This note describes the procedure used to clone an Oracle 19c database software ORACLE_HOME using a Gold Image.
As a one-time task, we use the new Oracle 19c option –createGoldImage to create a ‘master’ copy of the Oracle 19c database software (this will include January 2020 PSU patch).
The generated zip file is then copied to the target servers and then extracted in the target ORACLE_HOME directory.
The note describes the ‘silent’ method as well as using the OUI to set up the Oracle 19c database software.
