Not able to execute Runinstaller

 

Hi All,

 

I am in process of installing 10gr2 on hpux itanium server. I've copied the setup file to target machine and did the unzip.

but , I am really surprised , I am not able to execute runinstaller.

Re: Not able to execute runInstaller

What is the first line of runInstaller?  Is Oracle illegally using bash to install on HP-UX?

If so, you'll need to download/install bash.

Re: Not able to execute runInstaller

 

thanks for the inputs, but i am really not sure , when you say, what is the first line ... ?? what do you need to know ? the default shell , this user uses is ksh. also, how could i know, if oracle illegely using bash here ??

accorind to me , it seems to me a permission issue , which i asked unix folks to give their check against ?

what do you think ?

The first, "#!" line, of the script .../runInstaller.

 

>how could I know, if oracle illegally using bash here?

 

I told you, check what is on the #! line.  And there was a recent topic on it:

>it seems to me a permission issue

 

That's the problem, it isn't an obvious permission issue and so you are getting a bogus message.  This is a syndrome that the shell doesn't exist.  Especially since you show the script is executable.

Yes, you seems to hit the right button. that is what seperate gretes from ordinary. going forward , do i need to change the shell of my user ?

 

#!/bin/sh

# The environment variable $SRCHOME cannot be set during the installation
unset SRCHOME

AWK=/bin/awk

BUNDLE=db
OCR_LOC=/var/opt/oracle/ocr.loc
LOCALONLY=local_only

#!/bin/sh

 

Oops, that's not bash all and /bin/sh should work fine.

And in any case, I was mistaken on the error message.  If your interpreter isn't there, you get a nice message:

interpreter "/bin/sh" not found

... Then:

sh: your-script-name:  not found.

(You also get this if you have a trailing CR because the file was copied from Windows.)

 

Experimenting with the script, you do get that "Execute permission denied." error if the shell doesn't have execute permission or is a directory.

 

So, what does this show: ll /bin/sh

 

>do I need to change the shell of my user?

 

That shouldn't matter.  But what is your shell?

 

>./runInstaller: /db/kronqa/export/csc/10gr2_setup/database/install/runInstaller: Execute permission denied.

 

Perhaps I'm confused on the error message?  Are there two runInstaller files?

What is your pwd?  Is it /db/kronqa/export/csc/10gr2_setup/database/install/?

 

What does this show:

ll /db/kronqa/export/csc/10gr2_setup/database/install/runInstaller
