Re: Oracle 10g

Oracle can be a pain,
there is a lot of documentation but
the labels of each document are not always
self explainatory:

In your case I would look for a document
Oracle 10g for HPUX (sorry I don't know
the pdf part-number)

Good luck

Re: Oracle 10g

There should be checker tool that does a patch and environmental check and suggests what patches and kernel params need to be applied.

If I recall correctly .. it is part of the installer.

Re: Oracle 10g

Whoa!

You should have the September 2005 quarterly update installed.

You should get a current list of patches and required kernel parameters from http://metalink.oracle.com

My understanding is all of this is in the pdf install guide. Do you have one?

Re: Oracle 10g

The installer/pre-install script should automgically check your environment:


Checking recommended operating system patches
=======================================================================

Checking recommended operating system packages
Checking for X11MotifDevKit(0.0); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for X11MotifDevKit.MOTIF21-PRG(0.0); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Checking for Jun03GQPK11i_Aux_Patch(B.03.10.29); found Not found. Failed <<<<
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<
Problem: Some recommended packages are missing (see above).
Recommendation: You may actually have installed packages which have obsoleted these, in which case you can successfully continue with the install. If you have not, it is recommended that you do not continue. Refer to the readme to find out how to get the missing packages.
=======================================================================

Checking kernel parameters

Problem: The kernel parameters do not meet the minimum requirements (see above).
Recommendation: Perform operating system specific instructions to update the kernel parameters.

Re: Oracle 10g

hi rahul,

you must go through the pre-install tasks as indicated in your readme (found in the installation cd)


There is also the VALIDATE script that Oracle provides through metalink that will investigate into you system and provide you with a report of all required changes that you will have to make on your system prior to the installation.

e.g.
OS certified?
User in /etc/passwd?
Got EXTJOB User?
Group in /etc/group?
Input ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_HOME valid?
O_H perms OK?
Umask set to 022?
LDLIBRARYPATH unset?
SHLIB_PATH unset?
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?
Got OS packages?
Got OS patches?
Other OUI up?


if you need further help, do let us know.

kind regards

Re: Oracle 10g

Hi All
I tried to get info from metalink.oracle.com but i got the same list of patches which were given in the PDF of oracle installation, and the patches which are listed in the PDF cannot be installed on HP-UX ver.11.23. the swinstall says "No compatible products found for target system so the products cannot be seen." has anyone installed oracle 10G on HP-UX ver. 11.23? if yes please tell me what were the steps taken for the installation and which patches and bundles were installed on OS please assist..


Thanks and regards..
