Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

I am trying to install Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium.

After creating oracle account,when I try to run the installer, the installer says
"Initializing Java Virtual Machine from /tmp/OraInstall2005-02-02_11-04-29AM/jre/bin/java. Please wait...
"

And doesnt proceed after that.

1) Do I need to apply any patches?
1.1) If so, what patches do I need to apply ?

2)The documentation that I have, only talks about patches for HP UX 11.0 . Would they be the same for HP UX 11.23 Itanium ?

I don't have access to metalink.

TIA.

Hi,

What is hardware platform that your oracle software support?

If you use release for PARISC, you cannot install for Itanium?

Hi Srivatsa,

The document you have is not for the correct version of OS. you should get patch list for HP-UX 11.23 on Itanium. The list of patches are available through Oracle documents. Check the pre-requisites on this documents.

I remember having a installer problem in HP-UX 11.11 with a similar problem. But am not sure if the problem is also encountered on HP-UX 11.23 systems.

With regards,
Mohan.

Re: Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

Hi,

Ivan,
The oracle software that I am using is for Itanium (not for PA -RISC)

Mohan,
Where can I find the correct version of the document.
The only document in the OTN site that talks about Oracle Installation for HP _UX is the document that I have.

Can you let me know about where I can get the document for HP UX 11.23.

TIA.

Hi,
another solution is to download the lastest version of Oinstaller. Try the lastest one and locate install files on your CD. Hope that can help.

Re: Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

Hi,
I need to use Oracle 9.2.0.2 because after the Oracle Installation, I need to install another software (OVO) which supposedly is compatible only with 9.2.0.2.

Yogeeraj,
I am also trying to get access to metalink.
Trying to find out what CSI is and how to get CSI to register into metalink.

Ravi,
And I am still not able to locate the Installation doc for 11.23 Itanium in the url which u had given.
In that url , there is a Heading :- "Oracle9i Database Release 2 Documentation for HP-UX Itanium"

Under that there is one Installation Doc :- "Oracle9i Installation Guide Release 2 for UNIX Systems: AIX-Based Systems, Compaq Tru64 UNIX, HP 9000 Series HP-UX, Linux Intel, and Sun Solaris"

And in this doc, there is only a patch list for HP UX 11.0 and not 11.23.

TIA,
S.Srivatsa Sivan

Re: Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

Hi Guys,
I downloaded the installer files again. This time from this location.

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/oracle9i/htdocs/hpia64soft.html
(not sure how different this is from the one I was installing earlier)

and I am at least able to get the Installer GUI, now.

Will get back if I have any more issues.

Thanks a lot for the help.

Re: Installing Oracle 9.2.0.2 on HP UX 11.23 Itanium

Hi

Due to a known HP bug (Doc. id: KBRC00003627), the default HP-UX (64-bit) operating system installation does not create a few required X library symbolic links. These links must be created manually before starting Oracle9i installation. To create these links, you must have superuser privileges, as the links are to be created in the /usr/lib directory. After enabling superuser privileges, run the following commands to create the required links:
$ cd /usr/lib

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libX11.3 libX11.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXIE.2 libXIE.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXext.3 libXext.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXhp11.3 libXhp11.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXi.3 libXi.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXm.4 libXm.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXp.2 libXp.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXt.3 libXt.sl

$ ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.2 libXtst.sl

then start the installation

Does any one have a solution to this issue. Even I'm facing the same problem with Oracle 9.2.0.2 for HP-UX 11.23 IA64.

Hi Srivatsa Sivan,

were you able to resolve this issue?


Thanks,
