Installing Oracle 10g release 2 on RHEL4

I am new with Linux and Oracle, and I have been assigned to install Oracle 10g Rel 2 in RHEL4 OS.
I have checked and installed missing RPM's and created group users, passwd, configered Kernel, set Shell limits and finally created directories on root as so,
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle
chown -R oracle:oinstall/u01/app/oracle
chmod -R 775 /u01/app/oracle
After, I mount the CD on root
mount /media/cdrom
After mounting is complete i enter into oracle user and do the following
su - oracle
cd /media/cdrom
However, I receive the following message : Olite installation requires ORACLE_HOME to be set. PLease set it and retry again.
So I set the following like so,
export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle
export ORACLE_SID= demo1
I than get the following message.
Olite installation requires JAVA13_HOME to be set. PLease set it JDK 1.4.1 install area and rety again.
I am not sure what JAVA13_HOME is but I am wondering if it is related to some Mobile sync. Also, could somebody help me and advise if I am going in the right direction here?
Many thanks in advance.

Hi Alex
Can you please control that ?
JAVA13_HOME will be the location for your JAVA home. You can check the path for your java installtion, either 1.3 or 1.4 and set the path accordingly. Usually in Linux the path will be some thing like /local/java/jdk1.4.2.
TNS_ADMIN should point to $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin
Please read that also
Let us know if it helps you.

    Should ai just install the db using scripts and run the neccessary .sql scripts instead of going through dbca?

    This appears to be because of low semaphores setting. Did you reboot your server after making the /etc/system parameter changes ?

  • Cant install oracle 10g release 2 on unbreakable linux

    i have being trying to install oracle 10g re 2 on unbreakable linux.after installation i open the url for bot em/isqlplus and it works.but after restarting the system i type the command
    emctl start dbconsole
    it says command not found
    pls help me any 1.

    There is so much you aren't telling us. For example, if you created a user "oracle" to be the Oracle software owner and install the Oracle software with, there will be a directory named /home/oracle. Inside this directory will be a file called .bash_profile. You can put lines like export ORACLE_HOME=, export ORACLE_BASE= and export ORACLE_SID= so that your environment is set up when you login. Jeff Hunter has a lot of information like this on his website. Check it out.

  • How to install Oracle 10g Release 2 (10.2) for RHEL 5

    Hello Guys,
    I want to install Oracle® Database 10g Release 2 (10.2) for Linux x86-64 in RHEL 5
    Please experience people guide me ... please don't give me (Oracle® Database Installation Guide 10g Release 2 (10.2) for Linux x86-64) link i already gone through but it's to much in depth and not able to understand what is that i can use from this.
    My Machine is having 12GB RAM and it's 64bit machine.
    So please provide me steps that only relate to my oracle installation. I just want to do simple installation without database and my machine not have graphical interface also.
    Send me your generic steps that i can run on my machine. if you want information about my system specification please ask.
    So please people help me out... i am really thankful to you guys .....
    Thanks ,

    That also good idea man. thanks for your valuable advice.
    I have confusion here ...
    3. Changes to be made to Kernel parameters
    After installing above mentioned packages, we need to change some Kernel parameters and make them match to Oracle requirements. Parameters which should be changed are shown below
    shmmax     2147483648
    shmmni     4096
    shmall     2097152
    shmmin     1
    semmsl     250
    semmns     32000
    semopm     100
    semmni     128
    file-max     65536
    ip_local_port_range     1024 65000
    rmem_default     1048576
    rmem_max     1048576
    wmem_default     262144
    wmem_max     262144
    We do all these changes in the /etc/sysctl.conf file by adding these lines to that file:
    kernel.shmmax = 2147483648
    kernel.shmall = 2097152
    kernel.sem=250 32000 100 128
    net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range=1024 65000
    Question: What will be my value for this as my system is 64bit so this all parameter is ok if i put all straight ?
    ----> Setting Shell limits for the Oracle UserTo improve the performance of the software on Linux systems, you must increase the following shell limits for the oracle user:
    1. Add the following lines to /etc/security/limits.conf file
    oracle soft nproc 2047
    oracle hard nproc 16384
    oracle soft nofile 1024
    oracle hard nofile 65536
    2. Add the following lines to /etc/pam.d/login file
    session required /lib/security/
    session required
    3. In order to use Oracle Software, we need to make a change in “oracle” user’s buffer size and number of opened file descriptors. In order to do it, we add below lines to /etc/profile file
    if [ $USER = "oracle" ]; then
    if [ $SHELL = "/bin/ksh" ]; then
    ulimit -p 16384
    ulimit -n 65536
    ulimit -u 16384 -n 65536
    Question: this things also i need to change ?

    It appears that the installer is saying that RedHat 3, SuSE 8 or 9, and UnitedLinux 1 are supported. That would imply that RedHat 4 is not (you can validate this on Metalink).
    You could try telling Oracle to ignore the system prerequisites with the -ignoreSysPrereqs parameter, but that's not a great idea if you are expecting support.

    I am facing such a problem. I want to install Oracle 10g release 1.
    I am using linux 86_64
    os is RHEL ES 4 UPGRADE 5 X_86_64

    Is there any way to install this oracle version.
    Can u please suggest which version os is suitable for this.
    please suggest.

    WHICH 10gR1 software do you use? Oracle provides different versions, you need for Linux x86-64 from the OTN download page.
    By the way I would install 10gR2.

    Hey Guys,
    I am Srinivas Here who had been trying to install Oracle Database 10G on Windows X86 on Windows XP Professional.
    If you have Win-XP Professional as your Operating System. Do not download the oracle Database using windows - XP Professional because XP will block certain installation files while downloading. In your machine install Windows 2000 or any other Windows version as a dual boot. First the download Database Zip files using your other version of Windows Operating system and then when you Unzip the files it will create a folder called Database and all the files will be present in it.If you want to store the same to cd for having to install the 10G Rel 2 database through CD then copy the contents of the unzipped database folder and store only the contents of the database folder and write them to CD's. Please see to it that while writing on cd's do not copy the folder itself .
    After this, restart the system and get into windows XP Professional (Your XP Professional should be with Service Pack 2 in order to install 10G Database on windows XP - The Basic requirements for Oracle Database 10G on Windows X86).
    I request you to check the software and hardware requirements from oracle Documents before you install the Oracle Database 10G on Windows x86 as well as Oracle Database 10G on Linux X86 or any other operating systems.
    Finally, After you run the Oracle Universal installer in the last you will get messages for all products installed Success and finally it will ask the password for DBA and open the password management and give the password and reenter password and on the left you will have to unlock the items you would like to use.
    In the last it will give you various URL links for Isqlplus, DBA, Enterprise Manager and a log report stored into oracle directory stored in your C:\Program files\Oracle folders. The correct link will be given at the end and you will have to watch the installation carefully.You can find DBCA and other options working. Try login in to Oracle through Command prompt, Sqlplus prompt availabe in Start ->Programs->Orahome10G->application Development-sqlplus as well as login through isqlplus link- Before this you should login at the command prompt as SYSDBA. YOU CAN SEE THAT YOUR DATABASE IS NOW WORKING IN WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL.

  • Install oracle 10g on windows 2003 server issues

    I am very new to oracle
    I installed oracle 10g release 2 Enterprise Edition on a Win 2003 Server.
    I got all oracle services running after install
    But I can not connect to the database from another machine which is on the same domain
    (as I learned from the forum)
    I turned off windows firewall (or with the firewall turned on add port 1521 to Exceptions list) .
    I restarted listener serivces and I even reboot the machine Still I can not connect to the database from another machine.
    What am doing wrong here?
    We are on a tight schedule now any help will be very appriciated.

    Firewall-related problems normally throw ORA-12535, not ORA-12170 (the message a timeout occurred is the same). Description for this error is:
    Error:     ORA-12170 (ORA-12170)
    Text:     TNS:Connect timeout occurred
    Cause:     The server shut down because connection establishment with a
         client failed to complete within the allotted time interval. This
         may be a result of network/system delays; or this may indicate
         that a malicious client is trying to cause a Denial of Service
         attack on the server.
    Action:     If the error occurred because of a slow network/system,
         reconfigure the SQLNET.INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT parameter in
         sqlnet.ora to a larger value. If a malicious client is suspected,
         use the address in sqlnet.log to identify the source and restrict
         access. Note that logged addresses may not be reliable as they can
         be forged (e.g. in TCP/IP).
    Hostname in listener.ora has a domain included, while in tnsnames.ora has not. Y Can you ping the host? Does tnsping work? To get more detailed informations you may turn on tracing on the client side (in sqlnet.ora) and the server sid (in listener.ora).
