Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

Which bit do you need to know 64bit about? The Oracle Install or the OS?

For the OS,

swlist |grep 'Base OS'.

For Oracle, its written on the CD and normally in a different directory.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

It depends on which version of the OS you are running. If you are running HP-UX 11.0 32-bit, then you can only install the 32-bit version of Oracle. If you are running HP-UX 11.0 64-bit, then you can install either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Oracle.

To find out which version of the OS you are running do:

# getconf KERNEL_BITS

If it returns 32, you are running 32-bit HP-UX. If it returns 64, you are running 64-bit HP-UX.

?? Does my system support 64bit builds
You can find out if your kernel supports 64bit binaries by issuing:

a5:/usr/local 110 > file /stand/vmunix
/stand/vmunix: ELF-64 executable object file - PA-RISC 2.0 (LP64)
a5:/usr/local 111 > getconf KERNEL_BITS
64
a5:/usr/local 112 > getconf HW_32_64_CAPABLE
1
a5:/usr/local 113 >
HP-UX 10.20 does not support 64bit objects

amongst other useful info

Remember that if you install 64bit Oracle, and you want to use perl/DBI/DBD::Oracle, you will also need 64bit perl.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

thank you patrick,

I find with getconf. I have 2 other questions :

- Do you know how to find it in a HP 10.20 , argument KERNEL_BITS do not exists with getconf.

- I have one installation of Oracle 32 bits in a HP 11.00 that have KERNEL_BITS 64 , what can i do...I work with it since 2 years and no problems appears.

thanks.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

Ali,

Sorry, I tried it on an 11.11 system not an 11.00 System.

This is the results in swlist

HPUXEng64RT B.11.00.01 English HP-UX 64-bit Runtime Environment

Look for these keywords, or alternatively use the 'getconf' utility recommended elsewhere.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

Ali, again, no 64bit support on 10.20 at all.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

Ali,

As said, HP-UX 10.20 is 32-bit ONLY.

Also on HP-UX 11 64-bit, the 32-bit version of Oracle will run with no problem. If it is working with no problems, I see no reason to do anything.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

You might want to read this post, in case you are doing a migration.

Even with the same version number, the Oracle 32 bit to 64 bit migration can be tricky.

Re: Oracle installation 32 or 64 bits

Hi Ali


getconf KERNEL_BITS will give you the answer , or you can

sam--->performance mon---> System Properties---> Operating System


will give u the OS Kernel Width
