Oracle Installation

Hi,
I have mounted Oracle CD using,

1. nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
2. nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &
3. /usr/sbin/pfs_mount -t rrip -x unix /dev/dsk/c4t2d0 /SD_CDROM

But while running "orainst" it hangs and gives following mesg.

NFS server f1fa not responding still trying

Any idea to come out.

Re: Oracle Installation

for pfs_mount you need to have NFS services started.

You can do this through SAM

Re: Oracle Installation

To manually start NFS:

nfs must be running on the system for PFS to work, even if the
system is standalone. To check to see if nfs is running,
use the command:

rpcinfo -p

and look for nfs and mountd in the last column.

If you do not find them, then make sure the following variables are
set in the /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf file:

NFS_CLIENT=1
NFS_SERVER=1
NUM_NFSD=4
START_MOUNTD=1

If you modified nfsconf, issue the following two commands to
restart the nfs server:

/sbin/init.d/nfs.server start
/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

Go back and check Stefan's comments in your previous thread:

http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0x278193e260b0d611abdb0090277a778c,00.html

If you apply the Rockridge Extension patches, then you don't have to mess with pfs_mount - which, judging from the hundreds of questions posted about it, is a real pain to use. With the patches applied, you just use a regular mount/umount - much simpler.

Re: Oracle Installation

Hi Alan Casey,
As you have suggested, nfs is already running.

Re: Oracle Installation

Hiya,

I assume the name of your server is f1fa?

You need to make sure NFS is running - make sure rpcbind is running (ps -ef | grep rpcbind) and if it isn't, start it using /sbin/init.d/ scripts. Then make sure NFS itself is running by changing the /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf to make everything the various configs to =1 from =0, then start NFS using /sbin/init.d/nfs* scripts.

Hope this helps.

Re: Oracle Installation

hi everybody,
Hello James ,
I have checked as u suggested n found

Re: Oracle Installation

Just run /usr/sbin/rpcbind

If you have done hardening as suggested in the bastion host document, this file may have been renamed and you'll need to rename it back.

Cheers!

Re: Oracle Installation

... you may need to restart your NFS services after you've got rpcbind running. Not sure there though.

Cheers!

Re: Oracle Installation

Ah! Sorry, assumptions of being on 11...

rpcbind does not seem to exist on 10.20. Can you try to run "rpcinfo -p" and see if gets a valid response?

Cheers!

Re: Oracle Installation

This shows that RPC is running and communicating. It may be you need a patch - I suggest taking a look at PHNE_22288 and seeing if it, or it's latest superceding patch fixes your problem.

It seems like your configuration is fine for RPC on 10.20, so I think I've come to the end of my knowledge on this. Anyone else got any ideas?
