|Oracle® Collaboration Suite Installation and Configuration Guide
Release 2 (18.104.22.168) for hp Tru64 UNIX
Part Number B12232-02
This chapter describes how to get started with the three Oracle Collaboration Suite installations. You must follow the procedures in this chapter to ensure that the installation process is successful.
This chapter contains these topics:
Oracle Collaboration Suite includes CD-ROMs for installing the following products:
Oracle Collaboration Suite information storage
Oracle Collaboration Suite
Oracle Collaboration Suite Clients
The Oracle CD-ROMs are in ISO 9660 format with Rockridge extensions. You can either choose to install directly from the CD-ROMs, or copy the CD-ROM contents and then install from your system hard drive. You must complete the procedures required for the installation method you choose before starting Oracle Universal Installer.
For operating systems that do not support automatic mounting of CD-ROMs, the CD-ROMs must be mounted manually. You must have
root privileges to mount or unmount a CD-ROM. Be sure to unmount a CD-ROM before removing it from the drive.
Mount disk 1 to begin the installation. Mount the subsequent disk or disks when prompted to do so. Perform the following steps to mount the CD-ROM manually:
Place CD-ROM disk 1 into the CD-ROM drive.
Log in as the root user and create a CD-ROM mount point directory, if one does not already exist, by using the following commands:
$ su root # mkdir cdrom_mount_point_directory
Use the following command to determine the device_name:
# ls /dev/disk/cdrom*c
The command should return the following line:
Mount the CD-ROM drive on the mount point directory, then exit the root account by using the following commands:
# mount options device_name cdrom_mount_point_directory # exit
Example 5-1 shows how to mount the CD-ROM manually.
Example 5-1 Mounting the HP Tru64 UNIX CD-ROM Manually
$ su root # mkdir /cdrom # mount -t cdfs -r -o nodefperm,noversion,rrip /dev/disk/cdrom0c /cdrom # exit
In the preceding example,
/dev/cd0 is the CD-ROM device.
If you run the Oracle Universal Installer while the current working directory is in the CD-ROM, perform the following steps to mount the next CD-ROM:
Change directory to the root directory of the system, and log in as the root user using the following commands:
$ cd / $ su root
Unmount the CD-ROM by using the following command:
# umount cdrom_mount_point_directory
Remove the CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive.
Insert and mount the next CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive by using the following command:
Enter the correct mount point in the installation dialog box of the Oracle Universal Installer.
Click OK to continue.
You can avoid the need to mount and unmount CD-ROMs during installation by copying the contents of each CD-ROM to your system hard drive. You must have a file system that is not in use by other applications and enough disk space available.
Copy each CD-ROM to your system hard drive under a directory named
Disk1 for the first CD-ROM, a directory named
Disk2 for the second CD-ROM, and so on (depending upon the number of the CD-ROM in the sequence of disks that comprises the set).
Start Oracle Universal Installer. Oracle Universal Installer automatically finds the contents of each CD-ROM and does not prompt for the location of any CD-ROM during the course of the installation.
Oracle Collaboration Suite uses Oracle Universal Installer to guide you through each step of the installation process. Oracle Universal Installer provides the following features:
Describes installation options for Oracle Collaboration Suite
Detects preset environment variables and configuration settings
Sets environment variables and configuration during installation
Deinstalls Oracle Collaboration Suite products
This section describes the following Oracle Universal Installer features:
Oracle Universal Installer automatically checks your computer prior to installation to verify that your system meets operational requirements. Table 5-1 lists the prerequisite checks that are performed.

Oracle Universal Installer creates the
oraInventory directory the first time it is run on a computer. The
oraInventory directory keeps an inventory of products that Oracle Universal Installer installs on your computer, as well as other installation information. If you have previously installed Oracle products, then you may already have an
The UNIX group that owns Oracle Universal Installer must have permission to write to the
oraInventory directory. Attempts to run Oracle Universal Installer without this permission fails. For more information, see "UNIX Group Name for the Oracle Universal Installer Inventory".
The log file of the most recent installation is:
your_base_directory identifier is the location for your installation files and
todays_date_time is the date and time of installation.
Do not delete or manually alter the
oraInventory directory or its contents. Doing so can prevent Oracle Universal Installer from locating products that you have installed on your system.
When you are planning to install a subsequent Oracle Collaboration Suite or Oracle9iAS Infrastructure installation on the same host, Oracle Corporation recommends the following steps:
Review Chapter 2, "Preparing for Installation" for preinstallation tasks.
Do not delete or modify the directories listed in Table 5-1 for subsequent Oracle Collaboration Suite installations.
Stop the Oracle Enterprise Manager Web site. For more information, see the Oracle9i Application Server Administrator's Guide.
Ensure that all other previously installed Oracle Collaboration Suite instances are running when you begin installation.
Specify a different Oracle home than the first Oracle Collaboration Suite installation.
Use the same
oraInventory directory for subsequent Oracle Collaboration Suite installations.
Review Chapter 4, "Oracle Collaboration Suite Deployment Methods" in this guide to ensure successful coexistence of Oracle Collaboration Suite components.
Oracle Universal Installer automatically installs the Oracle-supplied version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). This version is required to run Oracle Universal Installer and several Oracle assistants. Do not modify the JRE except by using a patch provided by Oracle Support Services.
On hp Tru64 UNIX, Oracle Universal Installer prompts for the downloaded/installed location of JDK 1.3.1.

Follow these steps to start Oracle Universal Installer and each Oracle Collaboration Suite installation:
Ensure that you have completed all the requirements described in Chapter 2, "Preparing for Installation".
Print and complete the installation checklists in Appendix B, "Installation Checklists" for each installation. Many of the values are needed to complete the other installations and configurations.
Log in as the
Insert the first CD-ROM of the appropriate installation into the CD-ROM drive.
Mount the installation CD-ROM as described in "Installing Oracle Components from the CD-ROMs" for your operating system.

Note:If you install Oracle Collaboration Suite information storage on a cluster, the Cluster Node Selection screen appears. Select the nodes on which you want to install the Oracle software. Real Application Clusters software is installed on the node from which Oracle Universal Installer is run and copied to the other selected nodes in the cluster. The local node is always selected by default.
Do not install Oracle9iAS Infrastructure or Oracle Collaboration Suite on a cluster. Only Oracle Collaboration Suite Information Storage can be installed on a cluster.
