I had already updated my system using December 2006 paches. Also I'd intaller JDK 1.5 and tuned kernel parameters (as recommended by Oracle pre-installation tasks).

But when I trying to install Oracle DB by runInstaller-script, I receive several errors and warnings. To this post I included log-file (see attachment), where it possible to see, that there is error with OUI-11108 and some patches (PHSS_32508, PHSS_32509, PHSS_32510 and PHSS _32731). I can't install patches, because in my system there is HP aC++ A.03.73 compiler, but patches want to update HP aC++ A.03.60. I don't know, where can I get trial version A.03.60 of this compiler. Thus, I can't apply patches.

What to do with OUI-11108 - I don't know, really... More over, I don't know where to get this package...

So, I pressed "Install"-button and during installation I received several errors. such as:
"Error in invoking target 'ntcontab.o' of makefile '/va7410/lun1/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/network/lib/ins_net_clients' See log-file for details". Possible variant are [Help-button] [Retry-button] [Continue] [Ignore] [Cancel]. This happens when ProgressBar indicates 72%-73% (Linking 'Oracle Net Required Support Files').

After that, appears window with title "Oracle Universal Installer: Configuration Assistants."
There was a table with 3 columns "Tool", "Status" and "Type":
"Oracle Net Configuration Assistant"-"Succeeded"-"Recommended"
"Oracle Database Configuration Assistant"-"Failed(see details)"-"Recommended"
The 3rd assistant wasn't ran because the 2nd assistant fails with error "Error in Process /va7410/lun1/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/orapwd".
This error appears when the assistent tried to create database and configure it.

Thus, I can't install database and I don't know how it is posiible to solve my errors.

If you have reach experience or know what should I do, please, help me. I really need your help!!!

Thanks in advance!

Re: Oracle 10gR2 - problems with installation

you can bypass the prereq check by using:
runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

About your OUI_11108 please see:

We need more info about your makefile problem, but I suspect it's the aCC compiler.
Please check your InstallAction and make.log files.

Please also read: on how to reward any useful answers given to your questions.

Re: Oracle 10gR2 - problems with installation

Hi Yuriy,

Just ignore the warning messages. These patches are used for compiling the Pro*C/C++ etc if need them. I had the same situation but the installation completed.

Good luck.

Re: Oracle 10gR2 - problems with installation

Thank you very much for your advices!!!

Nevertheless, not looking at your advices, the problem is still kept...

My steps:

1. As a usual, I tried to install the database ignoring all warnings and errors. The result was exactly the same - when started Oracle Database Configuration Assistant, it generates an error "Error in Process /va7410/lun1/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/orapwd".

2. I tried to run Installer by the following command:
$ runInstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs
After installer starts, "Pre-Requisites" window appears again, and again I saw warnings and errors about not installed patches and OUI-11108. Of course, I ignorred this warnings and continued the installation. But when progress bar indicator showed 72%, the error window appears - "Error in invoking target...". I ignorred again this error again and continued with the installation. And again I met with Oracle Database Configuration Assistant, which failed...

3. Now I'm trying to find the necessary version of compiler, install it, and apply all necessary patches. Maybe it helps me (to say the true - I don't know :)

Maybe I should do something else?

P.S. Now I have installed compiler "HP aC++ C.03.70.VAL1" (Trial version). I suppose, I have to find and install such compiler, but with version "A.03.60"?

Re: Oracle 10gR2 - problems with installation

Hello all!

I have some news :)

I just registered as HP DSPP-partner and then I downloaded HP aC++ and HP ANSI C compilers :) Then, I successfully installed patches PHSS_32508, PHSS_32509 and PHSS_32510.

Then I ran Oracle installer and it again said that some patches are missed. I looked through the log-list and found out that it is PHSS_32731. I tried to install it, but swinstall said that it is already installed in my system (it is very strange, because I can't find this patch by swlist...). I also tried to use "Reinstall" option, but it doesn't helped too...

So, I ignored this warning (about PHSS_32731) and pressed "Install" button. Taa-daa-m !!! The Oracle 10g was successfully installed !!!

When progress bar indicated 72%-73% (Linking "...") there wasn't any errors! Installation process was successfully ended :)

I'm very happy, because right now we can use
Oracle EM and iSQLPlus by web-interface. And my chief is happy too :)

So, I suppose, when Oracle Installer wants aC++ and ANSI C compilers - they must be installed in target system. If you don't know where to download this compilers, see

I'm ensured - this advice can help anybody, who has errors.

P.S. This topic will be closed in 2 days.
If you know, what should I do with PHSS_32731 and how can I install (or reinstall), please, drop a line.

Best wishes,
Yuriy V. Vorobev
