Oracle 10g on HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit)

Is anyone running Oracle 10g on HP-UX 11i (PA-RISC)? I would like to know how it performs and what, if any, problems you had during install/upgrade of your database.

Currently we are running 8.1.7.4 on HP-UX 11i. Box has 2GB of RAM and 4 x 36.4GB drives.

Eventually we will have to upgrade and I'm downloading the necessary software, documentation , Oracle patchsets and HP-UX patches. I would like to know who out there has gone this path before and how was it?

Depending on other applications your system is adequate for the database release.

If you put the 10g application server on in any form on the same hardware you will be paging in and out of swap and have unacceptably slow performance.

Take care to carefully install all pre-requisite patches. Bring java current but stay on the matrix Oracle support provides for valid version numbers.

NB. The default 64bit OS installation does not create a few required X library symbolic links. The following symbolic links need to be created:
(NOTE: These task is required only if the Motif 2.1 Development Environment Package (X11MotifDevKit.MOTIF21-PRG ) is not installed ).
cd /usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl
ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.4 libXm.sl
