Oracle 10g installation on HP UX 11.23 - Patches & Kernal Parameters needed

Hi All,

I am going to install Oracle 10g Database in a clustered environment. Can you provide me the details for the following?

1. What are all the HP UX OS Patches required for installing oracle 10g database?

2. What are the ideal kernal parameters and selection methods?

Thanks in advance

Regards

Sundar

Shalom Sundar,

There are no ideal kernel parameters. You will be fine if you meet Oracle minimums and take them from another Oracle System.

All I have to say is, dude, you need metalink access to bring this off.

Hi
Why don´t install ALL the patchs ??
It´s very easy. Go to:
http://www8.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/assessSystemsPage.do?BC=main|
run swinv script and dowload all the patches that are not installed into your system.
Easy.

Pre-Install check
If you are ok with time, all patches missing with use of CPM, swainv->Inventory.xml->Required patches.->UAT
But this will not advise for the kernel parameters, so stick with Pre-Install check.
