Oracle 10g validate script results


I ran the validate scripts on HPUX to determine what needs to be done before installing Oracle 10g on HPUX.

I have a couple of questions about the results:

1) Got EXTJOB user?
Status: Failed

The description says that I need to create an EXTJOB user. Now is it mandatory to create an EXTJOB user, if so what is it used for?

2) Umask set to 022
Status: Failed

Where do I put this umask 022?. In my oracle account .profile ?

3) Kernel parameters:
What is the EXECUTABLE_STACK parameter?. Should this be set to 0.

4) Should SHLIB_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH be unset?

5) OS patches:

PHNE_31097 or its successor
PHNE_32477 or its successor

Now what is the successor of PHNE_31097 and PHNE_32477?

Thanks & Best Regards

Re: Oracle 10g validate script results


1.) Not sure, probably part of the listener.ora or tnsnames.ora or a "user" needed to support it. Could have to do with the password file one generates in many orace installs. The document that comes with 10G does fully explain this.

.profile for oracle is sufficient for the umask.

The default iz zero, leave it alone.

3) LD_LIBRARY_PATH is used on Solaris and Linux not HP-UX. SHLIB_PATH should not be unset, it should be set to whatever value the install manual requires.

4) Click patch database, search those patches by patch ID, take them and DEPENDENCIES, try and avoid 1 star patches, they are not widely tested enough to make me comfy. If both patches are three star and you have a bi-annual patch update installed dated after their dates, then the patches are already in. I doubt this or the oracle tool would not be making the report.

Successors will be listed to the right of the patches you put in the itrc patch database search.

>SEP: 3) LD_LIBRARY_PATH is used ... not HP-UX.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is valid for IPF and PA64.
