Oracle 32 bit

Hi all,

I have Oracle upon a cluster, with HP-UX 11.00 64 bit, and I would like to know how can I see if this Oracle version is 32 bit or 64, if I should read some configuration files.

Many thanks in advance, Angelo.

Re: Oracle 32 bit

Not sure if this is the best way, but if you do:

file $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle

it should return something like:

ELF-64 executable object file - PA-RISC 2.0 (LP64)

if its 64-bit, otherwise you will get:

PA-RISC1.1 shared executable dynamically linked -not stripped

Life is what's happening while you're busy making other plans

Re: Oracle 32 bit

Just log in as the oracle owner (oracle9 and start svrmgrl. The start message would read:

-Oracle8 Enterprise Edition Release - Production
for a 32 bit Oracle installation

-Oracle8 Enterprise Edition Release -64bit - Production
for a 64 bit installation.

Only by ignoring what everyone think is important, can you be aware of what everyone ignores!

Re: Oracle 32 bit

Hi Andreas,

I have version of Oracle, not Oracle 9, I don't have the message you said to me.
Santosh's command is useful.
