missing oracle libraries (.sl)

I have an HP-UX 11i ver 2 server with Oracle 10.2.0.4 for Itanium installed. The $ORACLE_HOME/lib directory on contains .so libraries. My app is looking for .sl libraries. Is this because I have Oracle for Itanium instead of Oracle for PA-RISC?

Shalom,

Oracle does have different releases for Itanium versus PA-RISC at that version of the database.

You need to have the correct Oracle install set for your CPU architecture prior to installation.

Re: missing oracle libraries (.sl)

What is the output of 'file /path/to/app'? That will determine whether it's an IA app or PA-RISC app. 'chatr /path/to/app' will show what libraries it needs to load, and 'ldd /path/to/app' will determine whether it can load all of them (and their dependent libraries).

FWIW, .sl is the convention for shared libraries on PA-RISC, and .so for IA.

You will probably need to install the PA-RISC oracle client if the app is a PA-RISC app.

Thanks Stephen.

The server is itanium and the oracle install is for itanium. Is it because of the CPU architecture that all the oracle libraries are .so files?

Thanks Earl.

The app is a PA-RISC app.
=> file multiserver
multiserver: ELF-64 executable object file - PA-RISC 2.0 (LP64)

I had my suspicion that I would need the DBA to install the Oracle for PA-RISC. Hopefully she won't give me too much grief. Do you know of any issues with running Oracle for PA-RISC on an Itanium server? I know PA-RISC are supposed to work on Itanium servers.

I'm not aware of any issues. I would check Oracle's metalink and see if any searches for Aries turned up (PA-RISC binaries on IA are translated by the ARIES subsystem into native IA code at runtime).
