Changes Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12.2Posted: 17/04/2017
Starting with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c Release 2 (12.2), Oracle Grid Infrastructure software is available as an image file for download and installation.
You must extract the image software into the directory where you want your Grid home to be located, and then run the gridSetup.sh (no more runInstaller) script to start Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation.
Before Install (Important):
Since it’s only a image and you just unpack it, if download is corrupted then you will get a corrupted Oracle Home.
Then I recommend you perform a check before.
grid@lpi-oracle:/u01/mount> unzip -t aixppc64_12201_grid_home.zip |grep -v OK Archive: aixppc64_12201_grid_home.zip No errors detected in compressed data of aixppc64_12201_grid_home.zip.
How to Install
Just unpack the zip image on new OH.
If you unpack on /tmp/grid and run gridSetup.sh the new OH will be /tmp/grid.

You can’t change ORACLE HOME during installation, you can set ORACLE_BASE only.
Note: Download and copy the Oracle Grid Infrastructure image files to the local node only. During installation, the software is copied and installed on all other nodes in the cluster.
Another new important Feature.
Starting with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c Release 2 (12.2), Oracle Grid Infrastructure installer supports the option of deploying Oracle Domain Services Clusters and Oracle Member Clusters.
Two ways to Deploying a Grid Installation for a Cluster:
Oracle Standalone Cluster – Default Installation of Oracle Clusterware
Oracle Cluster Domain – If you have multiples Oracle Clusterware Installation in your infraestructure and want manage it as single Cluster, then you must start think deploy a Cluster Domain.
Multiple cluster configurations are grouped under an Oracle Cluster Domain for management purposes and make use of shared services available within that Oracle Cluster Domain. The cluster configurations within that Oracle Cluster Domain include Oracle Domain Services Cluster and Oracle Member Clusters.
Later I will create a new post explaining the new installation feature Oracle Domain Services Clusters and Oracle Member Clusters.
