Oracle Installation on windows 2008

I have a question regarding installation of ORACLE DB on windows 2008 x64 OS.

We have got following dvd's as shipment from SAP for oracle DB.

Here are the labels

1. ORACLE 10.2 RDBMS Windows Server on IA32 32bit Windows Server on IA64 64bit Windows Server on x64 64bit

Number 51031678

2. ORACLE 10.2.0.4 Oracle Failsafe Server 3.4.1.5 for Windows Server 2008 on x64 64bit

Number 51036975

Now as the first DVD was giving error for not being supported on the platform , we installed the DB from 2nd DVD for DEV and QAS box,.

Is that fine ? or are there any differences.

Please advice

    So you didn't install the database but only failsafe.

    Did you check for notes? In your example I'd e. g. fire up a browser to http://service.sap.com/notes and enter

    "oracle windows 2008"

    pretty much at the top of the list there's a note

    Note 1303262 - Oracle on Windows Server 2008

    which tells you which DVD you need to install Oracle 10.2.0.4 on Windows 2008.

    And do not execute setup.exe but use the provided script sapserver.cmd.

      From your initial query, I've inferred that you have installed 10.2.0.4.0 from the second DVD.

      For Windows server 2008, oracle 10.2.0.4.0 has to be installed directly. In this version of OS, installing oracle 10.2.0.1.0 and then patching it to 10.2.0.4.0 is not possible. So, whatever you have done is correct.

      In case if you are going for MSCS cluster, then you will need Failsafe software(available in the same DVD) to be installed.

      BTW: I hope you would have executed startsrv.cmd to install Oracle DB SW as insisted by Markus.
