Re: Compatable version of oracle with hp unix 11.31

Hello Jag14!

Oracle does include all necessary downloads and installation instructions on their download page, see below.

To keep it short:

11i v3 (PA-RISC)

Enterprise: 8.0.6 - 11gR1
Standard: 7.3.2 - 11gR1


11i v3 (Itanium)

Enterprise/Standard: 9.2 - 11gR1


On both pages, there is a link to the certification matrix page where you can check availability of Oracle products for different platforms (OS/Arch).

Kind regards,

Re: Compatable version of oracle with hp unix 11.31

thanks for your response,

The following link gives only details of patches only for oracle 10 ( )

But we are trying to install oracle 10g ( in Hp-unix Itanium 11.31.

Can you tell us what patches are needed along with oracle 10g ( to install in Hp_unix Itanium 11.31.

Please explain in details,
thanks in advance,

Re: Compatable version of oracle with hp unix 11.31

The only patch required to run 10gR2 on 11.31 is PHKL_35936. When you execute runInstaller you will need to use the -ignoreSysPreReqs argument.

You can always check this sort of stuff on Oracle's interactive cerification pages - start here:

Re: Compatable version of oracle with hp unix 11.31

Hi Jag, if you are using one of the later Itanium releases such as Montecito or Montvale, you first need to install an updated Java release, then install, then install - the latter is the earliest 10gR2 release supported on these newer platforms.

Oracle note 400227.1 "How To Install Oracle RDBMS Software On Itanium Servers With Montecito Processors" has the detail - do you have access to Metalink/My Oracle Support?

Hope this helps! Keith.
