oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hello,
I am installing oracle8.1.7 to a B 1000 class work station. I have tried different ways of installing but all the thime I get "Execute permission denied" I have checked the permissions and it seems to be alright. I am NOT installing from a CD I have tar.gz file so I guess I need to run the mkdb.sql from svrmgrl but even after I extract the file I get the same "Execute permission denied" for the svrmgrl file I have no idea what to do.
I have cried pulled my hair thinking what to do bout this :)
Any one any suggestions

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hi,
Probably a stupid question, but did you create the user "oracle" and the group "dba" prior to starting the installation ? When you untar the files, do you see them as being owned by oracle:dba ? If not you might have to change the userid/groupid to the numbers displayed instead.

Hope this helps,

A life ? Cool ! Where can I download one of those from ?

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

This is not the typical way to install Oracle and is fraught with peril. If a assume that ownership and groups are correct, I'll bet that you need to do two things. 1) Relink the executables 2) Run root.sh as root.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Attached are instructions for installing a version of Oracle that you downloaded from Oracles web site. These particular instructions are from version 8.1.6 for Itanium, but I think they should be the same for what you want to do.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

I think, there is something wrong with binaries.

I guess, you have Oracle Enterprise Edition 64-bit??
Verify that your architecture is supported (workstation).

Other things are patch-level, i remember "linker patch", that is REQUIRED for 8.1.7 64-bit....

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Yes I am running a 64 bit B1000 class HpUx11.00 workstation. I am not sure, one of you experts should be telling me if there is support or not. I have seen that someone else had the same problem and it was a linker problem. I have downloaded the general release patch bundle does it contain the
PHSS_24303
ld(1) and linker tools cumulative patch????
if not where can I download the linker tools cummlative patch.
Once again I am not using the Oracle CD I am using the .tar.gz file that I downloaded from the oracle site.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hi

You'll nedd to install the HP-UX linker tools cumulative patch PHSS_22514 or later, and the relink oracle:
cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
relink all

The patch can be found here on this very site:

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hi,

I don't no the cause from your problem, but I have got a little idea.
Did you extract your tar.gz file as root? May be, there are a few s-bits in the install files.
I would try it in this kind.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

Hello,
I have downloaded and installed the linker patch PHSS_24303 but could not issue the command "relink all" (if that is what you meant Andreas) coz it gives mo "not found". But after I installed the patch PHSS_24303 it still gives me the same problem "Execution permission denied"
What do i do next?????

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

There are some parts of an oracle installation that require root access. Some script I don't remember the name, I have have add to give my dba's root before for this install.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

No I did not extract as root I extracted as user oracle who is member of group dba.
So what do I do next, any suggestions.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

I extracted the .tar.gz files using user "oracle:dba" but I have tried executing the svrmgrl using "root" whos is also part of dba but no luck I get the same exception both ways I ahve created a link in the /usr/bin/svrmgrl owner "oracle:dba" even then it gives me the same error.

Re: oracle 8.1.7 installation

After I install I am able to run $ORACLE_HOME/mkdb/mkdb.sh and $ORACLE_HOME/mkdb/lsnrconf.sh perfectly without any problems but then when I go to $ORACLE_HOME/bin and try to run svrmgrl bang "Execution permission denied".
