Re: where is InstallPrep script for Oracle 10g Instllation on HP UX

hi Darshan,

In fact, the Unix InstallPrep Script should be run prior to installing the Oracle 8i to 9i DataServer. This script checks for all known items that will cause the install to fail. As from Oracle 10g, it is called Validate.

this script is downloadable from Metalink.
http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/docs/hpux_10gR2_hcve_rdbms_091805.tar

basically, the script performs the following tests:
* User in /etc/passwd?
* Got EXTJOB User?
* OS certified?
* Group in /etc/group?
* ORACLE_HOME valid?
* O_H perms OK?
* Umask set to 022?
* LDLIBRARYPATH unset?
* SHLIB_PATH unset?
* Other O_Hs in PATH?
* oraInventory perms
* /tmp adequate?
* Swap (in Mb)
* RAM (in Mb)
* SwapToRAM OK?
* Disk Space OK?
* Kernel params OK?
* Links and libs OK?
* Got ld,nm,ar,make?
* ulimits OK?
* Got OS packages?
* Got OS patches?
* Other OUI up?

hope this helps!
kind regards

Hi Yogiraj,

Thanks for you help...

one more question Pls,During 10g Installation I had not Installed some of the HP patches, hence during installation system has given some error(file not found,can not invoke file etc....).

At the end of installation ORACLE net manager tool was failed to install.
but other products installed successfully.
will this create the problem for running dbca, netca and other???

Also my ORACLE_HOME/network/lib32 is totally empty.will this create problen for runing dbca ,emca and other tools?? I know its very lengthy but.... need help

hi Darshan,

it is important that you install the required patches because if otherwise, some of the tols may work by chance and you may end up with unpredictable problems from time to time.

i believe you can install the HP patches without having to reinstall the RDBMS software again.
