How can I see if the Oracle 8.1.7.0 that I have installed is 64 or 32 bits ???

Hi all,

I did not make the Oracle installation. Now I have to install an Oracle patch but I don't know if the installed version is 64 or 32 bits.....

SO: HP-UX 11.0
ORACLE: 8.1.7.0

Thanks in advance.
Catch and release !!!!!!

Hi,

Do a file command on the oracle executable.
If it says ELF-64 .... it is 64-bit

Start svrmgrl and look at the output.
In output line beginning with:
Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release...
you see on the end "Production" or "64bit Production".
Only "Production" (without xxbit) means 32bit.

file $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle

it should return something like:

ELF-64 executable object file - PA-RISC 2.0 (LP64)

if its 64-bit, otherwise you will get:

PA-RISC1.1 shared executable dynamically linked -not stripped
