Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i

Hello Gurus,

We are having thousands of problems during our oracle database installation. We mount the first CD wiht the next option

mount -F cdfs -e -o ro,rr ..... ......

The installation starts and after a while it asks for the second CD . Then we umount the first CD and mount the second . However Oracle nevers detect the second CD . We have tried with serveral paths in the CD but nothing works.


Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you able to see the mounted files from another session? Obviously the most likely explanation is bad media.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Hi,

if you have free space on your local disk
try to copy all Oracle cd's as Disk1, Disk2, Disk3 and Disk4. Oracle installer will use this
disks automaticaly.

Re: Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i

Lets say your cdrom mount point is /cdrom

Then you do this;

cd /cdrom

runinstaller (whatever command starts the oracle install)

You can't eject the cd and go to cd 2 because there is an open process on the folder which prevents umount from working.

If you did this try this.

cd $HOME

/cdrom/runInstaller

Now the change will work right.

IF this is not the case its probably bad media. You can download the release and install off of disk.

Re: Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i

I agree with the posted response above - copy all of the disks onto your server first, then run the installer. This will also come in hand y if you a)have problems and want to re-run, b) change your mind on options and want to re-run, or c) there is a bug in the installer (or installed disks) and you need to patch it before you run the install. And, most importantly, so you wont have to keep messing with the loads and unloads while installing.

Re: Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i

Hi Javier,

Its better to copy the oracle cdâ s to your disk and then install from there. Although you should be able to mount the CD's and install, copying to the disk is easy.

And the other things to consider when installing Oracle 9i on HP-UX 11i are as follows:-

1. Due to a known HP bug (Doc. id: KBRC00003627), the default HP-UX (64-bit) operating system installation does not create a few required X library symbolic links. These links must be created manually before starting Oracle9i Release 2 installation. To create these links, you must have superuser privileges, as the links are to be created in the /usr/lib directory.

2. When installing Oracle 9i on HP, the linker will look for libXm.sl,libXt.sl and libX11.sl when compiling the binary 'ctxhx'.

The attached document describes the steps to manually creating the links.

Re: Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i

This is a known problem.
Copy all the disks,i.e disk1,disk2,disk3 to the same parent directory and start the installation.

Re: Oracle 9i installation over hp-ux 11i


mkdir /home/oraclesoftware
(Create a directory disk1 if the files are only present and no directory as disk1 on the cd1)

cd /home/oraclesoftware
mkdir disk1
cd disk1
cp -r /CD/* .

similarly for other CD's too..
