We are trying since last two days to install oracle 9i (9.2.0.2), on HP-UX 11.11 rp3440.
after we runInstaller, we pass the first and scend screen, selcting orainventory path, and selcting the group that will be used for orainventory, we selected dba group, we receive this error (group dba unable to setup orainventory.you many have proper permission).

Does the dba group has write permission on the Inventory Directory you specify on that screen?

Hi

find the oraInst.loc file.
I believe this should be in /var/opt/oracle
check permissions
check content
You should have the location for inventory_loc
Check ownership and permissions of such directory.

Yes and we have worked around that, we gave /opt/oracle/oraInvetroy permission full access 7777.

Re: Intalling oracle 9i (9.2.0.2)

Hi

Could check Metalink doc Note:1014462.102 "OraInventory does not Exist or is not Writable"

This is for oracle8i nut I believe this can be applied for 9i

Hi again

also did you check Metalink Note:201023.1 "HP-UX: Quick Start Guide - 9.2.0 RDBMS Installation"

It points to another document Note:189256.1 "UNIX: Script to Verify Installation Requirements for Oracle 8.0.5 to 9.2 versions of RDBMS"

Re: Intalling oracle 9i (9.2.0.2)

hi,

you should have run the InstallPrep.sh script before the installation.

The script has a rule set that performs the following tests:
* OS certified?
* Other O_Hs in PATH?
* oraInventory perms
* /tmp adequate?
* Swap (in Mb)
* RAM (in Mb)
* SwapToRAM OK?
* Disk Space OK?
* Kernel params OK?
* Links and libs OK?
* Got ld,nm,ar,make?
* ulimits OK?
* User in /etc/passwd?
* Got OS packages?
* Got OS patches?
* Other OUI up?
* Group in /etc/group?
* Input ORACLE_HOME
* ORACLE_HOME valid?
* O_H perms OK?
* Umask set to 022?
* LDLIBRARYPATH unset?
* SHLIB_PATH unset?


kind regards
