Post by Anders Gunnar » Fri, 25 Sep 1998 04:00:00

Hello World,

I'm driving a IBM RS/600 AIX4.3.1.0
have installed Oracle
and runs the script
something is going wrong when executing this script,
please give me some advise about it,

the file /usr/local/oracle/ does not exist !!!

best regards
Anders Gunnare



Runing Oracle8 script ...
The following environment variables are set as:
    ORACLE_OWNER= oracle
    ORACLE_HOME= /usr/local/oracle/
    ORACLE_SID= 8914
Are these settings correct (Y/N) [Y]:

Enter the full pathname of the local bin directory [/usr/lbin]:

Checking for "oracle" user id...
ORACLE_HOME does not match the home directory for oracle.
Okay to continue? [N]: Y

Leaving common section of Oracle8

chown: /usr/local/oracle/ A file or directory in the
path name does not exist.
chmod: /usr/local/oracle/ A file or directory in the
path name does not exist.

Best regards H?lsningar
Anders Gunnare

1. ias 9i - Portal - and


I try to install Portal (Minimal Selection of Oracle ias 9i ) on
Solaris and
got some problems:

- Oracle 8.1.7 database works fine
- listener.ora works fine (hacked as suggested in
- tnsnames.ora works fine (hacked as suggested in
- environement is set fine

I installed Oralce 8.1.7 and as suggestion of I
installed Oracle
9i ias in a different $ORACLE_HOME

1st problem : near the end of the installation the script does
not work -
              I will get the following error.log

              "Please delete any log and trace files previously
                created by the Oracle Enterprise Manager Intelligent
                Agent. These files may be found in the directories
                you use for storing other Net8 log and trace files.
                If such files exist, the OEM IA may not restart."

The script looks like to delete any logs and traces itself and I do
not get any message of
success. Is there anything ok ?

2nd problem :
Installing the portal server with : If I set $silent=false
the error.log can not
connect to sqlplus as sys (I typed in the correct pass)and hangs up
with the following error.log

--- begin ----
INSTALL_DEBUG : Arguments passed to Configuration Assistant

ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist

Enter user-name:
---- end ----

If I set $silent=true the hangs up (as the error log
reported) with  a java.lang.NullPointerException.
(Error log to long for the newsgroup)

Following questions :

- somebody got the same problems and solved it ?
- are there possibilities to check and change the Sys - Pass in the
code for the ?
- somebody checked whether there must be a differenz $ORACLE_HOME
- somebody got a good Web Side which shows to handle the problem
( do not !!!)

Thanks for any advance
