Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

Hello!

During the installation process of Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits I get the following error:"Error in invoking target install of makefile /opt/oracle/product/8.1.7/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk"

I have just ignored this message during the installation. Once it is finished I cannot open a svrmgrl session.

I checked the make.log, which gives an Out of Memory message.Please see attached a copy of the make.log file.

Have you ever seen a similar problem?

Thanks in advance

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

What's your kernel parameter maxdsiz set to?
If I remember correctly, it needs to be at least 256Mb to install 64bit Oracle 8.1.7. The default is 64Mb.

John

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

Hi

Increase the maxdsiz kernel parameter from the default to 2GB.

you can also put more value in the maxdsiz

if you are inastalling this oracle for openview-ovo please see the guide line of kernel params .

but this problem 99% solve by increaseing the
maxdsiz_64bit

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

Thanks John, unfortunately the maxdsiz was already set to 64Mb.

What do you know about patch bug 1467074?

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

If maxdsiz was already 64Mb then that's most likely your problem. You need to incraese it to at least 256Mb and reboot.

After the reboot, you can try 'relink all'.

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

hi,

check the $ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log file for errors.
If it says out of memory error exit code 1 , error exit code 12, Please increase the maxdsiz kernel parameter to 256 MB by default it will be 64 MB.

Consider increasing both maxdsiz and maxtsiz to 256 MB.

If you don't see any errors, try relinking manually with the following command.
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all

hope this helps!

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

yes,
If 256 is not Ok then increase the maxdsiz to 500MB.
Out of memory errors are due to the processes exceeding these values.

Then relink your Oracle executables.

Thanks

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

maxdsiz_64 is for the 64bit programs.
Also Try increase this parameter to 300MB.

The maxdsiz is just a fence the upper limit value for the processes for not to use the entire RAM.

Thanks

maxdsiz and maxdsiz_

During the relink phase of the installation, you
may see an Out of memory error if you do
not set a value larger than the default for
maxdsiz and maxdsiz_64bit, for example
1GB. This is because the relinking of all the
libraries requires additional space for the data
storage segment.

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

Thanks all!

After increasing maxd_siz and maxt_siz to 256Mb, the system could relink succesfully

Re: Error when installing Oracle 8.1.7 64 bits

You needed to relink. That's good. You might want to run this utility on systems before installing oracle. It helps you get the kernel and ulimit ship shape before your installation dies.

Note: The physical memory check fails because Oracle doesn't really know HP-UX very well. If you have 256 Meg of Memory(I recommend a LOT more), this utility will really make the next install easier.
