Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Robin,
1. have you got the correct software
2. Are you running the install as the correct user within the correct group
Check the permissions on the reported file.
3. have you got everything set up for the graphical install

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Software version : Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.1.0) for HP-UX PA-RISC

User is Oracle...uid=205(oracle) gid=102(oinstall) groups=21(dba)

File is -rwxr-x--x 1 oracle sys 1335 Mar 22 08:45 runInstaller

As far as the graphical install goes, Im using reflection X to connect to the interface.

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Hi Peter,

Im new at this unix stuff....

I changed the mode on that file and it ran this time with the following error..

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2006-03-22_03
-13-21PM. Please wait ...sh: /prod/Oracle_10g_client/install/unzip: Execute perm
ission denied.

Error in writing to directory /tmp/OraInstall2006-03-22_03-13-21PM. Please ensur
e that this directory is writable and has atleast 69 MB of disk space. Installat
ion cannot continue.

I checked the tmp directory...drwxrwxrwx 10 bin bin 2048 Mar 22 15:19 tmp

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Robin,
seems to me there is a general problem with protection on /prod/Oracle_10g_client directory.
Do a :
find /prod/Oracle_10g_client ! -user oracle
to find the files not owned by oracle.

Correcting this problem may also resolve your /tmp directory problem.
Also please check you have enough free space under the /tmp mount point (bdf /tmp)

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

hi robin,

1. make sure /prod/Oracle_10g_client/install/unzip has execute attribute set

2. Make sure /tmp has enough space available
what does "bdf /tmp" give?


revert

kind regards

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

hi again,

for my recent 10g installation, i had defined the following environment variables:

export TMP=/var/tmp
export TMPDIR=/var/tmp
export TMP_DIR=/var/tmp
export TEMP=/var/tmp


hope this helps too!

kind regards

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Hi,

unzip x attribute set

tmp was

'/dev/vg00/lvol4 204800 18871 174464 10% /tmp'

This obviously isnt big enough. Can I set the Oracle to use another dir?

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

Hi Robin,

Oracle 10g installations expects your temp directory to have at least 400 Mb of free space. TMP or TEMP - used by installer to override the default location of /tmp

You set it to any directory that has space as long as you specifies in your environment variable and exported it.

$ TMP=/tmp2; export TMP
$ TMPDIR=/tmp2; export TMPDIR

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

hi robin,

as mentioned by indira above, you need to define another TMP or TMPDIR. Another file system which has more space. Please refer to the installation guide for more information on the amount of disk space that will be required.

good luck

kind regards

Re: Oracle 10g Execute permission denied

I managed to set the environment so that a different TEMP directory was used and the installation went well.

Many thanks from a dedicated MS user just starting out on Unix.
