Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi All,

I'm trying to install oracle10g on an HPUX server and getting the following errors when oracle does it's system validation stuff prior to the install?

The output is showing that the kernal values are found but reports an error?

Why are these kernal params not found?

Has anyone seen this or can suggest what might be causing the issue?

Thanks in advance

Paul

Problem: The security parameters in the kernel do not meet the minimum requirements (see above).

Recommendation: Perform operating system specific instructions to update the kernel parameters, namely BIT_SIZE and noexec_user_stack.

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi Paul,
and welcome to the forums !

Who are you running the pre-requisite script as ? Have you double-checked the setup for that user.

Seems that the command that extracts the values list of kernel parameters from the system failed.

Once you have that sorted, please also read:

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi Peter

Thanks for your email.

I'm logged onto the server as a user called oracle who is a member of the dba group.

The errors I mentioned above are generated by the Oracle Installer. It runs some pre-install validation checks like O/S Patches, kernal Paramters, O/S packages and the Oracle env's. It's whn the installer is doing the checks that I get the issue with the kernal parameters not being found.

I do have Oracle 9.2.0.4 installed on the server as well...not sure if this could be causing an issue?

Any further help, greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Paul,
if you have access to metalink (Oracle's ITRC) please read Note:283731.1

From what I can see the programs involved in checking are:
/usr/sbin/kmtune
/usr/bin/test
/usr/bin/grep
/usr/bin/awk
/usr/bin/cat
/usr/bin/echo

Also the file /stand/system

Can you please check that all these files are accessable/executable by your oracle user.

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi Peter

I've checked the files as you sugested and all of them are 555 so user oracle and world have executable rights.

I've checked these param settings via sam and I know they are atleast the size that recommended. So I manually verfied the checks in the oracle gui.

Also the checks said that...

Checking recommended operating system packages
Checking for X11MotifDevKit(0.0); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for X11MotifDevKit.MOTIF21-PRG(0.0); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for Jun03GQPK11i_Aux_Patch(B.03.10.29); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<
Problem: Some recommended packages are missing (see above).
Recommendation: You may actually have installed packages which have obsoleted these, in which case you can successfully continue with the install. If you have not, it is recommended that you do not continue. Refer to the readme to find out how to get the missing packages.

I have the gold pack 2005 version installed so I think I can ignore this missing package..Jun03GQPK11i_Aux_Patch.

Is this a fair assumption?

Also,is the X11MotifDevKit package actually needed for running oracle?

Thanks again for your mails

Paul

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

hi,

Did you install the "B3394BA HP-UX Developer's Tool Kit for 11.11"?

You need to also install that and run the VALIDATE script (available from metalink) that will verify if your environment is "READY" for an Oracle 10g installation.

hope this helps too!

kind regards

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi,

thanks for the last 2 mails...

I'm trying to find out if we have a CSI number so that I can get onto the metalink website.

So are you saying that the Motif package is definately required for 10g to operate correctly?

I've downloaded the bundle and will install.

regards

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi yogeeraj

I've managed to track down our CSI number, you mentioned that I need to download/install the validation script.

Do you know exactly what I need to download from metalink?

I've had a search and not sure what I need

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Paul,
please re-read my second post. It has the Doc ID you need. Use the meatlink search to find the document 283731.1

In the Instruction Section there is a download link ....

Please also provide some more info on the HPUX version you are running and the Oracle verdsion you are trying to install.

Re: Oracle10g Install Errors

Hi Peter,

Apologies...I did read your mail and but for some reason thought that I'd looked at that article..obviously not!

I've downloaded the script as per the article.

I'm installing 10.1.02 on HPUX11i platform.

Cheers

Paul
