidwiz. ... My install got stuck at 38% in Apps Tier as well. ... Any Idea?
of course rapidwiz error is very clear "option -restart is invalid option...." yet i am wondering if oracle documentation/mos notes has any mention of this. I searched a lot but to no avail (not sure if am just not able to find the doc).
As 12.1 documentation has a specific section on restarting i was just expecting somewhere in 12.2 rapid install guide about the removal of restart option.
just curious to know why oracle gives surprises like this
I understand where you are coming from but what I can add on this is, since the option is not mentioned in the installation guide (unlike 11i/12.1.x) this means/indicates it's not available.
The "restart" option is no longer available in 12.2 because the installation is more complex and it may not be possible to cover every single scenario of failure especially with weblogic being included in this release.
