Re: Oracle10g installation error

Can you tell us where you were in the install guide?

The install guide is very complex and every minute detail must be followed to the letter. The machine and kernel check almost always leads to patches and kernel changes, some of which make no sense to veteran HP-UX administrators.

Make sure you have lots of space and have followed the guidelines for allocation of shmmax.

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Hi Girish,

There is a same issue on Oracle Metalink:
http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=FOR&p_id=517285.994

It seems to be a Java problem.
Maybe you can create an ITar on Oracle Metalink.

Cheers,

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Hi Girish,

You can register free on Oracle Metalink. If you have to do more (DBA) Oracle-related stuff, it's quite handy!
You can also try http://asktom.oracle.com. He's a sort of "Dr. Phill" on Oracle issues.

By the way, it is defenately a Java problem.
How did you "score" the software? If you downloaded it, search for a navailable OUI (Oracle Universal Installer) patch on otn.oracle.com. Else phone your software distributer where you ordered the CD-ROM pack and ask them. If I'm right, only Oracle Certified Partners can distribute Oracle software, so they should have found out the issue before you did...

Good Luck,

Renarios

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Useful metalink access usually requires a service contract with oracle.

Java:

If its a java issue, go to http://www.hp.com/go/java

Make sure your java is on the support matrix, which is on metalink or technet.oracle.com or otn.oracle.com

Make sure ALL patches relavent to your system and java version are installed.

Re: Oracle10g installation error

A little question: On which O/S are you installing the Oracle software?

You can encounter problems if your installation directory is too deep.

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Hi Girish,

The error â error while loading :generalQueriesâ that you are experiencing while loading Oracle10g

Could be due to the base inventory directory location or due to the OUI version that you are using.

As other posts mentioned, how did you get the software (downloaded or you ordered the CD-ROM pack from the software distributerâ ¦.?). Please read the install guide and as Steven mentioned every minute detail must be followed.

If it is the OUI version then you can get the latest version of OUI from your local support centre or download or log an itar in metalink.

If it is due to the inventory directory location, check your base inventory directory. Check the ownership of the directory. When you invoke the OUI for the first time, you must specify a base inventory directory. During installation, the OUI creates the base directory and some subdirectories. The files under the base directory are used by OUI for tracking what products are installed.

If the base directory is missing then error box will appear that states: â an error during loading library GeneralQueriesâ . You could try removing the orainst.loc file and restart OUI again and see.

For more info check the installation log for errors. A text log of the OUI installation is stored in a file
with the following naming convention :installActionsYYYY-MM-DD_HH_MM_SS-.log and
oraInstallYYYY-MM-DD_HH_MM_SS-.err

I hope this hel

Re: Oracle10g installation error

hi,

Since the installation, verifies all the requirements at start of the installation, we can assume that all the requirements are met.

As IA mentioned above, to be able to troubleshoot further, we should look into the Installation log file.

Please post the exact error details from the logfile...

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Hi Girish,

Java i/o exception error looks like something to do with the â Install Java Runtime Environment (JRE)â verify to see if the latest version of JRE is installed as it is an installation requirement.

CRS (Cluster Ready Services) is a new feature for 10g Real Application Clusters. And remember CRS HOME and ORACLE_HOME must be installed in DIFFERENT locations. CRS is REQUIRED to be installed and running prior to installing 10g RAC.

Re: Oracle10g installation error

Hi All,

Thank U for ur valuable replies. I tried upgrading the Java SDK version to the latest one but still the same problem existed. But itied to install the CRS from CD directly instead of a staging area and I found that the installation is going fine.
