About memory issue during installing Oracle 11g on Windows Server 2003

Hi, all
When I installed Oracle 11g on Windows Server 2003 which the server is a virtual server, Oracle only can detect 2G memory.
But there are 4G memory with my server.
I want to know if the Oracle 11g's new feature or the virtual server lead the issue.
Also , I want to get your help to resolve the issue, thanks a lot.

Let me get this straight:
You have created some virtual machine using someone's unknown VM software.
You have installed Windows Server 2003 (perhaps, but not confirmed 32-bit) to that VM.
You have allocated 4GB of memory to the VM (we guess ... not sure I'm ready to take your word on this)
You are attempting to install Oracle 11g (presumably 11gR1 32 bit for Windows) in the VM
And the Oracle (installer?) seems to be reporting that you only have 2GB RAM.
Since I personally have installed Oracle 11g 32bit for Windows on Windows 2003 server with 4GB RAM and had no issues, I would be investigating the (unknown) VM environment.

  • Can't get past OCX error when installing ODAC 11g on Windows Server 2003

    I have been trying to install ODAC 11g on Windows Server 2003 and can't get past the OCX error when registering oravsdbgeng11w.dll. I've read every message on this forum even remotely related to this problem and tried every solution offered. I have done a clean install into a new Oracle home, and made sure Instant Client is always included. All service packs and automatic updates have been installed. For what it's worth I have successfully installed ODAC 11g on Windows XP Pro.
    If anyone out there has been able to get this up and running and would care to share the wisdom that would be greatly appreciated.

    Michael, as you already noticed, every time I have seen this issue it has been because ODT was being installed into an Oracle home where no client exists, or perhaps installed into an old oracle home where the client was an old version (eg Oracle10), or the client was broken. Usually though, the user unchecked the instant client checkbox during the ODAC install.
    So you say you checked instant client and you still got the error? That doesn't add up...
    Are you using 32-bit windows? If you are using 64 bit windows be sure to tell us.
    Why don't you try avoiding using instant client at all, in case it is somehow not getting installed properly.
    You can do this as follows:
    1) Under the download links on OTN, go to the database download page.
    2) Download the Oracle Database client 11g for Microsoft Windows
    3) Run this installer and Install ODP.NET 1.x and 2.x into a new Oracle home from this client install, but nothing else. If ODP.NET is not listed there (it has been a long time since I looked at that) than just install a minimal Oracle client install.
    4) Close the installer
    5) Go back and install ODAC and this time choose "Oracle Server" radio button during the install (rather than the client install)
    6) Install ODT and ODP.NET at least and be sure they are being installed into the Oracle home created in the first steps above.
    This will avoid use of Instant Client and will hopefully avoid the OCX error. Let me know if this solves your problem.

  • JRE Error : while Install oracle 10gR2 on Windows Server 2003

    I am trying to install a Oracle 10gR2 on windows server 2003.
    I have unziped the files and when I run the oui.exe it gives the below error:
    cannot find any matches for wildcard specification "../stage/components/oracle.swd.jre/*.jar
    Error : JRE missing in Scratch Path
    I tried changing the oraparmaini file but it did not allow to make any changes.
    Not sure if its looking for any particular java files.
    What should i edit ,to specify the java location.

    What exactly did you unzip? This error occurs if there are several zip-files extracted to different target locations. But - if I remember correctly - 10gR2 database is only one zip-file, so you should not face this issue. JRE for OUI is part of the downloaded software,so you don't need to specify a location for JRE, OUI knows where to find this.

  • Needed steps for installing oracle 10R2 on windows server 2003

    Hi to All,
    Can anybody give me steps for how to install oracle 10R2 on windows 2003 server in production environment and what is the preinstallation task and postinstallation task.
    Thanks and Regards
    Mohd Khaja

    There is one pre-requisite that is missing from the documentation - ensuring that the administration team is adequately trained.
    Since you are asking this question, I wonder whether your team is properly prepared for, and aware of, the possible nuances or changes from default that might be relevant to your environment.
    For example, is your team familiar with the concept of Flashback Recovery Area and how it may fit, or conflict with, your production needs? Use of RMAN? Location of Oracle software Inventory and implications in your OS-level backup? How to configure both the software and the database to meet your Service Level Agreement requirements.
    The referenced document is an excellent first step, as it asks some of the questions. If you are serious about production stability, you want to go through that as well as get appropriate level of expertise in your shop.

    If there are forums you would recommend to a completely new oracle sysadmin please let me know.
    Many thanks.

    I recommend you read the '2 Days DBA' manual in order to get a basic understanding. It may be necessary to uninstall the current installation(s), especially the last error message looks like a corrupted environment.

  • Problems installing OBIEE 11g on Windows Server 2008 64 bit

    Hi, I'm trying to install OBIEE 11g on Windows Server 2008 64 bit (standard edition, SP2), and it's blowing up running the installer. The installer gets past the first couple of "info" screens, but blows up prior to coming to the first "real" screen with an error:
    Microsoft Visual C++ Assertion Failed:
    Program: ...
    File: ../../../src/share/native/sun/font/t2k/t2kstrm.c
    Line: 132
    Expression: pos <= t->maxPos
    Has anyone seen this and/or have an idea how to work around this? Note that I did do the prerequisite download / install of the 2005 Visual C++ 64 bit libraries.

    Just to close the loop on this thread, this does indeed seem to be some sort of font / java issue on our servers. I've been completely unable to get the install to work using the GUI. However, if I run it from command line using the -silent and -response paramaters along with a proper response file, the install went perfectly. I'm going to continue working the SR with Oracle - don't want to be stuck using -silent mode when things get more complicated, but at least now I can move forward.
    If anyone else has a better workaround - please let me know. "Silent" mode is workable, but difficult and time consuming.

  • Can't connect Forms 6i to Oracle 11g on Windows Server 2008 SE

    Hi everyone,
    I have Oracle 10g working pretty well with Forms 6i, but now I have installed Oracle 11g on another server and I'm trying to connect Forms 6i to my other Oracle 11g server, but Forms 6i never gets connected. Is there any trick to make it work? I have check the upper cases and other things related with lower and upper case passwords, but nothinh happens.
    Can anyone please help me?

    Its probably the Oracle client that installs with Forms 6. Try connecting to the database using SQL Plus from a Forms workstation. If it fails I would install a newer client and switch the Oracle Home on all the workstations.
    ( Provided it tests out )
    I would probably try using the Net Configurations Assistant in your Oracle Start Menu group with all combinations I could think of before I added a second client to the mix.
    Of minor interest :
    The Windows version might put the hurt on you. This may or may not help that :
    Tough combination.
    Best Regards

    Legacy Applications and Oracle 11g
    So I'm sorry to say you are out of options. I also checked the Forms Forum and the few posts there on Forms 6 ( Obsolete in 2004 ) all agree. Forms 6 and Oracle 11 database do not play together.
    I hope at least I saved you some time.

  • Installing Oracle 10g on Windows Server 2008

    I want to install Oracle 10g on Windows Server 2008. As per Oracle, I should install and then apply patchset
    For that, one has to sign in to metalink which is possible only for customers. I am
    using Oracle only for educational purposes for now. Is there any other way of using Oracle 10g on Windows 2008?

    Of course if you don't have support and for educational purpose only , you should compromise a little by either install other OS or get virtual machine like VMware.
    Or stay with, that should work in most cases.
