Silent-Install Method for Installation of Agent12c on Windows. {CYGWIN not required.}

In this document I have explained how easily you can install Oracle Agent12c without using “CYGWIN” software. It was recommended that If you have to install Oracle Agent12c on windows server you have to install and configure CYGWIN first. However If you do not want to install CYGWIN there is one alternate method {silent Install} as well.

Using silent install method you can install Oracle Agent on windows either with or without using the “Response file”.

In this example I have installed Agent12c on one of my windows server without using  response file.

OMS Server Name = “”
Windows Server Name = “”
Step 1: Navigate to OMS Home and login and Synchronized to SL using “sysman” credentials.

[ bin]$ pwd

[ bin]$ ./emcli login -username=sysman -password=formula123
Login successful

[ bin]$ ./emcli sync
Synchronized successfully

Step 2: Get the list of available agent softwares for supported platforms.

[ bin]$ ./emcli get_supported_platforms
Getting list of platforms …
Check the logs at /app/oracle/product/middleware/oms12cr2/gc_inst/em/EMGC_OMS1/sysman/emcli/setup/.emcli/agent.log
About to access self-update code path to retrieve the platforms list..

Getting Platforms list  …
Version =
Platform = Linux x86-64
Version =
Platform = Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
Version =
Platform = Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Platforms list displayed successfully.

Step 3: Download the Agent software compatible with your Windows Server.

[ bin]$
[ bin]$ ./emcli get_agentimage -destination=/tmp/agent12c_silent/ -platform=”Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)” -version=

Step 4: Transfer the downloaded ZIP file to a temporary directory on the destination host where you want to install the Management Agent. On the destination host, extract the contents of the ZIP file using the Unzip utility.

Step 5: Install Oracle Agent using the “agentDeploy.bat” file. Below mentioned are 4 parameters which you have to provide.

“OMS_HOST” {OMS server on which OEM software is installed}
“EM_UPLOAD_PORT” {EM upload port which will be used by agent to connect with OMS}
“AGENT_BASE_DIR” {Location where Oracle agent will be installed}
“AGENT_REGISTRATION_PASSWORD” {Password required to secure/unsecure or to resynchronize an agent}
