Create a gold image for 19c Oracle Database Software Home

Creating a gold image of 19c Oracle Database software with below command. Please note you would need sufficient amount of disk space before you begin, for a 9905899041 byte file it required almost 76 GB space for me to make it available on the file system, in one of my other post i had explained how to extend rhel7 file systems at run time online with root user :

[oracle@rhel7 ~]$ $ORACLE_HOME/runInstaller -silent  -createGoldImage -destinationLocation /u01/software/19c_dbhome
Launching Oracle Database Setup Wizard...

[FATAL] [INS-32707] The specified destination location (/u01/software/19c_dbhome) does not have enough free space.
   ACTION: Provide a destination location path with at least (76,112) MB of free space.

So once the space was made available i was able to make the gold image from the software home


[oracle@rhel7 ~]$ $ORACLE_HOME/runInstaller -silent  -createGoldImage -destinationLocation /u01/software/19c_dbhome
Launching Oracle Database Setup Wizard...

......

.................

.................................
Successfully Setup Software.
Gold Image location: /u01/software/19c_dbhome/db_home_2020-07-14_09-15-53PM.zip
