Check free space. For installation of oracle you will need at least following space:
- 4GB at $ORACLE_HOME (etc. /oracle/YRS/102_64/)
- 100MB at DBSID (etc. /oracle/YRS/)
- 5GB at stage (etc. /oracle/stage/)
- 400MB at temp (etc. /tmp/)
If you already have other instances of Oracle installed you might need to remove/rename oraInst.loc file. Example of UNIX commands:
Download files from installation medium or get them from Oracle metalink. In case you are using Oracle to run SAP you have to download installation files from SAP marketplace because there are SAP specific differences included. Move these files to stage folder (etc. /oracle/stage/) from where the OUI (Oracle Universal Installer) will be executed.
Set DISPLAY variable. If you are using remote x-windows you have to set properly environment DISPLAY variable. Example of UNIX commands:
#example of C shell (csh) command
setenv DISPLAY a-700s504.ag.eu.jci.com:12.0
#example of Korn shell (ksh) and Bourne shell (sh) command
To run install OUI (Oracle universal installer) execute runInstaller as ora user. Example of UNIX command:
Verify if “Oracle Home Location” and “UNIX DBA Group” variables are correct. Uncheck “Create Starter Database” as this is not needed.
Enter full path of “Inventory directory” and specify “DBA group” name.
Now OUI performs prerequisite checks. If any errors occurs you can not continue. In this example we have just warning message about OS version that is not certified for this oracle version. You can ignore this warning.
Last check before installation. Confirm and click “Install”
Execute mentioned configuration script under root user. Example of UNIX command:
sudo su - install /oracle/YDQ/102_64/root.sh
When done click “OK”.
Click “Exit” to finish the installation.
Download latest relevant patchset from Oracle metalink. In case you are using Oracle to run SAP you have to download patchsets from SAP marketplace because there are SAP specific differences included. Afterwards install them using OUI (Oracle universal installer) tool. More details how to do it can be found in following articles:
- 10g patchset 3: Installation 10g – Patchset 3 (10.2.0.4)
- 10g patchset 4: Installation 10g – Patchset 4 (10.2.0.5)
Start the listener. Example of unix command:
Start the database in normal operations. Example of SQL commands:
Check status of all components. Example of SQL command:
