Oracle 9ir2 Hp-UX 11iv2 PA-RISC

On Oracle website, I find oracle9iR2 for HP-UX and HP-UX I64. First one for PA-RISC, second for Itanium. But PA-RISC release pre-requisites verifications fails on my server : it asks for 11.00 or 11.11. I have 11.23...

Has it been deleted because it was too old ? Has it already existed ? Any clue would help.

Hi Fred


Oracle 9iR2 is older than 11.23 so maybe documentation problem, anyway don't worry about it. Just install it

Re: Oracle 9ir2 Hp-UX 11iv2 PA-RISC

But it fails at installation du to an automatic verification (runInstaller aborts). I often see this when installing Oracle on many unsupported linux flavors, but on HP...

I suppose its verification is based on the result of `uname -r`. I could I change this to continue ?

You could try editing the script, or for fun write a temp uname script that outputs 11.00.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Re: Oracle 9ir2 Hp-UX 11iv2 PA-RISC

that's what I just did :)

grep -c B.11.11 install/*
=> install/oraparam.ini
I added B.11.23 on the good line, and it passed.

many thanks for your help.

hi Fred,

you could also bypass the verifications by using the following switch:

runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

hope this helps.

kind regards

Fred,

problably you are installing an oracle version for PA-RISC. Are you sure that you have downloaded the correct version for itanium machine?

I installed Oracle 9r2 in itanium native some years ago used for a OVO8 version.

You can download it from:

I don't see that you rtried the second option from Court Campbell : Write a little script named "uname" and add instructions like the following :
if [ "$1" = "-r" ]
then
echo "B.11.11
else
/usr/bin/uname $1
fi

Then change your path and set the directory where this script is saved as the very first in your path.

This type of workaround has already helped me installing another software that was very picky on the platform.
