Can Oracle Release 3 (8.1.7) for HP 9000 Series HP-UX (64-bit) be installed on a HP-UX(32-bit)?
I got the exact the same error described in the previous message(http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0xced4cdec06f1d61190050090279cd0f9,00.html):

Hi Larry,

You can't install Oracle 8.1.7 on 32-bit HP-UX because 8.1.7 is 64-bit.

Here is a link to a thread where I answered a similar question a couple of weeks ago:

There also exist a a 32 bit version of Oracle 8.1.7.3 that can be installed on a 32 bits server. The 64bits version won't work on 32 bits hardware.

Hi Larry

you can install this oracle for 32 bit if it for only 64 bit .

you need to get the rigth cd for this install .

you will not have a problem ( most of the time ) to install a 32 bit applic on 64 bit but not in reverse .

The more general answer to the question is that 64-bit anything can not be installed on 32-bit HP-UX but 32-bit anything (well almost, kernel intensive stuff excepted) can be run under 64-bit HP-UX.

You need to get a copy of the 32-bit Oracle executables.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

You would contact Oracle support to get media updates if you have support. Otherwise you can buy it online through the "store" at oracle.com

Oracle8i Enterprise edition release 3 (8.1.7)
64 bit : product # A87070-01 & A87071-01
32 bit : product # A87076-01 & A87077-01
(they come on 2 CDs)

PS : if you use standard edition these would be different product numbers.

Hi,

To install Oracle 64 bit, you need to have HP-UX 64 Bit on the server.

Hope this helps.

Larry,
Had a question with oracle does the following mean a 64 bit Hardware machine or a 32 bit hardware machine and a 64 bit OS like the 8.1.7 HP-UX

Thanks

I didn't frame my question correctly above
Here is what I wanted to ask
-------------------
Oracle 8i EE version 8.1.7 HP-UX 11 64 bit

Does the reference to 64 bit above refers to HP-UX 64 bit hardware , or will the following be compatible with HP-UX 32 bit hardware , 64 bit Operating System.

Oracle 8i EE version 8.1.7 HP-UX 11 64 bit
