Oracle 817 CD, pfs_mount, remote installation

I have pfs_mounted Oracle 817 CD in a local B2000 with hpux 11.0 and I actually want to
install it on a remote L3000 server running hpux 11.0. As pfs_mount uses NFS, I get the following error while exporting /cdrom on local B2000 box.

"Too many levels of remote in path"

Experts, please help. Thanks in advance!

Work hard and be realistically optimistic.

Re: Oracle 817 CD, pfs_mount, remote installation

Hi,

Do a pfs_exportfs to export the cdrom mount point and the mount it on the remote system.

Hope this helps.

Re: Oracle 817 CD, pfs_mount, remote installation

Hi Shiju,

I know this error is because of NFS. I am actually looking for a solution to "install Oracle on a remote hpux server while mounting (pfs_mount)the CD on a local hpux box". Is it possible or there is any tricky way out?

Thanks anyway for your time and help.

Sanjay,

U r the man! It is a very big fix - a perfect solution; I believe a lot of other people will also be benifited with this solution in future.

Tks and rgds,
