Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Anyone have experience in installing the oracle 9.0.1 on Hpux11.0? I meet the following problem when install the oracle9.0.1, the following is the detail steps:

As user root, mount the CD-ROM
a> start the Portable File System(PFS) mount request server as follows:
/usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
b> start the Daemon as follows:
/user/sbin/pfsd &
c> create a mount drectory, for example:
mkdir /SD_CDROM
d> list all disk devices to locate the device file for your CD_ROM drive:
ioscan -funC disk
e> Use a system editor to add the following line to /etc/pfs_fstab.
/dev/dsk/c5t2d0 /SD_CDROM pfs-rrip xlat=unix 0 0
f> insert the Oracle9i CD-ROM 1 of 3 into the drive and mount it as follows:
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount /SD_CDROM

then we met the following message:
NFS server a500-1 not responding still trying
NFS server a500-1 not responding still trying
/usr/sbin/pfs_mountd: pfs_mountd.rpc (pid = 8406) not responding, retrying...
/usr/sbin/pfs_mountd: /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd: pfs_mountd.rpc (pid = 8406) not responding, retrying...
NFS server a500-1 not responding still trying

/usr/sbin/pfsd: /usr/sbin/pfsd: pfs_mountd.rpc not responding, retrying...
NFS server a500-1 not responding still trying
NFS server a500-1 not responding still trying


How can do with the above infomation?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Hi Shi,
The NFS server function must be enabled for PFS to work. And use PFS to mount the cdrom. Make sure you have both lockd and statd running in the background. As the root user run these commands.

Check whether NFS is running & start them.
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.server start
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

Get the locks required for PFS.
# /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd
# /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd

Start the PFS.
# nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
# nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &

Now try and mount the cdrom as you did.
Check to be sure CD-ROM device is properly NFS mounted as per operating system instructions.Once proper mounting on a UNIX system is verified, the problem may be due to a faulty CD-ROM drive.

Metalink says with HP 9000 Series HP-UX if the Universal Installer hangs with errors â Error: NFS server not responding, still tryingâ The fix for this will be Install a new CD-ROM drive.

hi,

have a look at Merijn's HP-UX software for ITRC members at URL: http://www.cmve.net/~merijn/

search for: pfs_mount

hope this helps!

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

1) For certain you can do this install.
2) pfs_mount is out of date and you don't need to use it at all.

/usr/sbin/mount -F cdfs -e -o ro,rr /dev/dsk/c3t2d0 /cdrom


Change the device and it will mount correctly.

Do not forget all kernel changes and patches before you start.

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Shi,
Follow Indira's suggestion, the last error you mentioned is because of the following

Edit the file /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf file and make sure that the NFS_CLIENT and NFS_SERVER are set to 1, as shown below

NFS_CLIENT=1
NFS_SERVER=1

Now you should be able to follow Indira's suggestion and start them.

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Hi Shi,

have you mounted the CD successfully. What is the source of your installation software. Is it from a an CD or a Download.

When you list in the /SD_CDROM directory you should find the executable runInstaller.

If you have problems with pfs_mount then as Steven E mentioned use mount as follows
mount -F cdfs -o cscase /dev/dsk/c?d?t? /SD_CDROM.

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

oops...... submited too quickly. there is more!!!!!!!

When you say runinsta, the cdrom is not mounted correctly. If the CD has not been properly mounted , you will face this issue. It looks like the cdrom files are being truncated to 8 characters. Now umount the SD_CDROM and mount using the following.

Mount â F cdfs â o cdcase /dev/dsk/c5d2t0 /SD_CDROM

This should mount the cs and when listing the files you should see the full file name.

If you still see the files having only 8 letters (runInsta), then you may not be using the original cdrom. You might be using a copy which was not copied correctly. If this is the case, please use the original Oracle cdrom.

I hope this helps

Hi,

After remount the CD with the following commmand: /usr/sbin/pfs_mount /SD_CDROM,
the result is the same:
a500-1:/SD_CDROM 0 0 0 0% /SD_CDROM

Then I stated the ./runInstaller scipt, this time, the jave GUI can started normally. Now I followed the structions, when doing the 17%, the installation paused with the following message:

Error in writing to file /opt/oracle/oui/ewt.jar...

From the help of topic windows, it seems the disk space related problem, but I checked the disk space, there are enough sapce left...how can I do now?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Now I met a new problem. Following is the detail information:

During the installtion, the systen wanted me to insert the #2 CD to the driver. I pushed the button of the driver and try to get out the #1 CD, but I can not. So I check the system, I found the following:
a500-1:/SD_CDROM 0 0 0 0% /SD_CDROM

I try to use the pfs_umount /SD_CDROM to umount the #1 CD, but the following message was displayed:
# pwd
/
# pfs_umount /SD_CDROM
umount: /SD_CDROM: Device busy
#

How can I do now? Thanks a lot!

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Hi Shi,

I would recommend you exit the installation and clean up the logs and files.

Mount the CD's all three of them one after the other, copy the contents on to a file system and then install form there. During the installation, when it propmts for the disk-2, disk-3 files location you can specify the directory.

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Hi Indira Aramandla,

The media change related problem had been solved. I use the following command:
fuser -ku /SD_CDROM

Then, pfs_umount /SD_CDROM, insert the #2,
pfs_mount /SD_CDROM, now the installtion is
going on...

Thanks for your answering letter...Nice day and happy new year..

Re: Oracle9.0.1 on hpux11.0 installation?

Shi,
If you have adequate free space on a file system, i would always recommend that you copy the contents of the CD-ROM there and install it from the filesystem. It will generally be faster and you would not have to go through much of this :-)

Take care

Bye for now
