Re: ./runInstaller: outputs cd: bad argument count

Ajay,
the line is question is:
cd $CMDDIR/install/hpunix
./runInstaller $* &

Where are you running the runInstaller from?
Is your PATH set up correctly?
Please review the oracle guides.

Re: ./runInstaller: outputs cd: bad argument count

Hi Ajay,

"bad argument count" error could be to do with the path.

This could be caused by the environment variable path definition. May be you are picking up another executable from somewhere else in the PATH.

Re: ./runInstaller: outputs cd: bad argument count

hi,

consider typing the full path at the command line:

e.g.

/SD_CDROM/install/runInstaller.sh


hope this helps!

Re: ./runInstaller: outputs cd: bad argument count

switch to root directory(/), using full path at the command line is good idea, perhaps during install period need to
change the cdrom disc, if didn't use full path, you will unable to umount the cdrom.
