Oracle 9i on 32 bit machine?

Hi everyone,

We are looking to upgrade our Oracle installation to 9i. We have an HP9000/803/D220 machine running the 32bit version of HP-UX 11.11. Is this going to work? Is there a 32 bit version of Oracle 9i... Looking at the Oracle website, the OS pre-req's only mention HP-UX 11.0 64Bit...

Thanks in advance
Kevin

As far as I know, Oracle 9i is 64bit only, but I may be wrong. have you asked Oracle?

Oracle have said that there are absolutely no plans to release a 32bit edition of Oracle 9i on HPUX.

You can still run 32bit apps against 64bit HPUX 11 and 64bit Oracle 9i. The key is to set up the correct Oracle user env:

$LD_LIBRARY_PATH - includes $ORACLE_HOME/lib, but not $ORACLE_HOME/lib32
$SHLIB_PATH - includes $ORACLE_HOME/lib32, but not $ORACLE_HOME/lib
