OUI giving issues while installation of IDES server on AIX 6.1

Hi gurus,

We are installing ECC IDES server on AIX 6.1 with oracle 10.2 database.

As mentioned in the installation guide we had downloaded

RDBMS_SAP_64.zip and replace the SAP directory

in /oracle/stage/102_64/database/Disk1/

with the extracted one from RDBMS_SAP_64.zip.

after that we ran rootpre.sh from root user, but while executing it we

got following output:

oadext pw-syscall32 rootpre.sh

localhost:oraecd 20> su root

root's Password:

  1. ./rootpre.sh

./rootpre.sh output will be logged in /tmp/rootpre.out_10-07-28.21:19:46Saving the original files in /etc/ora_save_10-07-28.21:19:46....

Copying new kernel extension to /etc....

Loading the kernel extension from /etc

Oracle Kernel Extension Loader for AIX

Copyright (c) 1998,1999 Oracle Corporation

Kernel Extension /etc/pw-syscall.64bit_kernel already loaded,

unloading it

Unconfigured the kernel extension successfully

Unloaded the kernel extension successfully

Successfully loaded /etc/pw-syscall.64bit_kernel with kmid: 0x50bff000

Successfully configured /etc/pw-syscall.64bit_kernel with kmid:

The kernel extension was successfuly loaded.

Configuring Asynchronous I/O....

Asynchronous I/O is not installed on this system.

You will need to install it, and either configure it yourself using

'smit aio' or rerun the Oracle root installation procedure.

Configuring POSIX Asynchronous I/O....

Posix Asynchronous I/O is not installed on this system.

You will need to install it, and either configure it yourself using

'smit aio' or rerun the Oracle root installation procedure.

Checking if group services should be configured....

Nothing to configure...

#

but as it dint change the authorisations of SAP directory, i changed it

manually to root:system.

We had run the oracle installer before that. during execution it threw

some error because of which we had to terminate it.

Now post that, whenever we are trying to run the oracle installer ,

1 ) first it shows error in the pre requisite test:

oracle10g does not support current operating system.( NThis issue was

coming earlier also which we ignored because we checked in the PAM and

SAP supports oracle 10g with AIX6.1)

2) now whenever we are trying to proceed with the OUI, we are geting

the error, that we need to shut down the current running process before

continuing.

the process is java.bin.

and when ever i check with the ps -ef | grep java.bin,

the only process which is running is the current OUI installer.

How do i proceed. Kindly help.

Regards,

Ms. Priya

    Hi Priya,

    Asynchronous I/O is not installed on this system.

    On AIX oracle uses AIO filesystem by default for better performance. (You can use CIO as well) Please read note 948294.

    Anyways there is no issues in rootpre.sh.

    oracle10g does not support current operating system

    check OSS Note 980426 - Oracle 10.2 Software installation on new operating systems

    now whenever we are trying to proceed with the OUI, we are geting

    Note 1380818 - Oracle Installer Detects Java Process Running on ORACLE_HOME

    Hope this will help you.

    Thanks,

    Sachin

    Hi Priya,

    May be my reply seems so simple and stupid but Í remember I've faced the same issue and reolved by switching the user with the command "su -" or "su -root" instead of "su root".

    Give a try and then let us know if the issue still persists.
