Problem within 9iASr1 installation after 9i Database

I have installed 9i(9.2.0.1.0) on HP-UX 11.11B, now, I want to install 9iASr1 on the same box. But I met the link problem:

Exception String: Error in invoking target install of makefile /u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/9iASr1/6iserver/icache/lib/ins_icache.mk

And I removed the whole folder(/u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/9iASr1) and tried to install 9iAS again, but failed many times.
As i know that when installing 9iAS after 9iDB, i have to change ORACLE_HOME, so, before that, i already set ORACLE_HOME from /u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/9.2.0.1.0 to /u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/9iASr1, but failed again :(
So, I tried to set the ORACLE_HOME to /u02/app/oracle/pro
duct/9iASr1 (NOTE: it's '/u02', not '/u01'!).
The problem is, when i run the Oracle universal installer, it automatically created a folder '9iASr1' under '/u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/'! That's strange! Because all the environment variables are pointed to the new folder under '/u02', not '/u01'! including ORACLE_HOME,SHLIB_PATH,PATH ! How the installer know that path to create a folder('9iASr1') under '/u01/app/oracle/pro
duct/'???????????
Are there any other configuration file will affect this ?
Thanks!

Hi,

what about ORACLE_SID? Have you changed that, respectively checked the oratab file?

be happy,

Re: Problem within 9iASr1 installation after 9i Database

The fix is in the error message.

ORACLE_HOME and SHLIB_PATH are not correct for the installer.

You need to create a user with the appropriate environment for the install. That would NOT be the same user you used to install the database.

We typically create a user called ias, in the dba group(same as oracle user) with a modified environment, exactly what is needed in the install guide.

Note that ias can not be installed onto a system that has any prior version of ias installed, Oracle told us that during a planning session.

Makes an upgrade kind of a PITA.

Re: Problem within 9iASr1 installation after 9i Database

you should also check /etc/oratab which is a configuration file which should have entries for ORACLE_HOME.
