Installer problem - Oracle 11g on Redhat ES 5.1 (x86)

I'm trying to run the "runInstaller" script to install Oracle 11g onto my Redhat ES 5.1 (x86) machine and the following error is being reported:
Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

I copied all the installation tree to /tmp/oracle and ran chmod -R 777 * to make sure I could see all the files.
I've been logging onto the server as the oracle user.
I've also got Java v1.5.0.6 installed
I've run out of ideas - anyone able to assist ?

I've sorted it. Was originally copy unzipped install files from DVD into /tmp but think there must have been some corruption. I now copied and unzipped the install file onto the RH machine and it's now working.

  • Installation problem - Oracle 11gR2 Windows XP Professional SP 2

    Hello everybody!
    I have a problem at the installation moment of Oracle 11g R2 on Windows XP Professional Edition with SP 2. Please help me!
    This is my computer's hardware configuration:
    CPU Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz x86
    RAM: 1 GB
    Hard disk: SATA 180 GB
    Graphic Card: PCI-Express nVidia 7300GS 256 MB
    Network connection: LAN / Internet connection: ADSL
    O.S. Windows XP Professional Edition SP 2 (and installed .Net framework 2.0)
    Antivirus: AVG 9.0 free edition
    WEB Browser: Internet Explorer / Mozilla Firefox.
    I tried to Install Oracle 11g R2 2 times, so I have formatted my computer 2 times because after the installation process, the Oracle Universal Installer don't respond.
    Every time I installed the O.S., drivers, Antivirus, .Net Framework, Ms office, everything works properly.
    I configured the network connection to use a fixed IP Address, I created the environment variables ORACLE_BASE, ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_UNQNAME (1st time its value was the same value of ORACLE_SID, 2nd time its value was the database global name) and then, I start the SETUP program, it run properly, but at the moment of finish the database creation this message appears: execute the commands: 1) define ORACLE_UNQNAME in database unique name 2) emctl.bat start dbconsole.
    Through SQL Plus I can connect to the database, execute queries, the listener is working, but the database console service doesn't work. If I try to start it since command prompt (emctl start dbconsole) I get a message about the specific error 2.
    What can I do??
    Thanks in advance!

    Good morning! I hope you are fine.
    I appreciate your help.
    Jean-Valentin: I opened a DOS box (logged as the Administrator User who installed Oracle), I changed the ORACLE_SID value and the result of the commands:
    emctl stop dbconsole
    emctl start dbconsole
    emctl status dbconsole
    was this one:
    C:\Oracle_base\Home_ODB11gR2_Aug1st2010\BIN>emctl stop dbconsole
    OC4J Configuration issue. C:\Oracle_base\Home_ODB11gR2_Aug1st2010/oc4j/j2ee/OC4J_DBConsole_oraserver11_MGN not found.
    Definitively, change the value of ORACLE_SID is not right. Then, I changed the ORACLE_SID again to its original value and the result was:
    C:\Oracle_base\Home_ODB11gR2_Aug1st2010\BIN>emctl stop dbconsole

    Using the ORACLE_SID original name, at least the emctl shows the OracleDBConsoleMGN as not started when I try to stop.
    schavali: When I executed the Oracle Installation, the database configuration assistant showed this message:
    The Enterprise Manager configuration was success with this warning: Error at start up database control, execute the commands: and you know, here start our history.
    And the 3 steps of the database configuration assistant shows this:
    Copying database files : Success (correct mark)
    Creating and starting up database instance: Success (correct mark)
    Finishing database creation: Success (correct mark)
    I'll try to check the information of the link:
    and then, I write again.
    This cannot be... Oracle always works properly... is powerful... what is going on???
    Thanks guys, have a great day!

  • APEX 3.2 installation on oracle 11g

    I am having trouble installing APEX 3.2 on the 11g enterprise edition, I installed the 11g and the EM was working fine then I tried to follow all the steps in the instalation guide of Apex 3.2 but it does not run after all the steps are completed.
    I would like to know if there is another way to install apex different from the provided in the guide orif anyone is having the same problem and found a solution to it.

    Dear friend,
    first of all what is your name???!!!
    The ORACLE 11g installaion packet includes *3.0 apex* and it installs automatically (Enterprice. version) APEX 3.0. All things you must do is, unluck apex user and set APEX port,
    Then you can access APEX,
    Then you can upgrade it to 3.1.2 please read unlucking user & port setting and upgrade steps from installation manual
    Good luck

    This is for the first time i am encountering this kind of error on 11g. Half way through installation i get this error.

    Please help.

  • Installation of Oracle 11g Release 2 on Windows Server 2008 R2

    When I tried to install 64-bit Oracle 11g Release 2 on a system running 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2.
    One of the system pre-requisites failed with the following error message:
    Checking operating system requirements ...
    Expected result: One of 5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0
    Actual Result: 6.1
    Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<
    Problem: Oracle Database 11g is not certified on the current operating system.
    Recommendation: Make sure you are installing the software on the correct platform.
    I presume 6.0 is Windows 2008 Server and 6.1 should be Release 2.
    Does this mean that this version is not compatible with Server 2008 Release 2?

    No one inside Oracle is permitted to say, or pre-announce release dates for legal reasons.
    Which is why I gave you the link - so you could monitor for yourself.OK, thanks...
    I was just hoping there was an official release date and I just couldn't find it.
    Is there any information about features in 11gR2 for Windows available yet?
    Or can you maybe tell me if it will be possible to mount the new "database filesystem" like we can do on linux?
    I remember oracle did something similar with Oracle ifs (Internet File System) back in Oracle 9i. (or was it 8i?)

  • Installation of Oracle 9i on Redhat Linux 7.3

    I'm trying to install oracle 9i on Redhat Linux an facing some problems. To start with I had no problem in installing and creating the database, The listener.ora and tsnname.ora files created are similar to what i have on windows 2000( Since i was not able to make oracle working on linux, i tried installing on windows, so as to check and create database for temporary work.), But when i go to the console and type the commands: sqlplus /nolog it says bash: sqlplus:command not found.
    2. When i try clicking sqlplus executable file in the bin directory, i get a message that 'Could'nt find the program'.
    3. Where can i find the bash_profile file.
    4.I'm able to run the database configuration assistant and create new databases without any error.
    I would appreciate if some one can help me out.Also are there any special commands, for this is my first experience on linux.

    If your shell is bash (which I guess it is) you need to set the environment variables either per user in a file called ~/.bash_profile (probably /home/oracle/.bash_profile) or globally by making a file /etc/profile.d/
    you can list .files with ls -la
    for now you can either type /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin/sqlplus or type
    export PATH=${PATH}:/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin
    to add oracle to the path in your current session

    It will bre great if anyone can help me with some ideas and concepts here.

    I have downloaded Oracle 11G R2 version from Windows and extracted it in Windows and copied it into DVD after extraction in two folders. Now I am mounting that DVD in Solaris 10 installed in my VMware . I made a new directory named as 'installation ' under /export/home/oracle and copied the folders from DVD to 'installation' folder. Now I am entering installation folder and try to do ./runInstaller as 'oracle ' user and getting the error mentioned before.

  • Installation of Oracle 11g 32 bit Client on Windows 7 (32 bit) laptop.

    I just got a new Laptop with Windows 7 (32 bit) operating system.
    Has any one successfully installed Oracle 11g client on in Windows 7 environment and if so what are the steps involved.
    In the past I have never had any trouble installing an Oracle client on a Windows work station.

    Oracle hasn't officially supported 11g on windows 7. folks have installed it successfully too. Check the below threads.

  • Installation of Oracle 11g on Windows 8

    I am trying to install Oracle 11g Database in my windows 8 system.
    Whenever i click on the setup.exe the installer window pops up and nothing happens.
    I am running it as an administrator.
    I need some help on this. I have tried to run in compatibility mode as well but help.

    Certification of Win 8 is expected with a future release - see
    You have three options
    1. Wait for this future Oracle release
    2. Downgrade your OS to a supported version.
    3. Install VM software (like Virtualbox), create a VM, install a supported OS in the VM, then install 11gR2 in the VM - see my blog (linked in my profile) for a detailed example
