    For Linux installation ( Red Hat ) the SAP note 722273 (release 3 and 4 ) is the primary source for any issues which arise. You will find a section of the message that reads:

    ...the installation process aborts in "Create sap license" with error message "library iamodora missing", some libraries needed are missing to work around this, either after it aborts or event before starting the installation, unpack the libraries into the installation directory using:


    What the note does not tell you is the file referenced above does not exist on any of the installation media. So, the backup command is the following ...

    1. Copy the installation media dvd to a directory on a files system

    2. change directories into the sub-directory which contains the executable (sapinst)

    3. run the command sapinst -extract

    4. It will unpack the missing libraries into the same directory where you executed the command..

    5. I copied these libraries to /oracle/<SID>/<version>/lib

    6.. All was right with the world... the installation continued...

    This procedure should be attempted/repeated if any ia*.so libraries are not available during the installation.

    Hope that helps. 😊
