12c Installation check error

Hi All,

I'm preparing for an upgrade of Oracle from 10.2.0.5 to 12.1.0.2 and have run into a little issue.

I've run the following command line

./RUNINSTALLER -oracle_base /oracle/SID -tmp /oracle/SID/temp -check

After encountering this error about /tmp free space

Free Space - This is a prerequisite condition to test whether the minimum required free space is available on the file system.

This is a prerequisite condition to test whether sufficient free space is available in the file system. (more details)

Expected Value

: 5GB

Actual Value

: 644.4023MB

But that didn't work, so I set environment variables $TMP and $TMPDIR as per the documentation from Oracle https://docs.oracle.com/database/121/AXDQI/toc.htm#BABIHAJA and yet it still complains.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks

Craig

    Dear Craig,

    Are you referring to SAP oracle upgrade guide? I did not find the exact command you ran in the upgrade guide.

    Best regards,
    James

    ./RUNINSTALLER -oracle_base /oracle/SID -tmp /oracle/SID/temp -check

    For this command to work, In fact the /oracle/SID should have the free space as I believe the tmp is pointing to /oracle/SID/temp. The RUNINSTALLER will extract a set of files and scripts in a directory when it is started. I have faced this in the past and fixed it by extending the /oracle/SID file system space.
