Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Hi,

 

We are facing a problem in the company while installing Oracle on our Itanium based 64 bit HP_UX 11i v3 installed machine. 

 

The problem is when linking netclient executables.  The error is posted below.

 

The weird thing is when i look at the log for error i see  :  "Unsatisfied symbol "ntcontab" in file /u01/app/oracle/product/11.0.2/lib//libclntsh.so"

 

as you see there is double-slash ( // ) after the directory name "lib" . I dont know why it produces a path like that. The library file aimed to be find by oracle is under /u01/app/oracle/product/11.0.2/lib. But the double-slash causes the installation miss the file and throw an error. 

 

I set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to $ORACLE_HOME/lib where ORACLE_HOME is set to  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.0.2 and i am not putting any extra slashes after environment vairables. 

 

I also attached the error windows to this post.

 

I have no idea what causes this erorr arise but i am in need of urgent help to figure out how to solve this  problem.

 

I hope to hear back from you.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Oh and one more thing.

When installing it ,  Oracle says the patch PHSS_37042 is missing. I dont know if this OS patch has  antyhing to do with this path problem. I couldn't find the patch anywhere on the net or on the server.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Thanks for the reply. I guess we do have the contract ( i am actually new here :) ) I will look into it.

So it is about the patch or ?

I acutally have another server machine which has Oracle installed on and it doesn't seem to have the patch either.

I have no clue here.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Ok iam shocked.

 

I only increase the size of temp directory and all of a sudden it worked. I never thought it would be about temp size increasing. 

 

Or it was something else and i couldnt get what :S 

 

Well i am glad it is solved but i would be happier if i knew how it was solved.

 

It cant be about increasing temp size, can it ?

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX (unsatisfied symbol error)

I doubt that PHSS_37042 is your problem:

PHSS_37042 11.31 hppac (packed decimal)

 

I'm not sure why you can't find that patch?

 

>as you see there is double-slash (//) after the directory name "lib"

 

These are not the droids you are looking for.

That's due to sloppiness in the makefile.  There is a "/" at the end of several -L paths.

 

You should be talking to Oracle about your unsat.

 

>It can't be about increasing temp size, can it ?

 

It's possible.  There could be some unchecked errors that cause files to be truncated.

If you want to be a detective, put things back and use tusc to see where the failures are.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX (unsatisfied symbol error)

I will definetly look into it to find out what exactly the problem was.

 

But since i didnt do anything except increasing the temp size it must be about it.

 

Well i should have thought increasing it earlier :) But it is working now anyway and i am happy about it :)

 

Thanks for the replies.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Shalom,

 

Oracle installation checks the OS for patches it needs.

 

It checks kernel paramters and other factors ir requires for normal operations.

 

What is supposed to happen is if any of these factors are missing, the install stops cold and tells the installer what the issue is.

 

Due to the nature of a complex operating system sometimes patches get superseded with new patches and the oracle instaleller is not updated to know this. Therefore there are ways to bypass requirements of the oracle installer. Sometimes the installer does this itself.

 

What has probably happened here is the is the installer bypassed a requirement and continued and later in the process missing software caused the install to fail.

 

I recommend going back to the oracle install guide, following the pre-requisites carefully and trying again.

 

Also note for HP-UX SHLIB_PATH is used for most installations like this, not LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This may have changed though since I last worked one of these installations.

 

It is important also to have an application user for the install. Only steps specifically requiring root should use root user.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the correct variable to use for Integrity.  Unless dealing with PA32 under Aries.

Shalom again,

 

Oracle allowes you to set a variable and redirect its temporary directory from /tmp to another file system with sufficient space for the install.

Re: Oracle 11.2.0.2 on HP_UX ( unsatisfied symbol error )

Well i solved this problem installed Oracle. Then i restarted the server. Now the server won't start.

Checking it over HP İLO admin interface. It says something like sas controller error. I am truly tired now.

Setting the environmental variable 'TMPDIR' allows *most* Unix commands to specify any directory for temporary, "work" space.  This is part of the Unix standard at large.
