How to disable HP Aries emulation in 11.23 IA64 OS

Hi All,

We are trying to start Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) 10.2.0.x on your HPUX Itanium server, but it fails with the error:

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Can't load library:
/tmp/OraInstall*/oui/lib/hpunix/liboraInstaller.sl
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(ClassLoader.java:1485)
at java.lang.Runtime.load0(Runtime.java:741)
at java.lang.System.load(System.java:811)

Changes
The HPUX Itanium is configured to use HP Aries, to emulate an HPUX PA-RISC environment
Cause
Oracle database software is not certified to run on HPUX Itanium servers which are configured to use HP Aries emulation.

As a result of the HP Aries emulation, OUI thinks that the server is an HPUX PA-RISC server (rather than an HPUX Itanium server) and so looks for liboraInstaller.sl (rather than liboraInstaller.so)

As per Oracle metalink following is the solution

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:

1. Disable the HP Aries emulation
2. Start OUI 10.2.0.x

Now the question here is how to disable HP Aries emulation in HP UX 11.23 for rx8640 server.

Thanks and Waiting for Suggestions.

Amit,

Thanks for the nice clear, concise and complete question!

As JRF indicates, it was just discussed.

For this SPECIFIC, and SHORT DURATION, purpose I would see no problem to rename (mv) any and all aries component you can find before starting the Oracle universal installer.

Once that launches properly, move it all back.

# mv /usr/lib/hpux32/aries32.so /usr/lib/hpux32/aries32.so_lame_oracle_request

This sounds like a silly, needles, regression in the Oracle OUI. I don't recall this being needed. I would urge you to escalate this to Oracle as their problem and suggest them to fix it rather then providing a incomplete suggestion for an unreasonable workaround.

Best regards,
Hein.

Let me check with DB guys and try out this if possible.

Hi All,

I just got the updates from DB team.
that they are now able to start the installation using older version OUI with 10.2.0.4 patch.

This is a workaround tried and it was successful.

Thanks for all your help.

Now able to start the installation using some workaround of using older version OUI with 10.2.0.4 patch.

The incorrect Oracle metalink has been removed.
