2 Logging In to the System as root

Before you install the Oracle software, you must complete several tasks as the root user. To log in as the root user, complete one of the following procedures:

Note:

You must install the software from an X Window System workstation, an X terminal, or a PC or other system with X server software installed
  • Following are the steps for installing the software from an X Window System workstation or X terminal:

    1. Start a local terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    2. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter the following command to enable the remote host to display X applications on the local X server:

      $ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      

      For example:

      $ xhost somehost.us.example.com
      
    3. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then use the ssh, rlogin, or telnet command to connect to the system where you want to install the software:

      $ telnet fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      
    4. If you are not logged in as the root user, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su -
      password:
      #
      
  • Following are the steps for installing the software from a PC or other system with X server software:

    Note:

    If necessary, refer to your X server documentation for more information about completing this procedure. Depending on the X server software that you are using, you may need to complete the tasks in a different order.
    1. Start the X server software.

    2. Configure the security settings of the X server software to permit remote hosts to display X applications on the local system.

    3. Connect to the remote system where you want to install the software and start a terminal session on that system, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    4. If you are not logged in as the root user on the remote system, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su -
      password:
      #
      

3 Checking the Hardware Requirements

The system must meet the following minimum hardware requirements:

3.1 Memory Requirements

The following are the memory requirements for installing Oracle Database 11g Release 1:

  • At least 1 GB of RAM

    To determine the RAM size, enter the following command:

    # /usr/contrib/bin/machinfo  | grep -i Memory
    

    If the size of the RAM is less than the required size, then you must install more memory before continuing.

  • The following table describes the relationship between installed RAM and the configured swap space requirement:

    Available RAM Swap Space Required
    Between 1024 MB and 2048 MB 1.5 times the size of RAM
    Between 2049 MB and 8192 MB Equal to the size of RAM
    More than 8192 MB 0.75 times the size of RAM

To determine the size of the configured swap space, enter the following command:

# /usr/sbin/swapinfo -a

If necessary, refer to the operating system documentation for information about how to configure additional swap space.

Note:

Oracle recommends that you take multiple values for the available RAM and swap space before finalizing a value. This is because the available RAM and swap space keep changing depending on the user interactions with the computer.

3.2 System Architecture

To determine whether the system architecture can run the software, enter the following command:

# /bin/getconf KERNEL_BITS

Note:

The expected output of this command is 64. If you do not see the expected output, then you cannot install the software on this system.

3.3 Disk Space Requirements

The following are the disk space requirements for installing Oracle Database 11g Release 1:

  • Between 150 and 400 MB of disk space in the /tmp directory

    To determine the amount of disk space available in the /tmp directory, enter the following command:

    # bdf /tmp
    

    If there is less than 400 MB of free disk space available in the /tmp directory, then complete one of the following steps:

    • Delete unnecessary files from the /tmp directory to meet the disk space requirement.

    • Set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables when setting the oracle user's environment (described later).

    • Extend the file system that contains the /tmp directory. If necessary, contact the system administrator for information about extending file systems.

  • To determine the amount of free disk space on the system, enter the following command:

    # bdf
    
  • Between 1.5 GB and 3.5 GB of disk space for the Oracle software, depending on the installation type. The following table describes the disk space requirements for software files for each installation type:

    Installation Type Requirement for Software Files (GB)
    Enterprise Edition 6.89
    Standard Edition 6.09
    Custom (maximum) 6.89

  • The following table describes the disk space requirements for each installation type:

    Installation Type Disk Space for Data Files (GB)
    Enterprise Edition 1.69
    Standard Edition 1.48
    Custom (maximum) 1.81

    Additional disk space, either on a file system or in an Automatic Storage Management disk group, is required for the flash recovery area if you choose to configure automated backups.

4 Checking the Software Requirements

Depending on the products that you intend to install, verify that the following software are installed on the system.

4.1 Operating System Requirements

The following are the operating system requirements for Oracle Database 11g Release 1:

  • HP-UX 11i v2 (11.23)

  • HP-UX 11i v3 (11.31)

To determine the distribution and version of HP-UX installed, enter the following command:

# uname -a

HP-UX hostname B.11.23 ia64 109444686 unlimited-user license

In this example, the version of HP-UX 11i is 11.23.

To determine whether a bundle, product, or fileset is installed, enter a command similar to the following, where level is bundle, product, or fileset:

# /usr/sbin/swlist -l level | more

If a required bundle, product, or fileset is not installed, then you must install it. Refer to your operating system or software documentation for information about installing products.

In addition, you need to verify that the following patches are installed on the system. The procedure following the table describes how to check these requirements.

Note:

There may be more recent versions of the patches listed installed on the system. If a listed patch is not installed, then determine whether a more recent version is installed before installing the version listed.

4.2 Compiler Requirements

The following are the compiler requirements for HP-UX on Itanium Pro*C/C++, Oracle Call Interface, Oracle C++ Call Interface, and Oracle XML Developer's Kit (XDK) with Oracle Database 11g Release 1:

  • HP C/ANSI C Compiler (A.06.14)

    HP ANSI C compiler (C.06.10) - June 2006 (AR0606) release

  • HP aC++ Compiler (A.06.14)

    C++ (aCC) compiler (C.06.10) - June 2006 (AR0606) release

4.3 Patch Requirement

In addition, you need to verify that the following patches are installed on the system.

Note:

There may be more recent versions of the patches listed installed on the system. If a listed patch is not installed, then determine whether a more recent version is installed before installing the version listed.

To determine whether a patch is installed, enter a command similar to the following:

# /usr/sbin/swlist -l patch | grep PHSS_28880

Alternatively, to list all installed patches, enter the following command:

# /usr/sbin/swlist -l patch | more

If a required patch is not installed, then download it from the following Web site and install it:

http://itresourcecenter.hp.com

If the Web site shows a more recent version of the patch, then download and install that version.

4.4 Additional Software Requirements

Depending on the components you want to use, you must ensure that the following software are installed:

4.4.1 Oracle ODBC Drivers

If you intend to use ODBC, then you should build and install the most recent ODBC Driver Manager. You can download and install the Driver Manager from the following link:

http://www.unixodbc.org

You do not require ODBC Driver Manager to install Oracle Database.

To use ODBC, you must also install gcc 3.4.5 or later

4.4.2 Oracle JDBC/OCI Drivers

You can use Java SDK 5.0 as an optional software with the Oracle JDBC/OCI drivers. However, this is not required for the installation.

4.4.3 Oracle Messaging Gateway

Oracle Messaging Gateway supports the integration of Oracle Streams Advanced Queuing (AQ) with the following software:

  • IBM WebSphere MQ V6.0, client and server:

    MQSERIES.MQM-CL-HPUX
    MQSERIES.MQM-SERVER
    
  • TIBCO Rendezvous 7.2

If you require a CSD for WebSphere MQ, then refer to the following Web site for download and installation information:

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/integration/wmq/support

4.4.4 Browser Requirements

Web browsers must support Java Script and the HTML 4.0 and CSS 1.0 standards. The following browsers meet these requirements:

  • On Oracle Application Express:

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later version

    • Firefox 1.0 or a later version

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0

    • Firefox 1.0.4

    • Firefox 1.5

    • Firefox 2.0

5 Creating Required Operating System Groups and Users

The following local operating system groups and users are required if you are installing Oracle Database:

  • The Oracle Inventory group (oinstall)

  • The OSDBA group (dba)

  • The Oracle software owner (oracle)

To determine whether these groups and users already exist, and if necessary, to create them, follow these steps:

  1. To determine whether the oinstall group exists, enter the following command:

    # more /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc
    

    If the output of this command shows the oinstall group name, then the group already exists.

    Note:

    In Oracle documentation, Oracle Inventory group is called oinstall. However, it is not mandatory to use the same name, you can enter a different name for the group.

    If the oraInst.loc file exists, then the output from this command is similar to the following:

    inventory_loc=/u01/app/oraInventory
    inst_group=oinstall
    

    The inst_group parameter shows the name of the Oracle Inventory group, oinstall.

  2. To determine whether the dba group exists, enter the following command:

    # grep dba /etc/group
    

    If the output from this commands shows the dba group name, then the group already exists.

  3. If necessary, enter the following commands to create the oinstall and dba groups:

    # /usr/sbin/groupadd oinstall
    # /usr/sbin/groupadd dba
    
  4. To determine whether the oracle user exists and belongs to the correct groups, enter the following command:

    # id oracle
    

    If the oracle user exists, then this command displays information about the groups to which the user belongs. The output should be similar to the following, indicating that oinstall is the primary group and dba is a secondary group:

    uid=440(oracle) gid=200(oinstall) groups=201(dba),202(oper)
    
  5. If necessary, complete one of the following actions:

    • If the oracle user exists, but its primary group is not oinstall or it is not a member of the dba group, then enter the following command:

      # /usr/sbin/usermod -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      
    • If the oracle user does not exist, enter the following command to create it:

      # /usr/sbin/useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      

      This command creates the oracle user and specifies oinstall (for example) as the primary group and dba as the secondary group.

  6. Enter the following command to set the password of the oracle user:

    # passwd oracle
    

6 Configure Kernel Parameters

Note:

The kernel parameter values shown in this section are recommended values only. For production database systems, Oracle recommends that you tune these values to optimize the performance of the system. See your operating system documentation for more information about tuning kernel parameters.

Verify that the kernel parameters shown in the following table are set either to the formula shown, or to values greater than or equal to the recommended value shown. The procedure following the table describes how to verify and set the values.

Parameter Recommended Formula or Value
ksi_alloc_max (nproc*8)
executable_stack 0
max_thread_proc 1024
maxdsiz 1073741824 (1 GB)
maxdsiz_64bit 2147483648 (2 GB)
maxssiz 134217728 (128 MB)
maxssiz_64bit 1073741824 (1 GB)
maxuprc ((nproc*9)/10)
msgmni (nproc)
msgtql (nproc)
ncsize (8*nproc+3072)
nfile (15*nproc+2048)
nflocks (nproc)
ninode (8*nproc+2048)
nkthread (((nproc*7)/4)+16)
nproc 4096
semmni (nproc)
semmns (semmni*2)
semmnu (nproc-4)
semvmx 32767
shmmax The size of memory or 1073741824 (0X40000000), whichever is greater.

Note: To avoid performance degradation, the value should be greater than or equal to the size of the available memory.

shmmni 4096
shmseg 512
vps_ceiling 64

Note:

If the current value for any parameter is higher than the value listed in this table, then do not change the value of that parameter. The following kernel parameters are obsolete HP_UX 11.31. You need not specify values for these parameters:
  • msgmax

  • msgssz

  • msgmap

  • msgseg

To view the current value or formula specified for these kernel parameters, and to change them if necessary:

  1. Enter the following command to start the kcweb application:

    # /usr/sbin/kcweb -F
    
  2. Check the value or formula specified for each of these parameters and, if necessary, modify that value or formula.

    If necessary, refer to the kcweb online Help for more information about completing this step.

    Note:

    If you modify the value of a parameter that is not dynamic, then you must restart the system.

7 Creating Required Directories

Create directories with names similar to the following, and specify the correct owner, group, and permissions for them:

  • The Oracle base directory

  • An optional Oracle data file directory

The Oracle base directory must have 3 GB of free disk space, or 4 GB of free disk space if you choose not to create a separate Oracle data file directory.

Note:

If you do not want to create a separate Oracle data file directory, then you can install the data files in a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory. However, this is not recommended for production databases.

To create the Oracle base directory:

  1. Enter the following command to display information about all mounted file systems:

    # bdf
    

    This command displays information about all the file systems mounted on the system, including:

    • The physical device name

    • The total amount, used amount, and available amount of disk space

    • The mount point directory for that file system

  2. From the display, identify either one or two file systems that meet the disk space requirements mentioned earlier in this section.

  3. Note the name of the mount point directory for each file system that you identified.

  4. Enter commands similar to the following to create the recommended subdirectories in the mount point directory that you identified and set the appropriate owner, group, and permissions on them:

    # mkdir /mount_point/oradata
    # chown oracle:oinstall /mount_point/oradata
    # chmod 775 /mount_point/oradata
    

8 Configuring the oracle User's Environment

You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start Oracle Universal Installer, you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To configure the environment, you must:

  • Set the default file mode creation mask (umask) to 022 in the shell startup file.

  • Set the DISPLAY environment variable.

To set the oracle user's environment:

  1. Start a new terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

  2. Enter the following command to ensure that X Window applications can display on this system:

    $ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
    

    For example:

    $ xhost somehost.us.example.com
    
  3. Complete one of the following steps:

    • If the terminal session is not connected to the system where you want to install the software, then log in to that system as the oracle user.

    • If the terminal session is connected to the system where you want to install the software, then switch user to oracle:

      $ su - oracle
      
  4. To determine the default shell for the oracle user, enter the following command:

    $ echo $SHELL
    
  5. Open the oracle user's shell startup file in any text editor:

    • Bash shell (bash):

      $ vi .profile
      
    • Bourne shell (sh), Bash shell (bash), or Korn shell (ksh):

      $ vi .bash_profile
      
    • C shell (csh or tcsh):

      % vi .login
      
  6. Enter or edit the following line in the shell startup file, specifying a value of 022 for the default file mode creation mask:

    umask 022
    
  7. If the ORACLE_SID, ORACLE_HOME, or ORACLE_BASE environment variable is set in the file, then remove the corresponding lines from the file.

  8. Save the file, and exit from the editor.

  9. To run the shell startup script, enter the following command:

    • Bash shell on Red Hat:

      $ . ./.bash_profile
      
    • Bourne shell, Bash shell, or Korn shell:

      $ . ./.profile
      
    • C shell:

      % source ./.login
      
  10. If you are not installing the software on the local computer, then run the following command on the remote machine to set the DISPLAY variable:

    • Bourne, Bash or Korn shell:

      $ export DISPLAY=local_host:0.0      
      
    • C shell:

      % setenv DISPLAY local_host:0.0
      

    In this example, local_host is the host name or IP address of the local computer that you want to use to display Oracle Universal Installer.

    Run the following command on the remote machine to check if the shell and the DISPLAY environmental variable are set correctly:

    echo $SHELL
    echo $DISPLAY
    

    Now to enable X applications, run the following commands on the local computer:

    $ xhost + fully_qualified_remote_host_name
    

    To verify that X applications display is set properly, run a X11 based program that comes with the operating system such as xclock:

    $ xclock_path
    

    In this example, xclock_path is the directory path. For example, you can find xclock at /usr/X11R6/bin/xclocks. If the DISPLAY variable is set properly, then you can see xclock on your computer screen.

    See Also:

    PC-X Server or Operating System vendor documents for further assistance.
  11. If you determined that the /tmp directory had insufficient free disk space when checking the hardware requirements, then identify a file system with the required amount of free space and set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables as follows:

    1. Use the df -k command to identify a suitable file system with sufficient free space.

    2. If necessary, enter commands similar to the following to create a temporary directory on the file system that you identified, and set the appropriate permissions on the directory:

      # sudo mkdir /mount_point/tmp
      # sudo chmod a+wr /mount_point/tmp
      # exit
      
    3. Enter commands similar to the following to set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables:

      Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ TMP=/mount_point/tmp
      $ TMPDIR=/mount_point/tmp
      $ export TMP TMPDIR
      

      C shell:

      % setenv TMP /mount_point/tmp
      % setenv TMPDIR /mount_point/tmp
      
  12. Enter commands similar to the following to set the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_SID environment variables:

    • Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
      $ ORACLE_SID=sales
      $ export ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_SID
      
    • C shell:

      % setenv ORACLE_BASE /u01/app/oracle
      % setenv ORACLE_SID sales
      

    In these examples, /u01/app/oracle is the Oracle base directory that you created or identified earlier and sales is the name that you want to call the database (typically no more than five characters).

  13. Enter the following commands to ensure that the ORACLE_HOME and TNS_ADMIN environment variables are not set:

    Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

    $ unset ORACLE_HOME
    $ unset TNS_ADMIN
    

    C shell:

    % unsetenv ORACLE_HOME
    % unsetenv TNS_ADMIN
    
  14. To verify that the environment has been set correctly, enter the following commands:

    $ umask
    $ env | more
    

    Verify that the umask command displays a value of 22, 022, or 0022 and the environment variables that you set in this section have the correct values.

9 Mounting the Product Disc

On most HP-UX on Itanium systems, the product disc mounts automatically when you insert it into the drive. If the disc does not mount automatically, then follow these steps to mount it:

  1. Switch user to root:

    $ su -
    password
    #
    
  2. If necessary, enter the following command to unmount the currently mounted disc, then remove it from the drive:

    # /usr/sbin/umount /SD_DVD
    

    In this example, /SD_DVD is the mount point directory for the disc drive.

  3. Insert the appropriate disc into the disc drive, then enter a command similar to the following to mount it:

    # /usr/sbin/mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/cxtydz /SD_DVD
    

    In this example, /SD_DVD is the disc mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydz is the device name for the disc device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t2d0.

  4. If Oracle Universal Installer is displaying the Disk Location dialog box, enter the disc mount point directory path, for example:

    /SD_DVD
    

10 Installing Oracle Database

After configuring the oracle user's environment, start Oracle Universal Installer and install Oracle Database as follows:

  1. To start Oracle Universal Installer, enter the following command:

    $ /mount_point/db/runInstaller
    

    If Oracle Universal Installer does not start, then refer to Oracle Database Installation Guide for Linux for information about how to troubleshoot X Window display problems.

  2. The following table describes the recommended action for each Oracle Universal Installer screen. Use the following guidelines to complete the installation:

    • If you need more assistance, or if you want to choose an option that is not a default, then click Help for additional information.

    • If you encounter errors while installing or linking the software, then refer to Oracle Database Installation Guide for Linux for information about troubleshooting.

    Note:

    • If you have completed the tasks listed previously, then you can complete the installation by choosing the default values on most screens.

    • In Oracle documentation, Oracle Inventory group is called oinstall. However, it is not mandatory to use the same name, you can enter a different name for the group.
