Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

Want to know if Oracle 9i can run under
a K460 server running in 32 bit mode. Also how would one go to 64 bit mode on the server.

Re: Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

I think Oracle9i is 64 bits only.
Therefore you must upgrade your OS 1st to 64bits.

To go 64 bit you would first have to check if the K460 runs the 64 bit OS. I think it does. If so, you would have to do a new, cold OS install choosing 64 bits.

Then you can install the 64 bit oracle 9i. I hope you have lots of memory.

After that you'll need to do a word size conversion on your data. I'm attaching a procedure.

Re: Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

Hi SEP


we have a k460 with HPUX11.0 64bits here (but no Oracle9i installed).

# model
9000/889/K460
# getconf KERNEL_BITS
64
# file /stand/vmunix
/stand/vmunix: ELF-64 executable object file - PA-RISC 2.0 (LP64)

Re: Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

Hi,

if the OS is 64 bit then oracle 9i could be installed.

#getconf KERNEL_BITS

if the o/p is 64 then you can go ahead with 9i installation,
#model

check in /etc/supported_bits whether the model supports 64 bit kernel or not.

I would prefer cold installing 64 bit OS than upgrading
never give up

Re: Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

Yes, I made the assumption that the OS installed in the thread was 32 bit.

If the OS is 64 bit its possible to run either database, 32 bit or 64 bit.

You know what they say about assumptions:
It makes the assumer the first three letters of the word.

:-)

If one is converting a 32 bit database to 64 bits a word size conversion is necessary. The binary change requires a data conversion.

Re: Oracle 9i on K460 server running 11.0

The K460 has a PA-8000 processor and wiull definitely load 64-bit 11x. Make sure that you are up to latest firmware and then load the 64-bit version of the OS.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
