Starting with Oracle Database 18c, installation and configuration of Oracle Database software are simplified with the image-based installation.

To install Oracle Database, create the new Oracle home directory, extract the image file into the newly-created Oracle home, and run the setup wizard to register the Oracle Database product.

Using image-based installation, you can install and upgrade Oracle Database for single-instance and cluster configurations.

This installation feature streamlines the installation process and supports automation of large-scale custom deployments. You can also use this installation method for deployment of customized images, after you patch the base-release software with the necessary Release Updates (RUs) or Release Update Revisions (RURs).

Step 1: Create the Oracle Home directory

[root@18c ~]# mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/18.0.0/db_1
[root@18c ~]# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01
[root@18c ~]# chmod -R 775 /u01

Step 2: Install the preinstall rpm to meet the requirement

[root@18c ~]# rpm -ivh oracle-rdbms-server-12cR2-preinstall*

Step3: login as Oracle user and unzip the binary in ORACLE_HOME directory

[oracle@18c ~]$ unzip -q -d /u01/app/oracle/product/18.0.0/db_1/

Step 4: set the environment variables and run the runInstaller.

[oracle@18c ~]$ export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/18.0.0/db_1
[oracle@18c ~]$ /u01/app/oracle/product/18.0.0/db_1/runInstaller
