Unable to install BOE4 on LINUX with an Oracle repository

Hi, I'm trying to install BOE4 on Linux 5.7. At the installation, the default DB2 database is the only option! so i am forced to use DB2 at this stage. After the installation is complete I try to re-point the new node to an Oracle db instead, This fails after creating 7 oracle tables (so connectivity does not seem and issue).

I've also tried creating a 2nd node on the same server, and this also fails with the same error.

Any ideas?

    The proper install package does has an option to use non-default Database, please review installation guide for unix which shows the steps.

    As to the second issue - which error do you receive?
    You should never-ever re-point existing SIA to a new CMS DB, you always, always have to create new SIA.

    What exact version is your Oracle DB?

    What exact version is your Oracle Client?

    What is your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is set to?

    What is your PATH variable set to?

      Thanks very much to Denis, Romain and A.

      using all your advice it has now worked.

      to recap, Linux 5.7 environment, Oragle 11g database used for repositories.

      I uninstalled and removed all the existing BOE4 files

      I used the latest BOE4 base installation files, replaced the 3 files that Romain mentioned above, and it installed ok using Oracle as the repository database. Then installed fixpack 17.

      on the server I used, the whole process took nearly 3 hours.

      Thanks again guys.
