Oracle 19c – TFA and Oracle Restart (SIHA)


It took Oracle two months and some persuasion effort to make the analyst to read and believe what I’ve written on the Service Request, but the answer finally come from development:

TFA is disabled in all 19.* SIHA versions. Will let you know once enabled.
You can download TFA from MOS and install it.

My original request in February was:

I’m installing Oracle Restart in silent mode.

I see that TFA is provided both in GI and RDBMS homes under $ORACLE_HOME/suptools/tfa/release/tfa_home

How can I make it to install THIS VERSION OF TFA (and not downloaded from Oracle Support) automatically part of a silent mode installation?

At the moment, when it runs the root.sh from RDBMS installation, it calls both
. /u00/app/oracle/product/19.6.0/install/utl/rootmacro.sh "$@"
and
/u00/app/oracle/product/19.6.0/suptools/tfa/release/tfa_home/install/roottfa.sh

The rootmacro.sh sets:
INSTALL_TFA=0

On the output of the root.sh script there is:

Oracle Trace File Analyzer (TFA) is available at : /u00/app/oracle/product/19.6.0/bin/tfactl

but this does not exist:
-bash: /u00/app/oracle/product/19.6.0/bin/tfactl: No such file or directory

So, I repeat the question:
How can I make it to install the TFA provided part of GI/RDBMS home (and not downloaded from Oracle Support) AUTOMATICALLY and PART OF SILENT MODE INSTALLATION?
