    You just need to download the Oracle and SAP installation media and start the installation with the sapinst tool.

    There will be a point sapinst will stop and ask you to install the Oracle software under orasid.

    You need to start the RUNINSTALLER under orasid.

    Everything is mentioned in the installation guide.

    Pickup the SAP installation guide for the SAP Netweaver release you want for the Oracle database on HP-UX from here.

    It has the complete information.

    do you have any other oracle database installed on this host.

    If yes then please check the below note.

    Make sure to set the inventory locator (Note 98252 - Installing two Oracle databases on a host) when a new Oracle instance is installed.

    Also you need to run the precheck.

    If you want to write the logs in any specific directory you can used this .

    setenv TEMP <location of the direcory>

    dont forget to check the umask

    should be 022.

    you can set it using the below command

    umask 022
