Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

Your mount is failing:

The "rr" is not an option that you can use in this case:

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

Hi,
you need to use the pfs_mount command with this procedure:


- vi /etc/pfs_fstab



insert the line:

/dev/dsk/c3t2d0 /cdrom pfs-rrip xlat=unix 0 0




Start the pfs daemon

- nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &





- nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &



- mkdir /cdrom


- /usr/sbin/pfs_mount /cdrom







- at the end

/usr/sbin/pfs_umount /cdrom
and kill the pfs process

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

I would check for mount and cdfs patches

PHKL_28060 adds Rock Ridge extensions for 11.00.

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

As Enrico said, pfsmount is the correct way to mount Oracle CDs
but dont forget when you're done to unmount them also using pfs commands

#pfs_umount /cdrom
The manual said the program requires Windows 95 or better, so I installed Linux !

Shalom

Whoa!

Stop with pfs_mount

Its outdated and not needed to mount oracle media.

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


Just change the device to accomodate the actual path of your CD-rOM

ioscan -fnCdisk

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

Hi

PFS is no longer supported on HPUX , so :

On HP-UX 11.11 :


First install the follow patches :



PHCO_25841 - s700_800 11.11 Add Rock Ridge extension to mount_cdfs(1M)

PHKL_26269 - s700_800 11.11 Rock Ridge extension for ISO-9660

PHKL_34153 - s700_800 11.11 CDFS cumulative patch

Then :

# mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/cxtydz /cdrom

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

thx..
pfs_mount work OK and now i am able to run the installer correctly, but now i get an error saying that

please check the directory /tmp/otainstall_some_date_time
has 59 MB free and that you have permissions

i checked the permissions, they were rwx for the current user (oracle), also i have more than 1 GB of free space on /tmp directory,, any one has openion regarding this???

Re: oracle installation over hpux 11

Hi Ahmed,

As I remember from my previous experience, any user should have write permission to /tmp directory. So you could try to give 777 permission to /tmp directory for a while. Because your oracle user tries to write some installation files oracle user and oracle group. After the installation completed, you can take it back if you want.

chmod 777 /tmp

If i remember any trick for the installation, i will write it again.

Best Regards,
