Hi,

this is a bug with the Oracle script which need to be modified

1) How can i verify the installation was OK ?

If the 10.2 support 11.31, then your installation might be sucessful

2) Hereis the error that i am getting when starting sqlplus
$ ./sqlplus
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

## Check if you have set the variable ORACLE_HOME to where the oracle was installed

# echo $ORACLE_HOME

## You could install any X-emulator software like X-manager, Reflection-X and then start your installation

Dear Avinash ,

Thanks for the reply!
Please tell a solution which will establish "is successfull"(i would have created
a test DB has the odbc GUI would have come up)
I have set the oracle home correctly in profile.
I alredy have xmanger as an x term window and exporting the display too.

Re: oracle 10.2 installtion on 11.31

Shalom,

This message is straightforward.

Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<
Problem: Oracle Database 10g is not certified on the current operating system.
Recommendation: Make sure you are installing the software on the correct platform.


If its not a certified OS, you can't do it.

Though it may be an Oracle bug because I believe that version of the database IS supported on 11.31.

Re: oracle 10.2 installtion on 11.31

It's supported but the installer has not been updated AFAIK. Issues like this are not new for the installer on HP-UX. Heck, I think it still looks for obsolete kernel tunables.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Re: oracle 10.2 installtion on 11.31

I installed oracle on a 10.20 system and then created a tarball of the /opt/oracle directory and restored it to a 11.31 system after creating oratab and dba group and oracle users worked fine.

Re: oracle 10.2 installtion on 11.31

To install, you can also change the file oraparam.ini.
There is a line under "[Certified Versions]" stating: "HPUX=B.11.23", change it to "HPUX=B.11.23,B.11.31"
Below is another section on 11.23 "[HPUX-B.11.23-required]" that you have to copy and modify for 11.31.
Then the installer will run.
In the installer you then have to confirm that you checked the patches and kernel parameters.
