Process Checklist

[_] Verify availability of machine

# who
# ps -ef | grep ora
# ps -ef | grep ov

[_] Remove existing Oracle installation per instructions at: Uninstall Oracle

[_] Determine if adequate space is available to install Oracle and/or OpenView products.

# bdf -l

or

# bdf -t hfs

[_] Verify HP-UX version & get correct Oracle bits for installation

DO NOT SKIP THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
[_] Verify RAM is sufficient for version of Oracle being installed.

# dmesg

For Oracle 8.0.7 or OLDER, minimum RAM is 32 MB but 64MB is recommended.
For Oracle versions 8.1.5 or NEWER, minimum RAM is 128 MB.

[_] Add swap space if needed

# swapinfo
# export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
# sam &

Double-click on Disks and File Systems
Double-click on Swap

On the menu bar select Actions | Add File System Swap
Select a file system with adequate space avoiding /opt.
Minimum Swap = 0
Maximum Swap = The amount of swap needed to bring the swap to the requisite 2-3X RAM. (See long version of this document to determined recommended setting.)
When to Enable: choose both Now and At Every System Boot
Click OK.

[_] Modify kernel parameters in SAM. This is REQUIRED!!!

In SAM, go to Kernel Configuration | Configurable Parameters
Check the current settings for the following parameters. If the current setting is LESS THAN the values shown here, the setting MUST BE INCREASED.

SEMMNI 70
SEMMNS 200
SHMSEG 10
SHMMNI 100
SHMMAX 1073741824
NINODE 1563

Rebuild kernel. This will cause a system reboot.

[_] Mount the stthpsv1 depot.

# mkdir -p /mnt_nb/oracle
# mount stthpsv1:/data/mnt_nb/oracle /mnt_nb/oracle

[_] Automate the database startup and shutdown

Copy the startup/shutdown script to /sbin/init.d

# cp /mnt_nb/oracle/dbora /sbin/init.d/dbora
# chmod 755 /sbin/init.d/dbora

Create soft links to dbora in the appropriate run level directories to control when the OpenView instance is brought up and shutdown. The OpenView database must be shutdown after NNM is stopped and started before NNM is launched.

# ln -s /sbin/init.d/dbora /sbin/rc2.d/K061dbora
# ln -s /sbin/init.d/dbora /sbin/rc3.d/S935dbora

[_] Reserve port 1521 in /etc/services for the Oracle listener by adding following line:

listener 1521/tcp #Oracle Net8 listener

Re: oracle 8i instalation

In an operating system perspective, you need to
take care of what are all Bill mentioned. But in an
Oracle perspective, you need to do more than that.
There are 8i installtion manuals published in Oracle
web site. It also includes installation manuals for various
versions. The manual has a chapter on pre-installation
tasks, it should guide you completely and fully.

www.oracle.com;
Go to documentation, then go to Oracle8i, then to respective os platform. You will see the manuals there.

Re: oracle 8i instalation

1) Create /etc/pfs_fstab. In this file create an entry
/dev/dsk/cxtxdx /cdrom pfs-rrip xlat=unix 1 0
2) Start the pfs daemons by
/usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
/usr/sbin/pfsd &
Mount the CD using
pfs_mount /cdrom
This mounts the CD and you can install oracle from the CD.
To unmount the CD type
pfs_umount /cdrom.

Be aware that if you accidently kill the pfs daemons the server needs to be rebooted.
Hope this helps.
