I was trying to install Oracle 10g release2 on HP-UX cmcmum B.11.31 U ia64 0739739162 unlimited-user license but it giving error while ./runInstaller checking system pre requests.

Checking operating system version: must be B.11.23. Actual B.11.31
Failed <<<<
Checking operating system requirements ...
Expected result: One of 11.23
Actual Result: 11.31
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<
Problem: Oracle Database 10g is not certified on the current operating system.
Recommendation: Make sure you are installing the software on the correct platform.

It is supported, but Oracle never seem to bother updating their install media...

./runInstaller -ignoreSysPreReqs

should work fine

Shalom,

You have your answer.

You will need a different version of Oracle or different OS.

_no_.

Oracle 10gR2 _is_ supported on 11.31 - the problem is the installer, not the product.

You can check this yourself using Oracle's certification matrices here:

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Dear Forum dudes,
I had installed patch id PHKL_38080 as read in forums still not solving my version issue.
Any other patches needs to be installed or what?

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Hmmm are you ignoring my advice?

./runInstaller -ignoreSysPreReqs

Will prevent the problem you are seeing... 10gR2 is supported on 11iv3, but Oracle never updated the installer to reflect this so you have to run with the -ignoreSysPreReqs option to tell Oracle to ignore the OS check (amongst other things)

This is all documented in the link I sent you... if we have to spell it out:

1. Click on this link:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/support/metalink/index.html

2. Click "View Certifications by Platform"

3. In the Selection Box Select "HP-UX Itanium" and click on "Submit"

4. In the Selection Box Select "Database/Server" and click on "Submit"

5. In the Selection Box Select "Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition" and click on "Submit"

6. Read the information on this screen... then select the 10gR2 64-bit check box and click on "Submit"

7. In the row for 11iv3 (11.31) click on the "Yes" link in the Addtl. Info column

8. And there you will find yourself at the screen which indicates the following information:

"To ignore the system pre-requisite test during installation use-ignoreSysPreReqs flag with runInstaller."

Hi Vairamuthu,

As above mentioned by Duncan you can install 10g R2 in hpux 11.31 by using

./runInstaller -ignoreSysPreReqs

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

I am not ignoring your advice Mr.Duncan.Issue is I am able to start the OUI by giving the ignore option but in next pre requisite step of Oracle universal installer agains the same error is coming.In addition to that it shows the patches which are required for 11.23 version while processing with the installer.
This step also i have to skip and continue the installation.Please suggest.For your refrence screenshot and warnings/failed checks are attached with this reply.

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

I am able to run the installer as mentioned by Duncan.Now i am facing a different issue while installation process time which is taking more than a day to get 100% complete and also it was not showing any next option to go forward.I have checked in log files also no error got updated over there.

Normally how much time will be taken for oracle 10g release2 installtion on hp unix itanium server 11.31 version.

This installation process i am carrying out thro Xmanager tool to get the Oracle Universla Installer user interaction GUI screens because the server resides somewhere remote.

Can anybody help me out on this issue..!

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Hi,

Normally how much time will be taken for oracle 10g release2 installtion on hp unix itanium server 11.31 version?

In my case it took less than a hour for complete binary deployment.I have created database seperately and not along with software installation.

If only software installaion is taking more time means there could be some issues:-

a) system might have experienced resource bottleneck.

b) How was the disk /Memory/ CPU utlisation at that time ?

c) If your using network installation source ,it may take more time.

d) If you have selected database creation along with software installation it may take more time but not one day .

e)Have you executed root.sh ?

Hi ,

check the below log for more information about what went wrong during the Oracle binary installation.

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Hi ,

I believe there is no problem in the Oracle binary deployment ..the reason why you are not getting next/finsh tab is you might not executed root.sh script ,after 100% of installation you will get a pop up window display to execute root.sh scripts.Once you have completed then you can close the pop up screen and get an installation succesfull window.

Check your alert log last lines for the status.

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Hi I had completed the installation successfully.Issue of time taking is not find the correct path of java installed and also the 11.31 family 32 processor.Hence I have to give the Java path along with the run installer option which got completed in one hour approx.

Thanks for all the guidance dudes..!

And final question is how to find the raw disk space and disk group names.This is required for me to install the ASM-Automatic storage management option of Oracle 10g release2.
/dev/rdsk there are some files.How can i confirm those files sizes.Can you please clarify about raw disk and logical volume group disk in detail.

Vairamuthu M

Re: Installation of 10g relaese2 on hp unix itanium 11.31 version

Vairamuthu M,

glad you got going... as regards ASM, if you are on 11.31 I would advise you against using anything under /dev/rdsk as those are the old legacy device special files - the raw devices you should use if possible are under /dev/rdisk. However I wouldn't give ASM direct access to this location as that can lead to problems down the line...

- First use diskowner to identify if specific disks are already in use e.g.:

diskowner /dev/rdisk/disk9

Disks that are already in use you should leave alone

- For unused disks Use diskinfo to identify the size of the disk/LUN e.g.:

diskinfo /dev/rdisk/disk9

- Now you should have a list of candidate disks/LUNs that you want to give over to ASM control...

For each LUN identify its major & minor numbers using ls -l:

ls -l /dev/rdisk/disk9
crw-r----- 1 bin sys 23 0x000004 Aug 21 2008 /dev/rdisk/disk9

Then create a special area for Oracle ASM disks and create DSFs with matching major/minor numbers in that directory using mknod. You might also want to set permissions suitable for Oracle/ASM on these devices... e.g.:

mkdir /dev/asm
chown oracle:dba /dev/asm
chmod 750 /dev/asm

mknod /dev/asm/asmdisk01 c 23 0x000004
chown 660 /dev/asm/asmdisk01

(Repeat for other disks/LUNs)

- Now when you create your ASM instance point your ASM instance at the /dev/asm directory (I don't know how you do it in the GUI but from the command line you do it by setting the ASM instance parameter ASM_DISKSTRING to /dev/asm )
