Re: about oracle8i

Unable to initialize threads: cannot find class java/lang/Thread
Can't create Java VM

This error message indicates that you have set the wrong value for the vm_args.classpath variable.
You might get a different system error indicating that it cannot find either (on Unix) or javai.dll (on Win32). If this is the case, add into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Solaris, or add javai.dll into your executable path on Win32.

The program may report an error that it cannot find the class Prog. If so, make sure the directory containing Prog.class is in the vm_args.classpath variable as well.

You should not set CLASSPATH environment variable and make sure that your JDK is in your PATH.

Please check installation guide for information.

Hope this helps!

Re: about oracle8i

Hi there.
Just one thing to avoid the pfs_mount stuff.
There are three patches, which make your life easier and leave pfs_mount behind.
For HP-UX 11.00

Yes, after install of these patches a rebbot is necessary.
But if you have rebooted the machine, you can mount Oracle cd's like this :

mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/cntndn /SD_CDROM

No more pfs daemons and all this.

You need to verify that all the HP patches required for an Oracle 8.1.6
Install have been applied to the box:

Required patches are listed in the 8.1.6 Release Notes for HP:

The following patches are required to install Oracle8i Release 2 (8.1.6) on
HP-UX 11.0:

* Patch bundle 9905
* PHCO_17556
* PHCO_17792 (Dependency for PHKL_18543)
* PHCO_18229
* PHCO_19491
* PHCO_19666
* PHKL_14750
* PHKL_17038 (Dependency for PHKL_18543)

Without the required patches installed the runInstaller will
fail to execute successfully.
